Former South African Cricketing Icon, Makhaya Ntini, Offers a Stark Warning to Bowlers: Trash Talking Virat Kohli Will Only Unleash His Wrath!

The cricketing world is buzzing with the latest words of wisdom from South African legend, Makhaya Ntini, as he speaks candidly about the Indian cricket superstar, Virat Kohli. In a world where competitive banter often skirts the boundary of sportsmanship, Ntini has a different approach to advise bowlers when it comes to Kohli.
What Makes Kohli the Bear You Don’t Want to Poke
Virat Kohli, a name that sends shivers down the spines of bowlers, is not just known for his incredible skill with the bat but also for his ferocious competitiveness. Kohli’s insatiable hunger for runs often reaches a different gear when provoked through sledging.
Makhaya Ntini’s Startling Revelations
Appearing on the ‘Backstage With Boria’ show on Revsportz, Makhaya Ntini dropped a bombshell of advice for bowlers aiming to outwit the Indian maestro. “Don’t sledge Virat Kohli. Any bowler who sledges him will have to pay the price. If you don’t sledge and just let him be, he could get bored and make a mistake,” Ntini advised.
Ntini further elaborated: “Let me tell you something about Virat Kohli, something I will tell every South African bowler who will bowl to him. Don’t say a word to him when he is batting. I repeat, don’t sledge him by saying anything to him. If you do so, you are actually playing into his hands.”
Why Bowlers Should Take Note
The South African speedster’s advice comes as an unconventional tactic in a sport where mental games often play a significant role. Ntini explained that Kohli thrives on conflict. He yearns for it. When he is sledged, it fuels his resolve and makes him even more formidable.
“Makhaya Ntini even said that Kohli might get bored and get out quickly if the opposition bowlers don’t talk to him,” writes Unnati Madan, a passionate cricket writer with over 5 years of experience, in her report published earlier today.
A Different Strategy to Get Kohli Out?
“When he sees a bowler not say things, he will get bored. He needs action in the middle to be at his best. When he doesn’t get it, he will find it boring and that’s when he can make a mistake,” Makhaya Ntini added, suggesting that the ‘silent treatment’ could be the key to getting Kohli out.
So, the question remains. Will bowlers heed Ntini’s advice in the upcoming games, or will they continue to poke the bear, igniting the flame that makes Virat Kohli one of the most exciting batsmen to watch in cricketing history?
Only time will tell, but one thing is for certain: Don’t poke the bear if you’re not prepared for the consequences.
