Need to plan against Kohli: Dilshan
New Delhi: Virat Kohli's meteoric rise in recent times has prompted Sri Lankan cricket team to devise a game plan for the Indian batsman ahead of next month's T20 World Cup, according to Tillakaratne Dilshan. “We are not meeting them in the first round. If we have to meet India in the Super Eights or the semifinals then we have to plan against him,” Dilshan said. He also rated Kohli as the one of the best young players in world cricket now.
