Virat Kohli is going through the longest rough patch in his career. He scored just 26 runs in a three-match ODI series against the West Indies. Even in the first T20I against the Kieron Pollard-led team, he amassed 17 runs. Meanwhile, despite his poor form, former India player Wasim Jaffer has backed the 33-year old cricketer.
Wasim has urged the batting star to show patience as things are not going his way despite him trying his best to score runs. Jaffer also mentioned that once Kohli breaks the barrier, he would score runs consistently as he used to before 2019.
“I am sure he is working hard in the nets. Every cricketer goes through this phase, and Virat is no different,” said Wasim Jaffer while speaking to ESPNcricinfo.
“Virat need to show some patience. But, once he breaks that barrier, I am sure he will score runs consistently,” he added.
Virat hasn’t scored a century since 2019, and he has been found wanting across formats. His habit of playing the balls pitched outside the off stumps has resulted in his downfall in Test cricket, while he threw away his wicket trying to dominate bowlers in the limited-overs cricket.
