Virat Kohli looks in bad shape in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy that is being played these days. In the second inning of the third game of the series being played in Indore, Kohli returned to the arena after scoring just 13 runs. Kohli has been running poorly in Test cricket for a long time. Far from a century, not even half a century has come out of the bat from him for a long time. In such a situation, his form is becoming a matter of concern for the Indian team.
Talking about Kohli’s last 10 Test innings, he scored a match-high 44 runs and couldn’t even cross the 30 mark in the remaining 9 innings. In the last 10 Test innings, Kohli has scored 20, 1, 19*, 24, 1, 12, 44, 20, 22 and 13 runs. The first half century came from his bat 15 innings, which he scored against South Africa in Cape Town on January 11, 2022.
At the same time, Kohli scored his final Test century on 22 November 2019 against Bangladesh at Eden Gardens. In that match, he scored an innings of 136 runs aided by 18 fours. Apart from this, his test average has also been very low since 2019. Kohli’s test average is 19.33 in 2020, 28.21 in 2021, 26.50 in 2022 and 22.20 in 2023 so far. All these Kohli figures are gradually becoming a cause for concern for the team.
Kohli has played a total of 106 Tests, 271 ODIs and 115 T20 Internationals in his international career so far. He has scored 8,195 runs in Tests, 12,809 runs in ODIs and 4,008 runs in T20 Internationals. Kohli has scored a total of 74 centuries and 129 half centuries in all three formats.
