After international cricket, Virat Kohli is also unable to score runs in this year’s IPL. So far this IPL season, he has been able to score 128 runs in 9 matches with an average of only 16 runs. During this time, his strike rate has also been capped at 119.62. This season he has been sent off for zero twice in a row. His scores over the last five innings have been 1, 12, 0, 0 and 9. Even in the 9 runs he scored in the last game, he was barely able to touch the bat with the ball. It took him 10 balls to score 9 runs and in this he also survived going out 3 times. In general, Virat is going through the worst stage of his career.
From Sunil Gavaskar to Ravi Shastri and Yuvraj Singh, many former cricketers and pundits have spoken about Virat Kohli’s poor form. Now BCCI President Sourav Ganguly has also joined this list. On the fact that Virat did not score runs, he has said: ‘I don’t know what is going on in Virat’s mind. But I’m sure he’ll get the momentum back from him and score good runs. He is a great player.
Along with this, Ganguly also talked about Rohit Sharma. Rohit Sharma has also been able to score 153 runs in 8 matches this IPL with an average of just 19.13. Rohit’s strike rate has also been capped at 126.44. Ganguly says of the poor form of these two legends: ‘They (Rohit and Virat) are great players and I am sure they will both find their rhythm. Hopefully runs will come out of his bat soon.
