Virat Kohli has gone through a very inspiring struggle day as he has taken a lot of effort to chase his dream. Though he has had a very supportive family and surroundings from his childhood days. Recently, the coach of the player from childhood Mr. Rajkumar Sharma has given advice to Kohli that he should visit the academy where he has taken lessons from him, and he will guide him to regain the form which Kohli lost from last few days.
The bad phase of Virat Kohli is not taking the name of the end. It has been 28 months since he scored a century in international cricket. Recently his Test average also dropped below 50.
Recently, the 2-Test series against Sri Lanka has been concluded. In this, Virat Kohlicould not even score a half-century. After this poor performance, for the first time in the last 5 years, his Test average fell below 50. The way Kohli is struggling to play big innings, his childhood coach Rajkumar Sharma is not liking it. He said that the time has come that Kohli should return to the academy and work on the basics of batting again.
In a conversation with a YouTube channel named Khelneeti, Rajkumar Sharma said, Virat Kohli will have to return to the basics. I would like him to come to the academy. I have been thinking about this since yesterday. Now I will talk to Virat about this. The confidence that Kohli gets in the academy is very important for him at the moment.
Kohli not batting freely: Rajkumar Sharma
Virat Kohli’s childhood coach further said, “He is batting well. But they are taking more precautions than necessary. He should bat freely like he has been doing since the beginning of his career. He said that on a wicket like Bengaluru you have to take a little risk, like ShreyasIyer and Rishabh Pant took.
Kohli struggling against spin bowlers
Childhood coach Rajkumar Sharma has invited Kohli to the academy seems to have merit. In 3 innings of the 2-Test series against Sri Lanka, Kohli scored 81 runs at an average of 27. Kohli was dismissed on all three occasions in the series while playing shots against spin bowlers. Many veterans believe that Kohli is not playing in the line of the ball. He is afraid of being LBW somewhere. Kohli’s last Test century was against Bangladesh in November 2019. Since then he has been out 30 times. Out of this, 11 times he has been victimized by spin bowlers. In the Test series against Sri Lanka too, he was a victim of spin bowler on all three occasions. In such a situation, they have to overcome their weakness soon.
Well, it’s a great thing that the childhood coach of Kohli is getting worried about his performance for the present and future too. Now, we have to see whether the cricketer took his coach’s advice seriously or not. Whatever it will be. We will always hope for the best from Virat Kohli and will wish him all the luck to return in his original form on the field.
