T20 World Cup: Virat Kohli's Struggles Raise Concerns For Team India

Former Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar has lent his support to star batter Virat Kohli amidst his challenging start in the ICC T20 World Cup campaign. Gavaskar emphasized the importance of maintaining faith in Kohli’s abilities, urging both fans and the player himself to remain patient and trust in his talent.

Gavaskar acknowledged Kohli’s recent string of low scores in the tournament but highlighted that this doesn’t indicate a loss of form. He suggested that Kohli might have fallen victim to some good deliveries and emphasized the need to trust in his resilience and ability to bounce back.

Despite Kohli’s initial struggles, Gavaskar expressed confidence in the batsman’s capacity to deliver, particularly given his track record of winning matches for India over the years. He encouraged Kohli to maintain his patience and self-belief, emphasizing the long road ahead in the tournament and the opportunities for redemption in the Super Eights and knockout stages.

Reflecting on Kohli’s stellar performance in the recent Indian Premier League (IPL) season, where he excelled for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB), Gavaskar highlighted Kohli’s exceptional form and aggressive approach against spinners. However, he acknowledged that this strategy has not translated as effectively in the challenging conditions of the Nassau County International Stadium in New York.

As India prepares for their upcoming T20 World Cup match against Canada, Gavaskar reiterated the significance of Kohli’s role in the team’s journey, emphasizing the need for patience and perseverance as they progress in the tournament.
