Virat Kohli was last seen in action in England but failed to make significant contributions across formats.

The Asia Cup 2022 tournament is very important for Virat Kohli, who has featured in a few games for the Men in Blue after the Indian Premier League 2022. He missed the West Indies tour and is also not a part of the ongoing ODIs in Zimbabwe. Danish Kaneria has warned Virat amid his lack of runs.

Kohli scored just 12 runs in two T20Is against England and 33 runs in two ODI matches. Speaking to India Today, Kaneria slammed Kohli for missing international contests. The veteran cricketer said Virat should have skipped a few games in IPL 2022 instead of taking a break.

“A lot has opened with Virat Kohli after the ICC T20 World Cup. He was sacked as a captain in ODIs, and there was also a tiff with the board. Kohli needs to concentrate on his batting,” he said.

“He made a big mistake by skipping international matches. Virat shouldn’t have played games in the Indian Premier Leagues, as matches for the national team are more important. The five T20Is against West Indies were crucial for him,” he added.

“Lack of match practice could impact his batting in the Asia Cup 2022. The 33-year-old will be under immense pressure when he takes the field against Pakistan on August 28.”
