Asia Cup 2022: There has been a lot of noise with regards to Virat Kohli for over two years now, the star Indian batter, who was the blue-eyed boy of the Indian cricketing team now finds himself in a slump that doesn’t seem to end anytime soon. Virat scored his last international 100 in November 2019 and since then, he hasn’t been able to live up to the expectations that he has set for himself and the fans. Kohli had a horror run in the 2022 UK tour where he couldn’t score a total of 100 runs across three formats.
Legends like Kapil Dev and Venkatesh Prasad have asked the team management to look into this issue and send Kohli back to play domestic cricket where he can correct his flaws in silence and come back stronger. On the contrary to this Rohit Sharma has backed Virat and has said that he always prefers quality over quantity. The Indian skipper further added that it is just a matter of one day, and when Virat returns to form he will be an asset to the team. Virat Kohli was rested for the Caribbean trip due to workload issues and he now returns to the Indian setup for the Asia Cup which is like a dress rehearsal for team India ahead of the T20I World Cup which is scheduled to play in Australia later this year. Former Sri Lankan great and the head coach of Mumbai Indians Mahela Jayawardene has weighed on the matter and has said that Kohli will certainly come out of this slump as he has all the tools at his disposal to get through it.
