‘This too shall pass. Stay strong’: Babar Azam backs Virat Kohli to come good soon

Virat Kohli, a former captain of India, has been suffering through a protracted slump and hasn’t scored a century since 2019. In the second ODI, which India lost by 100 runs at Lord’s after losing the first one due to a groyne injury, Kohli scored just 16 runs. After scoring 1 and 11 in the T20I series and failing in the postponed fifth Test, the right-hander has now gone 77 consecutive international innings without reaching three figures.

The out-of-form Virat Kohli has received encouragement from Pakistan captain Babar Azam. Virat Kohli, the former captain of India, is having trouble regaining his best form, so Babar came to Twitter to send him a sincere message.

Reece Topley’s 6 for 24 highlighted a strong England bowling effort, which helped the team win the second ODI by 100 runs while holding the Indian top order in check.

The stage, however, seemed perfect for Kohli to snap his century drought as they were chasing a modest 247-point target. The 71st had been delayed for almost three years, and Kohli had seemed in good shape the entire tour. During his 25-ball stint at the crease against England in the second ODI at Lord’s, Virat Kohli appeared to be in his element. He executed three top-drawer drives, an off-drive, an on-drive, and a cover drive, but his tendency to play everything on the front foot led to his demise.

On Sunday at Old Trafford, India will play the final ODI.
