Danish Kaneria believes the upcoming edition of the Asia Cup will be very important for Virat Kohli.
The 33-year-old has failed to score an international hundred in almost three years and also struggled for fifties across formats.
The selectors rested him for the West Indies and Zimbabwe tours. Kaneria is backing Kohli to score big in the Asia Cup 2022.
“The Asia Cup will change Virat Kohli’s career. The tournament is very important for him if he wants to prolong his career and I feel he will score runs,” he said.
“Many former players have said that Kohli is just heavy baggage on the team if he doesn’t score runs. So he will have to be very careful about his display in the UAE. There are other players who are waiting to replace the veteran,” he added.
