  • Virat Kohli has not scored any international century since 2019

Virat Kohli IND vs PAK: Many questions were being raised on the form of Virat Kohli before the Asia Cup 2022. However, in both the matches played so far of the tournament, Virat has made a significant contribution with his bat. He had scored half-centuries of 35 against Pakistan and 59 not out against Hong Kong. But a former Pakistan cricketer got embroiled in controversies with his rhetoric against him. He refused to consider Virat as a good player of T20.

We are talking about former Pakistan wicket-keeper batsman Rashid Latif, who made an absurd statement about Virat Kohli on a Pakistani news channel. Rashid said that, “No one is even close to Virat Kohli in ODIs, but Virat has never been a good player of T20. He has a good average, but not a strike rate.” Rashid did not calm down even after saying this, he mentioned IPL and also raised the issue of RCB not becoming champion.

Suryakumar and Rohit cannot become Virat

Rashid Latif further said that, “It is not a matter whether Virat Kohli plays slow or fast today. It is like this while playing. He starts hitting after playing 30-35 balls. Rohit Sharma is that kind of player who plays powerplay. We use it very well. Virat can never become Suryakumar Yadav or Rohit Sharma. His style of play remains the same in RCB as well, only then he could never become a champion.
