The 33-year-old former skipper Virat Kohli is at the lowest point of his career. Selectors and fans never miss out on any opportunity to criticize Virat.
Gavaskar has come to Kohli’s defence and backed him to come into form.
Gavaskar reckons that Kohli should not be dropped from the team and has four months to get into form.
He stands firm that he is against the rest given to him. Meanwhile, he also took the opportunity to expose the hypocrite experts who never questions Rohit Sharma or any other player’s form and are just after Kohli.
“See, I cannot understand that when Rohit Sharma does not score runs no one talks about it. It is the same with other players as well. There is a saying that form is temporary, class is temperament. See, the kind of template they are adopting (in T20Is) where they have to swing the bat from ball one, you will succeed and fail,” Gavaskar told SportsTak.
Gavaskar opined that ODIs are the best way for Kohli to come back into form. He added, ” I think the ODI series has come at the right time. It suits his natural game. Like in Test cricket, there is enough time to settle down. In ODI cricket too the batter can play himself according to the conditions.”
Although, inclusion of Kohli is doubtful for the 1st ODI against England due to a groin problem.
