Virat Kohli ruled the cricketing world in the last decade. He was also the “ICC Cricketer of Decade” for 2010s decade. There is no batting record book where Virat Kohli doesn’t have his name registered. Kohli averages almost 50 in Test and T20I and around 58 in One Day Internationals (ODI)
However the last 2 years haven’t gone right for this champion player. Virat Kohli has failed to create his impact on this field. Former Indian captain hasn’t scored a century since November, 2019 in international cricket. Batting average of Virat in each format has gone downhill since last 2 years.
Virat Kohli posted a social media post amid the criticism which he has been facing for his form. Virat Kohli shared a picture of a motivational quote with the caption “Perspective“. The quote said , “What if I fall? Oh, but darling, what if you fly?”. It has given a new ray of hope for fans of Virat Kohli across the world.

Several cricket fans and experts even want Virat to be dropped from the Indian team. Fans want selectors to give chances to Youngster in place of Virat. However, Pakistan skipper Babar Azam has come in support of Virat Kohli during this tough phase.
“Needs only 1 or 2 innings”- Rohit Sharma backs Virat Kohli
Virat Kohli has failed to score even a single fifty plus score on this England tour. He scored 31 runs in two innings of the test match he played. Kohli managed to score just 12 runs in the 2 T20I matches he played and 16 runs in the second ODI against England at Lords. However, Indian captain Rohit Sharma has come in defence of Virat Kohli.
Rohit Sharma has backed Kohli to come back in form. Rohit said: “He has played so many matches for so many years. He has been such a great batsman so he does not need reassurance. That is part and parcel of all the players’ career. This happens with everyone. So a player who has won so many matches, needs only 1 or 2 innings. This is what I believe and I am sure rest feel the same way.”
