Virat Kohli new look ahead of IPL 2023
He will soon join RCB for the 16th edition of IPL.

Former Indian player Gautam Gambhir lauded Virat Kohli for his innings against Afghanistan but was surprised the selectors didn’t drop him from the team for failing to score a hundred in three years.

Virat’s 71st hundred came after 2019, and he went through a lot during his challenging days. He came back to cricket after a long break in the Asia Cup 2022 and accumulated 122 runs in the last game of the tournament. He hit 12 fours and 6 sixes at the Dubai International Stadium.

“He batted well against Afghanistan, but it was surprising for me that he was retained in the team despite not scoring a hundred in three years. KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant, and Cheteshwar Pujara were dropped, but not Kohli. He has earned that. I dont remember any player in the past who was allowed to continue to play without hitting a century for that long,” he said.
