‘Mujhe lagta hai ke Virat Kohli…’ – Navjot Singh Sidhu on Kohli’s lean run in T20 World Cup 2024 | Cricket News

Eyes will once again be on Virat Kohli, who is yet to strike form in the ongoing T20 World Cup, and India’s ‘Super 8s’ match against Bangladesh on Saturday in Antigua presents another opportunity for the batting legend to stamp his authority.
In the first phase of the tournament, Kohli’s knocks in three group matches read 1, 4 and 0, while in India’s first match of the ‘Super 8s’ stage against Afghanistan, he scored a run-a-ball 24.

“If a powerful person doesn’t showcase his power, then that person does get hurt, and should get hurt,” said former India opener Navjot Singh Sidhu on Star Sports, speaking on the dip in Kohli’s form.
“I will learn only after I fall,” he added. “Mujhe lagta hai Virat Kohli mentally itne strong hain ke woh abhyaas se apni galtiyon pe haavi hona chaahte hain (I feel Kohli is mentally so strong that he wants to overpower his mistakes through training). He wants to overcome those (mistakes).”

The Indian team management has pushed Kohli up a spot up from his usual No. 3 position to partner Rohit Sharma as an opening batsman. However, the move hasn’t worked so far, unlike the prolific run Kohli had enjoyed as an opener for his IPL team Royal Challengers Bengaluru in the season that concluded just before the T20 World Cup.
Kohli was the top-scorer of IPL 2024 with a tally of 741 runs.
Vying for their second T20 World Cup triumph and the first ICC trophy in 11 years, India are so far unbeaten in the tournament, having defeated Ireland, Pakistan and USA in the group stage, followed by their win over Afghanistan in their first match of ‘Super 8s’.
