The former India batting coach said: “The biggest thing for me is that Virat Kohli would have been relieved subconsciously because when you are unable to perform at that level, then doubts start creeping into your mind and those doubts force you to make mistakes in the middle. The coming phase for Virat Kohli will be better because the one who was sitting on his shoulders, who was putting the doubts in his mind, all those doubts would have been cleared.”

Asia Cup 2022: Virat Kohli is likely to keep his form intact

However, Virat Kohli scored his maiden T20I century in India’s final Asia Cup game against Afghanistan. He smashed an unbeaten 122-run knockoff 61 deliveries which is also the highest individual score by an Indian in the shortest format in international cricket as well. And, with this, he put an end to his century drought as well.

“The period that was going on for the last two to two-and-a-half years where he was not crossing the landmark, he made quite a few good contributions for the team during that period, but the standard and expectations had gone so high. Every big player, whether you talk about Rahul Dravid or Sachin Tendulkar, their careers also had such phases where they did not score centuries but they were contributing,” he concluded.

However, Virat Kohli scored 81 runs at a low average of 20.25 in the four T20I innings he played this year before the Asia Cup and did not contribute much too. Notably, the recent century against Afghanistan was his first international century since the pink-ball Test against Bangladesh in November 2019 as well.
