The Indian cricketer Virat Kohli has been making headlines in the recent past because of his captaincy saga and many of his fans believe that he has been unfairly treated by the Board of Control for Cricket in India. Virat Kohli gave up his T20 captaincy after the dismissal performance of team India in the ICC T20 World Cup 2020 citing workload issues but then he was removed from the ODI captaincy too and recently, he gave up his test captaincy as well after India lost the 3-match test series to South Africa by 2-1.
Now, the Indian cricket fans and former Indian cricketers including Reetinder Singh Sodhi want the Indian cricketer to bat superbly and make big scores in the upcoming ODI and T20I series against West Indies starting 6th Feb. While expressing his opinion during a discussion, Reetinder Singh Sodhi states that Virat Kohli has gone through many things in the recent past but what is more important is that he bats well and dominates the opposition as he used to do in the past.
Sodhi said that just some time ago, he used to lead the Indian cricket team in all the three formats but now he is not a captain in any format, so a lot has happened with him in the recent past but the now whole nation wants to see the champion batsman on the field. Sodhi states that many important tournaments including the World Cup will come up in the near future and it is quite important for the team and Virat Kohli that he bats well and makes big scores. Sodhi adds that a champion player never focuses on making records and always competes with himself but what will happen to the opposition if Virat Kohli decides to break his own records.
In the last ODI series against South Africa, Virat Kohli scored two half-centuries and he was the fifth highest run scorer in the series too, however many fans were left disappointed as they wanted to see him scoring a century. It has been almost 2 years that Virat Kohli has scored a century in any format of the game and the series against West Indies will be a great opportunity for him to end his century drought.
