Dominic Bess Rates His Performance Against India As His Best
Indian skipper Virat Kohli, who is the backbone of Team India’s batting line-up, innings ended at a score of 11 runs. Dom Bess in a virtual conference said that taking Virat Kohli’s wicket is very satisfying. As per him, the bowlers will have to bowl in the right areas consistently in order to grab wickets at Cheapauk.
“Kohli’s wicket is certainly the most satisfying of my career. He is obviously one of the best players. It is very special, but more for what my process was. It is not about bowling that magic ball. It’s about smashing in 10-15 balls in a good area and then something will happen.
Bess has taken two-five wicket haul i-e- South Africa and Sri Lanka. But, he rates his bowling against Team India as one of his best ever.
“Yeah, I think this is the best I have ever bowled. I thought I bowled really well in South Africa (a year ago), but I am coming into this series with not a lot of preparation,” he stated.
The off-spinner also backed his teammate Jack Leach to mark a strong comeback in the game. The latter gave away 94 runs in 17 overs without getting a single breakthrough for the side.
“I thought he bowled really well too. Pant is a completely different player. But he came back again and just kept hitting good areas. He is strong mentally and those hits are not going to faze him,” Bess added.
