Everyone is a little worried about Virat Kohli’s form at the moment. One failure after another of the former India captain is also being questioned. Even on the stage of the upcoming World Cup, speculation has started about Virat Kohli’s game. In such a situation, the former legendary cricketer Sunil Gavaskar stood by Virat.
According to him, now is not the time to think about whether Virat Kohli will get a chance in the World Cup squad. And why only Virat Kohli also Rohit Sharma is not in form, why there is no talk about him.
The last time Virat Kohli scored a century was in 2019. Since then, the former India captain has not seen scored a big run with the bat. From the country’s jersey to the IPL stage, Virat Kohli has failed miserably with the bat everywhere. He has also resigned from all forms of captaincy for the Indian team after 2021. But so far Virat Kohli has failed to return to form.
In the Test match against England, Virat Kohli managed to score only 31 runs in two innings. The former India captain went back for 11 in the first innings. In the second innings, Virat Kohli had to return for 20 runs. Then Virat Kohli was rested in the first T20. Even though he was in the team in the second T20, Virat Kohli could not do anything like that. He failed in two consecutive matches.
Virat Kohli has failed in both the T20s against England:
Since then, criticism of Virat Kohli’s performance has become louder. However, Sunil Gavaskar does not want to go down that road now. He is rather optimistic about Virat Kohli. The former cricketer said, “I don’t understand why no one is talking about Rohit Sharma. There is a saying that form is temporary and class is permanent. In this T20 era, they have to play offensive cricket from the first ball. It can lead to success or failure. “
For several days now, the former stars have been talking about Virat Kohli’s performance. Especially a few days ago, Kapil Dev opened his mouth about Virat Kohli’s performance. He didn’t even hesitate to talk about putting him out of the T20 squad. Not only Kapil Dev, but other former cricketers have also voiced their criticism of Virat.
At that time Sunal Gavaskar was standing next to Virat Kohli. He feels that there is no need to think about the T20 World Cup squad right now. Besides, according to Gavaskar, Virat Kohli is still a regular member of the Indian team for the World Cup.
