Former Australia captain Ricky Pointing defends Virat Kohli
Australian legendary captain made a statement in support of Virat Kohli, who did not perform well in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy 2023. Kohli is considered one of the best players in Test cricket; however, it has been over three years since he has scored a ton.
“For Kohli, I have said that over and over, champion players always find a way. He might be in a bit of a drought at the moment, might be not scoring runs which we all expect him to score but he is a realist as well. When you are a batsman and your are struggling and not scoring runs, you are pretty aware of that yourself. I am not concerned about this because I am confident he will bounce back,” Ricky Pointing said on ICC Review.
In the first three tests, Kohli has just scored 111 runs against Australia in the ongoing Border-Gavaskar Trophy. The Australian former captain is confident that Kohli will be back to his form very soon.
“I am not looking at anybody’s form in the series because for batters it has been an absolute nightmare. Australia have done a remarkable job by turning around those first two Test matches and coming back to win the third. We all know batting has been so incredibly difficult,” he added.
