There were various statements made regarding his gameplay and his retirement but Virat Kohli came back stronger than ever. Now, ex-Indian selector Saba Karim has reacted to the player’s statement regarding his comeback.

After hitting 2 consecutive centuries, one at the end of 2022 and now at the start of 2023, Virat Kohli was given player of the match. The former Indian captain was asked how he pushed himself out of the lean patch.

Virat Kohli is the biggest threat for Sri Lanka: Saba Karim

Virat Kohli during 1st Ind vs SL ODI

In conversation with India News, Saba Karim was asked to comment on Virat Kohli’s philosophical outlook towards cricket. “Virat Kohli has realized that there will be ups and downs in the game, just like life. No matter how much you fight, it is to no avail. You have to accept some things and prepare (for it) as well. The best quality of Kohli, according to me, is that irrespective of good or bad form, he has never cut down on hard work. His attitude and passion towards wanting to win has never changed. Kohli is the biggest threat for Sri Lanka in this series. Apart from his form, he has also got back clarity in his batting,” he said.

Kohli’s 113-run knock helped India register victory over Sri Lanka in the first ODI. Moreover, apart from Virat Kohli, it was the openers Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma that stood up to the occasion. India is currently playing Sri Lanka at Eden Gardens, Kolkata. The Sri Lankan side has been wrapped up for a score of 215. Mohammad Siraj and Kuldeep Yadav have picked up 3 wickets each. Sri Lanka had won the toss and decided to bat first.
