Since November of this year, Virat Kohli hasn’t made a century in international cricket.
Virat Kohli hasn’t made a century in international cricket since November 2019. After a poor run in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022. Legendary India skipper Mohammad Azharuddin, on the other hand, has bolstered the star batter’s confidence, saying that all he needs is one big score to reclaim his confidence. He also added that given the high bar Kohli has set for himself in the past with his accomplishments, even a half-century with the bat is considered a poor showing.
“What happens with Virat Kohli is that even if he hits a 50, people think he failed,” Azharuddin was quoted by the Khaleej Times as saying to reporters in Dubai.
“I feel this has happened to every cricketer. Even the best players have had to contend with dry spells.’ ‘Then he continued,’ he remarked.
“There’s nothing wrong with his strategy. “You might need a little bit of luck now and then,” Azharuddin said.
“The aggression and the confidence will return if he makes one big score, a big hundred,” he predicted.
Virat Kohli will miss India’s next five-match T20I series against South Africa but will return in July for a one-off Test against England.
Kohli had a strike rate of 115.99 and scored 341 runs in 16 matches in IPL 2022. He scored just two half-centuries and failed to fire in the play-offs as Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) were knocked out in Qualifier 2 by Rajasthan Royals.
