Former Indian cricketer Mohammad Azharuddin predicts when struggling Virat Kohli will come back to form.
When Will Virat Kohli Come Back to Form?
Former Indian captain Virat Kohli has become one of the hottest discussing topics among cricket experts. Since November 2019 Virat Kohli struggles to score a century across all three formats and even in the recently concluded IPL 2022, Virat struggles to score runs.
Kohli finished IPL 2022 with just 341 runs at an average of 22.73. Every Indian cricket fan expects Virat Kohli to be back in form before the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 in Australia which is scheduled to kickstart later this year.
Former India captain Mohammad Azharuddin feels Virat Kohli will roar back to form during the England tour.
“When Kohli gets a 50, it seems he has failed, of course, he has not done much this year. Everybody, even the best, goes through a bad phase in their career. Kohli has been playing a lot of cricket and now that he has got a little break, hopefully, he will come back to form in England,” Azhar told GulfNews.
“There is nothing wrong with his technique. Sometimes you also need a little bit of luck. If he gets one big score, a big hundred, the aggression and the confidence will come back,” added Azhar.
Mohammad Azharuddin also praised IPL 2022 winning captain Hardik Pandya and said that a consistently performing Hardik Pandya is an asset to the Indian team.
“He has the ability, he has done well for the Indian team, but because of the injuries, he was not in the team consistently. He has come back now, he is bowling his four overs. How long he will bowl we really don’t know. But we definitely want him to bowl since he is an all-rounder,” he said.
“In the IPL final (against Rajasthan Royals), he completely changed the game; three wickets in four overs, then he scored 34 quick runs. He is a good talent, just needs that consistency.”
