Renowned Indian cricketer Virat Kohli‘s performance in the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024 has raised eyebrows, with concerns over his lackluster show on the pitch. Despite his excellent form in the IPL 2024 season, Kohli has yet to excel in the world tournament.

On Thursday, during the semi-final match against England, Kohli’s early dismissal by Reece Topley in the 3rd over highlighted his struggles. Throughout the World Cup, Kohli has managed merely 75 runs in 7 matches at a modest average of around 11.

In a recent interview with Star Sports, former India coach Ravi Shastri dissected Kohli’s gameplay, emphasizing that the batter may be going for aggressive shots too prematurely, disrupting his natural rhythm and leading to dismissals.

Shastri remarked, ‘This is not his game. He is going too early for it, especially with Rohit Sharma playing aggressively at the other end. He can make up quite easily once he spends a little more time at the crease. He is more orthodox. And he is going to play in that fashion.’

Addressing Kohli’s approach, Shastri highlighted the importance of patience and suggested that the seasoned cricketer should focus on staying in sync with his rhythm to deliver his best performance. While Kohli’s aggressive intent is laudable, Shastri noted that it might be crucial for Kohli to adopt a more measured approach tailored to his traditional strengths.
