Fans was hopeful that just as English captain Joe Root scored a double century, team India captain Virat Kohli would also play a big innings against England, but Virat Kohli scored just 11 runs in the first innings of the Chennai Test. There are a lot of questions about Virat Kohli‘s form.

Indian skipper Virat Kohli (Virat Kohli) has been yearning to score a century for the past one year.

Kohli was last hit with a century in the day-night Test against Bangladesh in November 2019. Since then, he has not been able to score a century in any format of cricket.

For the past one year, Virat Kohli has been able to score a total of 853 runs in Tests, ODIs and T20. Kohli has scored just 127 runs in the last 7 Test innings, including a half-century.

Former captain Sunil Gavaskar has defended Virat Kohli. According to Gavaskar, Kohli‘s performance under pressure is even better and he will soon play a big innings.

“When you’ve got to bat at number 4, the score stays at 200/2,” Gavaskar told the Star Network. You think it’s easy to bat. He knows now that batting is not easy and he has to concentrate on it,” he said.

“I think he is close to playing a big innings,” Gavaskar said. This was the first time last year that he had not scored a century in any format with his bat.

Earlier, for 7-8 consecutive years, Kohli had seen five-six centuries with his bat. I know cricket was affected by the Corona epidemic last year, but kohli‘s not coming off a century with the bat was quite a rare coincidence. I hope he would like to change it in 2021,” he said.

“I think he is close to playing a big innings,” Gavaskar said. This was the first time last year that he had not scored a century in any format with his bat.
