Misbah-ul-Haq, former captain of Pakistan, noted that Virat Kohli maintains a mental edge over Pakistani players. He commended Kohli's prowess in the white-ball format and advised the Babar Azam-led team to be cautious of his impact. The highly anticipated encounter between India and Pakistan is scheduled for June 9 in New York, USA, during the T20 World Cup.
During the Star Sports Press Room Show, Misbah discussed the mindset of players when facing opposition against whom they have previously excelled. India boasts a record of winning 6 out of 7 encounters against Pakistan in T20 World Cups.
"Players have a muscle memory, and it is in their minds when they take on an opposition against whom they perform well. Your impact always stays strong in those matches and it affects the opposition as well. Virat Kohli has that edge, the way in initial matches he performed against other teams and Pakistan he damaged the team by playing crucial innings," he said.
Kohli has historically been a formidable opponent for Pakistan in T20 World Cups. In their recent clash during the 2022 T20 World Cup at the iconic Melbourne Cricket Ground in Australia, Kohli delivered one of his finest T20 performances. His unbeaten innings of 82 runs from 53 balls played a pivotal role in India's thrilling victory, snatched from the brink of defeat.
Misbah observed that Kohli exhibits heightened intensity whenever he faces Pakistan, displaying an extra level of motivation.
"Virat Kohli holds a mental supremacy over Pakistan. He would feel more confident in those situations while playing against Pakistan and much more charged up."
Misbah recalled the 2017 Champions Trophy final, where Mohammad Amir's dismissal of Kohli for 5 was a pivotal moment. The former Pakistan captain emphasized that Pakistan's chances improve significantly if they manage to dismiss Virat Kohli early in the upcoming match in New York.
"He is that kind of player, the bigger the opportunity, rather than taking pressure, he takes motivation from that. He is a top-class cricketer and he has the capability to perform against any opposition. There is only one way, the way he was dismissed initially in the Champions Trophy, Pakistan or any other team has to get him out," Misbah further added.
