New Delhi: The 33-year-old former captain of the Indian team, Virat Kohli, has been upset with him for the last two years. The situation is where the opposition bowlers used to shy away from coming in front of them. King Kohli himself is now struggling to score runs in front of those bowlers. Disappointed by Kohli’s consistent poor performance, many people have started questioning him. Recently, former captain Kapil Dev shared his view and said that if a talented player like Ravichandran Ashwin can be out of the playing XI of the Test team, then the form for a long time. Why can’t Virat Kohli, who is battling for it, be dropped from the T20 team?
This statement given by the former Indian captain was also shared by the ICC from its official Twitter account. Commenting on this tweet shared by the ICC, now 35-year-old veteran batsman Usman Khawaja of the Australian team has shared his views. Commenting sarcastically, he wrote that if Kohli is out of the T20 team, then Australia will welcome the decision of the Indian team management. The Australian cricketer tweeted, ‘Average 50 and strike rate 140, good decision, and Australia agrees.’
Captain Rohit Sharma supported Kohli:
Kohli’s dismal performance continued in the recently concluded T20 series against England. He took part in the second and third matches of the series. During this, he failed to do some special charisma in both the matches. However, even in the midst of Kohli’s poor performance, team captain Rohit Sharma has supported him. He says that the team management has always been backing quality players. The team will continue to support Kohli as well.
The Indian captain said in an open tongue that we do not pay attention to what is happening outside. I don’t know what an expert is but Kohli is a quality player and the form keeps coming and going.
