Undoubtedly, the Indian cricket team will try to continue its winning streak against West Indies after defeating England in the T20I and ODI series. India will play 3 ODIs and 5 T20Is on the West Indies tour starting from 22nd July and the former skipper Virat Kohli has been rested for this tour.
Virat Kohli has played many match-winning performances for the country and has broken many records as well but he is going through a lean phase for quite a long time as he hasn’t scored a century across any format since 2019 and in the recently concluded India vs England series, he touched the new low. India played the fifth rescheduled test match against England at Edgbaston which the hosts won in a grand manner, fans hoped that Kohli’s century drought would end in this test match but he disappointed once again with his game and even got criticized for his aggressive attitude on the field.
He performed poorly in the T20Is and ODIs too and it was the first time that he was not able to touch even the 20-run mark in consecutive five innings and scored just 70 odd runs on the tour.
Virat Kohli is now on the radar of many former cricketers who are questioning his place in the team especially when there are a good number of in-form youngsters waiting for a chance to play for the country. Many former cricketers have demanded that the former RCB skipper should go back to domestic cricket, score runs and then he should be considered for the selection in the Indian team. However, the skipper Rohit Sharma and coach Rahul Dravid along with the BCCI President Sourav Ganguly have supported Virat Kohli and made it clear that the former RCB skipper will stay in the team.
Virat Kohli is one of the most famous sportspersons of the world so it is quite obvious that he is signed by many brands for endorsements. Recently, he posted a commercial of a health supplements company on his social media accounts which was not liked by his fans. The Indian Twitterati was pretty upset with the fact that on one hand Virat Kohli is not able to score runs but on other, he is busy doing endorsements instead of practicing and focusing on his game.
Here is the endorsement:
#WeAreWellman and we don’t let the pressures of the game change us, we change the game instead.
