Manjrekar flags Virat Kohli’s tendency to get on front foot as reason for his batting struggles
Former India batter Sanjay Manjrekar has attributed Virat Kohli’s current struggles to his tendency to bat on the front foot no matter what, and claimed that this is “not helping his cause”.
IPL 2022Kohli, the most successful batter in IPL history with 6624 runs in 215 innings (223 matches) at an average of 36.20 and strike rate of 129.13, has had a poor IPL 2022 as per his own standard as Royal Challengers Bangalore lost in the playoffs once again.
In 16 innings in IPL 2022, Kohli had scored 341 runs at an average of 22.73 and a strike rate of 115.98 with the highest score of 73.
“Virat wanting to be on the front foot no matter what is not helping his cause. Mental toughness takes you far for sure, but technical issues cannot be ignored completely,” Manjrekar tweeted after Royal Challengers Bangalore’s campaign in IPL 2022 came to an end with a seven-wicket defeat to Rajasthan Royals in Ahmedabad on Friday night.
Manjrekar, considered as one of the most technically sound batsmen of his time, also cited the example of how Kohli got out in the Qualifier 2 match against Rajasthan Royals to support his observation.
“Crunch game… front foot to a short of length bouncing ball cost him his wicket again,” Manjrekar said in his tweet.
Kohli, who has not scored an international century since November 2019, has relinquished captaincy in T20 while the selectors decided to hand over the reins to Rohit Sharma in ODIs and Test cricket. He has been advised to take a break from all formats of cricket by Ravi Shastri, with whom the Delhi batter has shared close relations in the last few years.
Doctors in Jaipur take out rally against Right to Heath Bill
The doctors protesting against the Right to Health Bill passed by the Ashok Gehlot-led Congress government in the Rajasthan Assembly last week took out a massive rally here on Monday due to which the medical services across the city remained affected.
As per the provisions of the Right to Health Bill, every resident of the state gets the right to avail free Out Patient Department services and In Patient Department services in all public healthcare facilities apart from getting similar healthcare services free of cost at select private facilities.
The bill was passed last week despite protests by the opposition BJP, besides an agitation by a section of doctors seeking the legislation’s withdrawal.
On Monday, the doctors took out a foot march from SMS Medical College at around 11 a.m. The rally passed through several areas of the city to eventually culminate at the medical college, covering a distance of 4.5 km.
Earlier on Sunday, a meeting of the doctors’ delegation was held with Chief Secretary Usha Sharma but it ended without any conclusion.
Meanwhile, people continued running from pillar to post to seek medical services.
Resident doctors are still on strike in hospitals attached to government medical colleges in Jaipur and other cities of the state.
As resident doctors have been on strike for more than 7 days, the problems of the patients in Jaipur’s SMS and other hospitals are continuously increasing.
Meanwhile, the Health Department has sought information from all districts regarding the status of the hospitals’ operations.
The Police Commissionerate in Jaipur has also sought similar details about the hospitals operating in the area.
Further, fear of action has started troubling the doctors who came out on the streets to protest the Right to Health Bill.
There is a fear that the government may harass them through a police case.
Secretary of Private Hospital and Nursing Society Dr. Vijay Kapoor said that the government should not put any kind of pressure on the resident doctors and other doctors who are supporting the doctors’ agitation.
“If the government takes any action against these doctors, the protest will intensify,” he said.
