Fan awaits for most anticipated battles : Kohli vs Anderson.

England is all set to play India for four match test series starting from 28 feb in India. England vs India is highly anticipated battle and it’s complete treat for fans .

Whenever India is set to play against English side , the first thing that strikes to our mind is Virat Kohli vs James Anderson. One of the most cherished and awaited cricketing rivalries is between James Anderson and Indian captain Virat Kohli. It all started when the Englishman dominated the Indian right-hander during MS Dhoni-led India’s 2014 tour of England.

Anderson kept kohli on his toe during this tour where kohli just managed to score  only 134 runs in five Tests, at an average of 13.40 where Anderson gets Virat 4 times.

But then script begins to change , England tour India for 5 match series in 2016/2017 where Indian skipper dominated his counterpart totally and Anderson fails to get the Indian skipper even once in that series.

India then tour England in 2018 and many expected that 2014 will be repeated but skipper Kohli turned the tides and managed to prevent Anderson’s threat throughout the course of the series. In the face-off versus Anderson, Kohli kept him at bay and scored 114 runs in 270 balls without getting dismissed by him.

Anderson recent form in sub continent is excellent he rattled SL with his 40/6 in 1st inning. Tough battle waits for Captain Kohli but we know when going gets tough the tougher gets going.
