“I can see him coming back and doing well”: BCCI President Sourav Ganguly backs Virat Kohli to return to form

Xtra Time Web Desk: While several ex-cricketers have been criticising his recent form with the bat, star India batter Virat Kohli found support from none other than former India captain and BCCI President Sourav Ganguly. According to Ganguly, Kohli is too good a batter to bounce back to form.

Kohli has been suffering the worst run of his cricketing career with his last international century coming way back in 2019. The 33-year-old also struggled to make an impact in the rearranged Test and T20I series against England.

In an interview to ANI, BCCI President Sourav Ganguly said, “Of course, look at the numbers he has got in international cricket. That doesn’t happen without ability and quality. Yes, he has had a tough time and he knows that. He has been a great player himself. He himself knows by his own standards it has not been good and I see him coming back and doing well. But he has got to find his way and become successful, which he has been for the last 12-13 years or more and only Virat Kohli can do that.”

Commenting about Kohli’s extended run of poor form, Sourav said, “These things will happen in sport. It has happened to everybody. It has happened to Sachin, It has happened to Rahul, it has happened to me, it has happened to Kohli. It is going to happen to future players. That’s part and parcel of sport and I think as a sportsman you just need to listen, be aware of what it is and just go and play your game.”
