Ricky Ponting, who used to play for Australia and was the captain when they won the World Cup, has talked about Virat Kohli’s recent form and said that he should be kept on the international scene. Since a long time ago, it’s been hard for the right-handed batter to score runs.
Kohli also did not do well on the India tour of England, which just ended. The Indian batter had a few good starts, but he did not capitalise on them. In the last two T20Is, he only got 12 runs. Kohli will not play in the upcoming white-ball tour against the West Indies.
Kohli had trouble scoring runs for his Royal Challengers Bangalore team in the Indian Premier League (IPL). Ponting has said that Kohli should stay with the Men in Blue for the T20 World Cup in Australia in 2022. Team India, which is led by Rohit Sharma, would be excited to win its second T20 World Cup.
Ricky Ponting talks about Virat Kohli
“I think that if I were an opposing captain or player, I would be more afraid of playing an Indian team with Virat Kohli than one without him,” Ponting said during an ICC review.
“I know that he has had some problems and that it has been hard for him. But every great player I’ve seen in this game, whether they’re a batsman or a bowler, has been through it at some point. The best players always find a way to bounce back and answer, and it’s only a matter of time before Virat does the same,” he said.
Kohli has played 99 T20Is and scored 3308 runs. He has a great average of above 50. He has scored 94 runs, which is the most he has ever done, and he has won many games for India with memorable innings.
