Why does Kohli's average in finals fall to 28 when all other matches gets him 61? Why cant he up his game when it matters like Smith, whos finals average is 67, up from 39 when it doesnt matter?

You mean he is like Smith in Test whose 4 th innings average is 30 and is yet to hit a century in 4 th innings :cool:

Most of those games were in 2010 or so when he was not great.

Of the rest he’s had 98*, 58* and a 40 odd which was the top score in the rain reduced CT finals against England.

Notable failures include 2015 semi finals, 2017 CT finals and 2019 semi finals.

Overall not a huge sample size but definitely something of concern.

Even if he scored a golden in all those games he’s still comfortably better than Smith though.

Lol you’re now turning the odi thread into tests
As I said in other thread, there is no comparison between Smith vs Kohli. Both are definitely superior in Test and Limited overs format respectively. So any Smith vs Kohli thread will always have off-topic posts.

Kohli has played a crucial innings in 2011 WC final. He was also the highest run scorer in a narrow win in Champions Trophy final 2013. For sure, he needs to do a lot more to match or get ahead of Viv who remains the GOAT in ODIs, but ffs he is not a nobody in ICC tournament finals.

Smith is nowhere in the same league in ODIs. It is not even up for debate.
