Sourav Ganguly, the President of the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) has talked about India’s key player, Virat Kohli, whose form has been questionable over a few years. Despite not getting a chance to score his 71st international century, Kohli has been struggling whilst scoring good runs.
The BCCI has named an 18-player squad for the upcoming T20I series versus the West Indies starting on July 29. However, many are not amazed to see Kohli rested as narrated by the board. It is doubtful if he really has been rested or dropped, diminishing his chances in BCCI’s future plans.
Kohli’s career, defining if or not he has a chance, will get a clear stance once the BCCI names the Asia Cup 2022 squad. The ACC event is scheduled to take place in Sri Lanka starting in August 2022. Ganguly, speaking on Kohli’s suffering form, has stated that every star goes through a crucially suffering stage.
He understands the ex-captain will get back to the track in a shorter while as he is aware of the circumstances. Ganguly, despite his former war with the player regarding captaincy, believes Kohli will bounce back even stronger. However, fans have a strong feeling that Kohli’s lean patch might see him bidding farewell to the game soon.
Ganguly’s statements read,
“Yes, he has had a tough time and he knows that,” Ganguly told ANI. “He himself knows by his own standards it has not been good and I see him coming back and doing well. But he has got to find his way and become successful, which he has been for the last 12-13 years or more and only Virat Kohli can do that.
“These things will happen in sport. It has happened to everybody. It has happened to Sachin [Tendulkar], it has happened to Rahul [Dravid], it has happened to me, it has happened to Kohli. It is going to happen to future players. That’s part and parcel of sport and I think as a sportsman you just need to listen, be aware of what it is, and just go and play your game.”
Since the above-written statements come directly from BCCI’s president, it is certain that the board is considering Kohli for future events, giving him a chance to get over the performance trauma. It must be noted the former Indian skipper will not be in action for a month.
