How Sachin Can Help Virat Kohli to Find his Form Back: Virat Kohli who was once considered one of the greatest batters now struggles to score runs in international matches. Former Indian captain Virat Kohli who fails to reach the three-digit mark since 2019 struggles to find his form back.
Kohli is expected to make his comeback in the recently concluded IPL. But the so-called run machine just scored 341 runs in 16 matches he played and bagged just 2 half-centuries in the last season.
How Sachin Can Help Virat Kohli to Find his Form Back
Following his poor performance in IPL 2022, BCCI rested him for the home series against South Africa and even rested Kohli for the Ireland series and expected him to find his mojo in the break. But the 33-year-old scatters the expectation and went on to continue his bad form in England vs India’s fifth Test match at Edgbaston.
Following his Test performance, Kohli failed to showcase his skills in the T20I series and even scored just 16 runs in the second ODI where India lost the match by 100 runs. With T20 World Cup just a few months away, BCCI decides to rest Virat Kohli from the entire India tour of West Indies 2022.
The unexpected move from BCCI raised the eyebrow of many cricket experts and many started to question the intention behind it. READ: Virat Kohli Explains How Sachin Tendulkar helps him to Battle Depression
In this situation, former Indian cricketer Ajay Jadeja throws weight on the topic and recalled that he had seeked an intervention from Sachin Tendulkar on the matter, as he would be the only person in the world to understand what Kohli was going through.
“I said this 8 months ago when we were talking about this. I said the only man who can relate to what Virat Kohli is going through is Tendulkar. The only man who he should give a call and say, ‘let’s have a drink together. Have a nice meal’.
Because who else, since starting at age 14 or 15, never had a bad patch? Only moved forward, and reached the heights Tendulkar had reached?” Jadeja said on Sony SIX. READ: Virat Kohli Reveals the Reason For Lifting Sachin Tendulkar After Winning World Cup 2011
“So, I can’t think of anyone else, because I believe that everything is in the mind. So, he is a call away from Tendulkar. I hope even if Virat doesn’t call… it’s actually Sachin who should give him a call. Sometimes, young people are in that phase. When you are older, since you have been through that, it’s your duty to make that call. I hope Master does that,” Jadeja said.
India will play the final and decider match of the ODI series against England on July 17 in Emirates Old Trafford, Manchester.
