Kohli ‘played’ a lot with the ball, now she is playing with him, a bowler told Virat’s trouble
Kohli is having a bad time
Singh told India TV, “He has a bad timing. The way he is getting out, the way he is getting out, it is strange. We have never seen Virat like this. It is a very bad patch. And Virat is taking time to come out of that too. In ODIs and Tests, you can use the balls and come back to form slowly. In T20s, you don’t have that leeway.”
Kohli dominated for a long time
Despite the poor batting, Kohli is still an important member of the team as his presence on the field has helped the Indian team a lot. He relinquished the captaincy of India in all formats to take the extra pressure off, but that didn’t work either. RP said that this poor form of Virat has come after possessing the ball for a long time, now it is taking the same amount of time to go. That is, as much as Kohli ‘played’ with the ball, he is playing with the ball.
Now it’s taking the same time to return
RP Singh said, “If you have to get in form, you can start by scoring 60 runs off 50-55 balls. You can’t expect to score 100 runs in 55 balls. You have to spend time and take singles and doubles.” It is not easy to come back in form as he was dominating for years, now it is taking the same time to come back. Virat himself must be thinking that ‘I used to dominate but now whenever the ball touches the bat’ get out’. He took the right approach but the format is wrong.”
Kohli to return for England tour
Let us tell you, Virat Kohli was seen batting slow to find form in the IPL. But because of the T20 format, that batting of Kohli also got a lot of criticism.
Kohli has been given a short break along with seniors like Rohit Sharma and Jasprit Bumrah. For the time being, they have survived T20 but the thing is that this year T20 World Cup is also to be held. Indian captain Rohit was also not impressive in this year’s IPL. Their performances declined and five-time champions Mumbai Indians had their worst ever performance in the IPL, finishing at the bottom of the points table.
Kohli, Rohit and Bumrah will return for the England tour. India will travel to the UK for a Test match, which was rescheduled last year after being postponed due to Covid-19, followed by three ODIs and as many T20Is.
