Virat Kohli’s Recent Form

Following the ICC T20 World Cup in the UAE last year, Kohli opted to retire as a T20I captain. India’s performance at the showcase event was poor, as they were out on the group stage.

Kohli was then replaced as ODI captain by Rohit Sharma, as directed by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI). Following India’s three-match series defeat in South Africa, Kohli also resigned as Test captain. Rohit Sharma has been selected as the new Test captain by the BCCI. Kohli has rested for India’s next T20I series against South Africa after struggling in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022.

Virat Kohli scored 341 runs in 16 games in IPL 2022, with a strike rate of 115.98 and an average of 22.73. He’ll next join the team for the delayed fifth Test of last year’s series against England.

Before the fifth match was called off due to a Covid outbreak in the visitors’ camp, India had established a 2-1 lead in the series. From June 9 to June 19, India will host South Africa for five Twenty20 Internationals. Following the conclusion of the IPL 2022, Kohli and Rohit will be among the players who will be offered time off.
