Sourav Ganguly spoke about Virats form returning in Asia Cup
Virat Kohli has been struggling with his batting form for a long time now. While a century has been eluding the player since November 2019, the ongoing year has seen the former India skipper struggle for even half-centuries.
Virat Kohlis form is very much discussed these days. It is almost 3 years since his last century came off the bat. The tour against England was also nothing special for him. Kohli, who was away from the West Indies and Zimbabwe series, scored 33 runs in two ODIs, 31 in both innings of the only Test match and only 1 and 11 runs in T20Is on the tour of England.BCCI President Saurav Gangulys reaction on Kohlis Form
BCCI president Sourav Ganguly is hopeful that the right-handed batter will make a comeback in the upcoming Asia Cup that kicks off on August 27. India start their campaign in the continental tournament on the very next day with a match against Pakistan at the Dubai International Stadium. "Let him practice, let him play matches. He is a big player and has scored plenty of runs. I am hopeful that he will make a comeback. He is just not being able to score a century and I believe he will find his form in the Asia Cup," Ganguly was quoted as saying in an interview.Asia Cup will be a Platform for Kohli for Upcoming Worldcup
Virat Kohlis most recent international knock came against England in July this year before the player missed out the white-ball series against West Indies that included three ODIs and five T20Is. The player is also not available in Indias upcoming three-match ODI series against Zimbabwe, starting August 18 in Harare. Kohli has been named in Indias Asia Cup squad though.
Pakistan spinner Danish Kaneria had opined that Kohli will have to perform in the upcoming Asia Cup if he wants to be a part of Indias T20 World Cup squad. While Kohli has been one of the most consistent players in the last decade, his recent slump in form has raised doubts over his place in the Indian team. Kaneria said that Kohli has the full backing of skipper Rohit Sharma and head coach Rahul Dravid and the star batter will have to repay the trust shown to him by the management.
