Kohli has sorted problems outside off-stump: Brett Lee

Former Australia pace bowler Brett Lee termed India captain Virat Kohli's technique as "impeccable" and the problems outside the off-stump has been sorted by him. "Kohli's technique is impeccable. He has improved it a lot over the last few years and gotten a lot tighter with his technique. There's a lot of hype about him nicking off, certainly as a bowler, you could get a few years ago but now he has changed it," Lee told official TNPL website. "To me, it's his hunger, yes he is such a talented player but his mental strength, his want and will to score so many runs end on end which is why he is one of the world's best batsmen. We haven't seen the best of Kohli yet. He has many more years to come and is really young," he added.

About the current Indian bowlers, Lee said, "You (Indian bowlers) have got some raw pace. To me it's some of the guys, who can back up Test match after Test match. Mohammad Shami is a guy, who when he's probably fit is a guy that really impresses me.
"He is really quick and has good pace. Bumrah is definitely one to watch out for, a unique action works for him and he is got good pace as well. You have got guys, who can bowl over 140 kph consistently. Keeping them on the park and ensuring they are injury-free is more important in my opinion." The Australian also had some good words about young Tamil Nadu all-rounder M S Washington Sundar and said, "I am a big fan of Washington Sundar. He is a very exciting player."
