Ask Kohli, he will never worry about Johnson but will always doubt against Anderson: Irfan Pathan

Irfan Pathan stressing on the impact of swing bowling, says a batsman like Virat Kohli should be compared to someone like James Anderson than Mitchell Johnson One has to be more alert to face the person. Emphasizing the effect of swing bowling,Former India all-rounder Irfan Pathan said a batsman like Virat Kohli would never be worried about facing someone like Mitchell Johnson, who has raw pace but will be on his toes against India skipper James Anderson', just because the latter may be a more likely to swing the ball.

Pathan said no batsman likes to be up against the moving ball because it tests the technique of even the simplest within the business.“You ask Virat Kohli, he will never worry about Mitchell Johnson bowling fast because he knows he can are available line, but he will always have doubts about James Anderson. No batsman within the world is comfortable when the ball is moving. The corridor of uncertainty, remember? it'll remain open forever,” Pathan wrote in his column for the Playfield Magazine.

For the record, Kohli had one among his worst series in his international career in 2014 when India toured England. it had been Anderson who had troubled him with the moving ball. The India captain, however, had scored four centuries within the tour of Australia side featuring Mitchell Johnson within the same civil year .Pathan feels speed alone cannot guarantee success for a bowler at the international level. The fear factor not plays a neighborhood because of better equipment, said Pathan while giving the instance of India’s Rishabh Pant and England's Jos Buttler. Both batsmen are known for his or her attacking sort of batting. Pant even reverse swept Anderson during a match game in Ahmedabad and backed that up with another one against Jofra Archer during a T20I.

“We have seen Rishabh Pant and Jos Buttler playing lap shots and reverse sweeps to Pat Cummins and Jofra Archer. Speed alone cannot guarantee success, because batsmen not fear pace. The equipment is so good and bats became better, one touch and it’s out of the bottom feeding off the pace of the ball. you would like skill to survive, and trust me, swing may be a great skill,” Pathan wrote.
