Virat Kohli, star of Royal Challengers Bangalore, was in focus for his poor form in the 2022 Indian Premier League (IPL) season. Despite getting two scores early in the season in the 1940s, he has struggling to score points. With two ducks and a score of 9 in his last three innings, he was advised by some pundits and ex-cricketers, including former Team India head coach Ravi Shastri, to take a break to rejuvenate himself. However, former India opener Aakash Chopra thinks Kohli should keep playing to find his form and asked if if he stops playing, “how will he score points?”
During a question-and-answer session on his YouTube channel, Chopra said: “Tough question. Everyone comes up with their own theory. It’s not like Virat hasn’t had a rest. Obviously, he’s not off the game for three to three.” four months, but lately he has skipped several matches in different formats.”
“If he stops playing, how does he score points? To win a fight, you have to fight it out in the middle. You have to fall, get up and run again,” he said.
“There was a six-month COVID break. Has anything changed? Personally, I think he should keep playing,” he concluded.
Even before this season, Kohli was not in the form he usually shows. He hasn’t scored a century in international cricket or the IPL since the day-night test against Bangladesh at Eden Gardens in November 2019.
RCB will take on table toppers Gujarat Titans next Saturday.
