New Delhi: Virat Kohli has now come in his old color. He is constantly batting brilliantly. This right-handed batsman scored a century against Sunrisers Hyderabad in IPL-2023 on Thursday. This was his first century of this season. Seeing his form, former Australia captain and Delhi Capitals coach Ricky Ponting has said a big thing. Ponting feels that Virat Kohli can become a big headache for Australia in the ICC World Test Championship next month.
India will face Australia in the final of the second World Test Championship on June 7 at The Oval ground. Last time too, India had made it to the final of the Test Championship but had to face defeat at the hands of New Zealand. Team India would now like to remove any stone unturned from this matter.

Virat is in excellent form
Ponting said in an event organized by the ICC that he had spoken to Kohli a few days ago in Bangalore and in their conversation Kohli had told him that he felt he was in the best form of his career. Ponting said that the way Kohli scored a century against Hyderabad on Thursday shows the form he is in and he will be a key wicket for Australia in the final of the Test Championship.

India’s top order and Australian bowling clash
Ponting feels that this match will be a clash between India’s top order and Australia’s fast bowling attack. Ponting said that usually there is a competition between Indian spinners and Australian batsmen, but this time it will not happen due to the oval wicket. Captain Ponting, who won Australia the World Cup twice under his captaincy, said that when he used to play, The Oval’s wicket was a good wicket for batting. He said that this match will be great.
