In addition to it, the veteran cricketer said that Kohli will be crucial to Team India's success. After an elongated lean period in international cricket, the 34-year-old has regained his touch. During the 2022 edition of the T20 World Cup in Australia, the former Indian captain scored the most runs, with 296 in six games at an average of 98.67 and a strike rate of 136.41 and will be keen to carry on with the form in the upcoming marquee tournament also which will be played in India only.

In a recent interview on Revsportz with Boria Majumdar, Ntini came up with an interesting piece of advice for all the teams who will be playing against Kohli in the World Cup.

“One thing that I can tell you about Virat Kohli as a bowler, you should not abuse him. He starves for someone to say something that will tick him . You should leave him as it is. Let him play his natural game and make his own mistake. That’s how countries will be able to get him out because he gets frustrated when there’s no one saying something to him. The moment you see someone who is trying to tick him off, he becomes dangerous. For me, as any other country that is playing against India, don’t say a word. Let him be him. Let him make his own mistake without anyone saying a word to him,” the former Proteas pacer opined.
