Sourav Ganguly talks about out of form Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma

The president of the Board of Control of Cricket in India (BCCI) has been in the cricket world’s headlines today for making his comments on out of form Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. Undoubtedly, the mentioned two batters have always proved themselves as the biggest assets for the Indian Cricket team. However, the suffering forms have raised many questions in regard.

Seeing Kohli and Sharma badly struggling to score in the 15th season of the Indian Premier League (IPL 2022), Ganguly has said that he does not worry about the icons, since they are key players and backbone of the teams.

In fact, Ganguly is optimistic about the returns of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma and says that they will bounce back stronger ahead of the T20 World Cup 2022, scheduled in Australia. Talking to a source, he narrated,

“I’m not worried at all about the form of Rohit or Virat. They are too good…real big players. The World Cup is far away and I am quite confident that they will be in top shape much before the tournament,” 

Notably, Kohli’s form has been questionable for the last two years. The underpressure lad gave his captaincy amidst all the drama that you can find here. Even after giving up the leadership of IPL and the Indian national team, he is yet to perform on the field. So far, he has 236 runs at 19.67 with a strike rate of 113.46 in 13 games this season.

Sharma was appointed as the captain of all formats as his successor. It has not been much time since he stepped in Kohli’s boots, hence, captaincy’s burden cannot be blamed. As far as his IPL 2022 stats so far are concerned, he has 218 runs in 12 games at an average of 18.17 and a strike rate of 125.29.
