With Virat Kohli back in form, Indian batting line gets much need boost

New Delhi: Finally, the linchpin of India batting lineup, Virat Kohli, is back after a slump in form during the entire England tour.

A fifty followed by a magnificent ton against West Indies is a proof that the Indian batting maestro, who has been consistent in all formats of the game for the last few years, is back with a bang.

The way he executed his innings during the last ODI in Dharamsala, hinted that the aggressive batsman has left his psychological clot behind him. This shows that he is now ready to lead the Indian batting line-up for the ICC World Cup 2015.

The way he paced his innings during his 20th ODI ton was a perfect reminder of how he utilises his time till the end of the innings. His 121 runs came off just 114 balls, which was laced with 13 boundaries and three sixes.

In fact, when he completed his hundred he didn't cuss, but gently raised his bat, which shows that he has finally come of age.

The Indian batting line up is once again looking rock-soild after the 'new run-machine' of Indian team has shown the renewed vigor in his batting, ahead of the 2015 World Cup.

With batsmen like Suresh Raina, Ajinkya Rahane, Shikhar Dhawan and now Kohli all are among the runs, India's batting line-up, is once again looking set to defend the world title.
