Virat Kohli made a special record after playing a brilliant inning of 73 runs on 54 balls against Gujarat Titans on Thursday. He has become the first batsman in IPL history to score more than 300 runs in 13 consecutive seasons. Kohli’s current season has been nothing special. He has scored only two half centuries so far in IPL 2022. In the current season, Kohli has scored 309 runs in 14 innings at an average of just 23.77.
This is not the first time that Virat Kohli has been battling bad form. He, too, had to deal with poor form on the England tour in 2014. In a conversation with Star Sports, Kohli told about the England tour. In 10 innings of the 5-match Test series in England, Kohli scored 1, 8, 25, 0, 39, 28, 0, 7, 6 and 20 runs at an average of 13.50. Kohli said that his current form is completely different from 2014.
Kohli said, to be honest, I can’t turn my back on that phase. There was something in England that I had to work on. But today the situation is different. For me it is easy to understand that I am hitting well, sometimes when I have a good rhythm I feel that I am playing well, which was not the case in England. So I had to work on something that would keep me going out over and over again. Not so this time. I know what level my game is at. In international cricket, you cannot reach this stage without facing such conditions and bowlers.
