Similar to how captain Rohit Sharma strongly refuted all inquiries on Virat Kohli’s protracted rough spell, his deputy KL Rahul did likewise, giving the blatantly clear template response that it is all “noise on the outside.” One of India’s greatest batters of all time, Kohli’s recent struggles have led some to question whether or not the balance of the team is being harmed by his inclusion in the starting XI for T20 Internationals.
“Such comments are not actually given much weight in our opinion. What people are saying (on the outside) doesn’t really effect a player, especially a world-class player like Virat, “Rahul echoed what Kohli used to say when something particularly negative was questioned, and the current captain Rohit says the same thing when asked about his predecessor.
He said, “He has taken a little sabbatical and is concentrating on his game.”
While Rahul doesn’t see anything wrong with Kohli’s batting, he feels that the incredible run he had for a good seven to eight years may have left people wanting more. Kohli hasn’t made an international hundred in almost three years.
“I saw him play when I was wounded and at home for two months, and it didn’t feel like he was out of shape.” “Perhaps he hasn’t reached that level yet because of the expectations he has set for himself. But I have no doubt that he is driven to succeed for his nation. He has consistently performed that throughout his career ” He added.
