Virat Kohli’s form has been the hottest topic of discussion in the cricket world lately. The right-handed batter has been far away from his best in the last couple of years as runs have dried up for him. While the 33-year-old has been playing handy knocks every now and then in this period, nothing much can be said about his performance in the ongoing Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022.
At an average of just over 20, Kohli has scored 216 runs in 11 outings so far this season and RCB would want him to get his mojo back sooner than later. With Kohli being one of the finest batters in the modern era, several fans and experts have given their take on his struggles. Veteran Australian and Delhi Capitals opener David Warner was also asked to shed his opinion on the burning topic and he came up with a classic one-liner.
David Warner backs Virat Kohli to make strong comeback
“Have a couple more kids and enjoy love! The form is temporary and the class is permanent so you don’t lose that. It happens to every single player in the world,” Warner told Sports Yaari.
“It doesn’t matter how good a player you are, you’re always going to have these ebbs and flows. Sometimes the ebb is a long way before you get back up there. Stick to the basics,” he added. Notably, Warner himself endured a hard time in the last season’s IPL, wherein he was controversially sacked as Sunrisers Hyderabad captain midway through the competition.
However, he roared back to form and has been doing well in the ongoing tournament, scoring 264 runs in seven outings. Coming back to Kohli, the talismanic batter has been among the runs in his last couple of outings but his strike rate has been an area of concern. While the right-handed batter took 53 balls to score 58 against Gujarat Titans, he made 30 off 33 deliveries against Chennai Super Kings.
