There is only one thing wrong about Virat Kohli's technique. Virat plays almost every ball on the front foot which is understandable as he would have grown up on low bouncing pitches and against slower bowlers. He can play most balls in ODI cricket as there are a lot less short balls but he struggles at Test level especially in Australia play defending short of a length balls on the front rather than the back foot bringing his downfall.
