Virat Kohli IND vs ENG: England tour was like a ‘nightmare’ for Virat Kohli, not even 100 runs in 6 innings

Story Highlights

  • England tour was disappointing for Kohli
  • Only 76 runs came off the bat in six innings

Team India’s star batsman Virat Kohli’s form has been so infuriating that he is not even taking the name of coming back. Even in the third ODI against England, Kohli could not do much and the pavilion went on after scoring just 17 runs. Kohli was caught by fast bowler Reece Topley at the hands of wicketkeeper Jos Buttler.

Scored only 76 runs on this tour

Virat Kohli could only score 76 runs in six innings on the tour of England this year. In the first Edgbaston Test match, Kohli contributed a total of 31 runs, including India’s first and second innings. After this, he could only score 1 and 11 runs in two matches of the T20 series. Now Kohli was expected to perform well in the ODI series, but he broke the expectations of the fans. While he went on to score 16 runs at Lord’s, in Manchester he finished the tour with an innings of 17 runs.

No century from 79 innings

It has been more than 950 days for Virat Kohli to score a century in international cricket for India. 33-year-old Virat Kohli scored the last century in international cricket in November 2019. Then he played an innings of 136 runs at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata. Since then Virat Kohli scored 2554 runs in 79 innings of 68 matches, which included 24 half-centuries. During this, his average has been 35.47, which does not match his career average of 53.64. These figures show how much Kohli’s form has declined.

Off-stump has become a weakness

Virat Kohli’s dismissal pattern in the last few years has been quite similar. On many occasions, Kohli has been running on the ball going outside the off-stump. Kohli has scored a lot of runs on such balls, but when the form is bad, the batsman loses the wicket even on a bad ball. Against England where in the second ODI, Kohli was dismissed by fast bowler David Willey on a ball thrown far outside the off-stump. At the same time, in the third ODI too, Kohli continued to walk on the ball thrown around the off-stump.

Will there be any benefit of rest?

Virat Kohli’s tour of England is over. Now he will be on a break for a few days as he has been rested for the T20 and ODI series against West Indies. Such Kohli is likely to return to the cricket field again through the Asia Cup starting at the end of August. It will be interesting to see how soon Kohli returns to form after the break. Looking at the T20 World Cup 2022, it is very important for Kohli to come back in form. It is expected that Kohli will be able to live up to the expectations of crores of Indian fans in the coming days.
