Indian skipper Virat Kohli is going through a phase of his career when is he not in the best of form. He has scored an international century back in September 2019 and since two years has gone without scoring a three-figure score. In the recent Test series against England Kohli scored two fifties and showed glimpses of coming back into form.

He will turn up for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL in a bid to get back his lost form and get ready for the T20 World Cup later this year. Meanwhile, former Indian skipper Kapil Dev has backed the Indian skipper to get back into form quickly.

“For all these years, when he was scoring runs, no one said anything about captaincy affecting Virat’s batting and now suddenly, there are opinions when there’s been a little up and down in his graph. When he scored those double centuries and so many hundreds, wasn’t there pressure then? It means that his captaincy should not be the focus. Instead, look at his ability,” Kapil said on the show Uncut.

Kapil Dev further said that Virat Kohli can even score 300 for the team once he gets back his old form. Kohli has already struck seven double tons in the longest format of the game.

“The graph has surely gone up and down but for how long? Age 28 to 32 is the time when you really blossom. He is now experienced and mature. If he returns to his old form, Virat will not only score a century or double ton; he will give you 300. Kohli is so much mature now and there is no shortage of fitness when it comes to Kohli. He just needs to identify himself and look to score big,” Kapil added.

As captain, Kohli has scored over 5500 runs in 65 Tests with 20 centuries and 17 fifties, while in ODIs, the India skipper has hit 21 hundreds and 27 half-centuries, scoring almost 5500 runs from 95 matches.
