There is no shortage of Kohli’s strong presence on social media
Kohli’s strong presence on social media hasn’t waned, even though his on-field performance has taken a toll on him. Virat is going through a rough patch as a batsman and as a player he has seen his downfall in the last one year. Kohli stepped down as T20I captain after the ICC T20 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates last year. India were eliminated after an embarrassing performance in that event.

Virat is currently on rest
The Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) then removed Kohli from the post of ODI captain and handed it over to Rohit Sharma. Kohli also relinquished Test captaincy after India’s three-Test series loss in South Africa. BCCI appointed Rohit as the new Test captain.
India are set to play South Africa for five T20Is between June 9-19. But both Kohli and Rohit are among the players who have been rested after the conclusion of IPL 2022.
Waiting for Kohli to tour England
Kohli could not do anything special in the IPL as well. Batting with an average of 22.73, he appeared slow and could only manage 341 runs. Kohli’s wait is touring England where Team India has to play the remaining fifth Test match of last year before the T20 and ODI series.
