With the preparations for the Border Gavaskar Trophy in full flow, team India will be depending on a lot of star players to drive them towards yet another series win against Australia. The form of Virat Kohli is going to be crucial for India if they are looking to get anything from this series.
Legendary Indian spinner Harbhajan Singh recently came forward to talk about the same. The 42-year-old opined about the upcoming Test series between India and Australia and stressed the importance of Kohli’s form and how crucial it will be for the team.
"I think this is the series where Virat Kohli's bat will speak vociferously. When he starts going, we know he won't stop. If India wants to play well in this series, then the run machine will have to take the onus and score big runs. Just forget what happened in the past. Whatever the fault was in the technique, it has now been left behind. Everything is ok, and Virat Kohli is back in form," Harbhajan said in a video on his YouTube channel.
Harbhajan also backed Kohli to take India to the WTC final
Kohli, widely regarded as one of the greatest batters of all time, appears to have rediscovered his old form, with four international centuries since September 2022. However, he is yet to break his century drought in Test cricket, and the upcoming series against Australia could be the perfect opportunity for him.
Team India will be looking to make their way into the final of the ICC World Test Championship when they meet in Nagpur on February 9 in the first Test, and Singh believes Kohli's form will be crucial if the team wants any chance of reaching the WTC final.
"I hope that when a player of Virat Kohli's stature returns to form, they do win their team's matches. This is the time to take your team to the WTC final. Virat Kohli is the kind of player who deserves more praise than he gets. He has scored so many runs (over the years), so when he comes out to bat, we expect him to score no less than 100 runs. We consider his form based on this," Harbhajan added.
