Virat Kohli's form in the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup 2022 has sent chills down the spine of opponents. Since helping India beat Pakistan in their opening encounter, Kohli has accumulated 246 runs at an average of 123. 

Ahead of England's clash against India in the semi-finals at Adelaide, former skipper Nasser Hussain has called Kohli the Three Lions' main threat.  ​Writing for DailyMail, Hussain noted that Kohli is an all-time great, and knows the art to pulling off unimaginable chases under high pressure situations.

Another cause of concern for England is Kohli's track record in Adelaide, where he has five international hundreds and over 900+ runs.​

​Hussain on how to stop Kohli

"Kohli may soak up deliveries at first. He is not like Suryakumar Yadav, who comes out aggressively. But just when you think you have got him down he will put his foot on the gas and then it all changes. How do you get Kohli out? 

"I would go with Adil Rashid when he comes in. Kohli hits very well square of the wicket and the square boundaries are short here."

Hussain further stated that Kohli's motivation lies in winning games for India and not numbers or rankings.

"Kohli is fiery on the field but with a bat in his hand he is cool and calculating. He thinks through situations and loves the battle. He is not driven by his statistics - all he worries about is how many games he can win for India."
