AB de Villiers on Virat Kohli: Virat Kohli is currently unable to return to his old rhythm. He definitely scored a half-century in the last match but it was very slow. He played an innings of 58 runs off 53 balls. However, cricket experts believe that this innings will boost his confidence. Former cricketer AB de Villiers, who was with Virat for a long time in RCB, has also spoken on Virat’s struggle regarding his form. He has linked the poor form of Virat Kohli to the mindset.
De Villiers says, ‘It is a battle of mind and mental strength. You don’t suddenly become a bad player overnight. I know this and Virat would also know this. It all depends on your mind set and thinking. Whenever you play, you need a calm mind and fresh energy, then only you can come out of this pit.
De Villiers also says that a batsman is always one or two bad innings away from losing his momentum. If he keeps on playing such bad innings then it becomes very difficult for him to come back.
Let us tell you that Virat Kohli has not been able to score a century even once in more than 100 matches in all formats of cricket. Even in this season of IPL, Virat has not been able to perform anything special so far. In 10 matches, he has been able to score 186 runs at an average of just 20.67. In this, he has also been out on zero twice in a row. It will be a matter to be seen that after scoring a half-century in the last match, the signs given by Virat to return to the rhythm, prove to be true in the coming matches.
