Akshar Patel and Rohit Sharma were also surprised when Kohli, who is known as an active fielder, dropped a catch like this. After this Virat also dropped another catch like this. In this sequence, former Australian cricketer Mark Waugh, who is acting as a commentator for the Nagpur Test, reacted strongly to Kohli’s fielding. Even though Kohli is on the cricket ground, he is playing in a body present and mind absent style.
It is very surprising that Kohli, who is known as the top fielder, missed two catches like this. Even though Kohli is in the game, only his body is present, his mind is absent. A player on the field should be alert to every ball coming his way. Slip fielding requires a lot of concentration. Markwa criticized Kohli by saying that we miss catches like this which are forgotten for a moment. These comments have now become a hot topic. Cricket fans are furious over Mark Waugh’s comments criticizing Kohli. ‘Not everyone can be as sharp as you.. Sometimes mistakes happen. We know how good a fielder Kohli is. You don’t need to make fun of me so much,’ says Mark.
