IND vs SL Virat Kohli Form: After defeating West Indies and New Zealand for all four, the Indian youth team under the captaincy of Rohit Sharma also cleared Sri Lanka 3-0 in the 3-match T20I series. This is Team India’s third consecutive clean sweep win in the T20I series. With this, the Indian team has also equaled Afghanistan’s record of 12 consecutive wins in T20 Internationals. On one hand, all the players under the captaincy of Rohit are performing brilliantly. The team’s most experienced batsman and former captain Virat Kohli’s poor form captain Rohit and team management are deeply concerned.
Team management worried about Virat Kohli’s poor form
Former Indian ( Team India ) captain Virat Kohli has had more than 2 years to score a century in international cricket. During this, Virat has scored runs but he has not been able to touch the century figures. But, if we look at his performance in the last few series, then Kohli is struggling completely to score runs. Before getting a chance to rest in the T20 series against Sri Lanka, Virat’s performance in the ODI and T20 series against the West Indies was not special.
Only Virat Kohli could score 26 runs in the 3-match ODI series. During this, he could not even open the account once. In the first match of the T20 series, Virat Kohli was dismissed after scoring 17 runs. However, in the second match, he scored a half-century. In such a situation, the team will expect a strong comeback from Virat in the 2-match Test series starting from March 4. The first Test match to be played in Mohali will be Virat’s 100th Test match. In such a situation, Virat would like to make this special match even more special.
Shreyas Iyer took advantage of the opportunity
In the absence of Virat Kohli, Team India tried his place at number-3. He has also been playing for his IPL team Delhi Capitals at number-3. However, in this auction, Kolkata has made him the captain of his team by including him. Iyer took full advantage of this opportunity and scored a total of 204 runs in 3 matches of the series. The most important thing about Iyer’s batting was that the Sri Lankan bowlers could not get him out even once. Iyer played the first match of this series, 57 in the second match, 74 off 44 balls, and 73 runs in 45 balls in the third.
Virat Kohli’s special record made his name
Shreyas Iyer not only batted in place of Virat in this series but also made a special record in his name. On the strength of his brilliant batting, Iyer has now become the highest run-scorer in the three-match T20I series. Earlier this record was in the name of Virat Kohli. He scored 199 runs in the three-match T20 series against Australia in 2016.
Then in 2019, King Kohli scored 183 runs in the same number of matches against West Indies. However, the way Iyer has impressed with his performance during this series, if Kohli does not return to form at the earliest, then his address may also be cut from the team.
