Virat Kohli’s form is a major concern these days for the Indian cricket team, once called the ton machine or the run machine is now struggling to make runs. Virat Kohli has requested BCCI to not consider him for the WI tour as he wants to take time to rejuvenate himself and find his golden form as former cricketers have questioned his position in the team, they said all the legends were dropped so Kohli should go through the same and perform in domestic to find a place again in National team. However, Robin Uthappa lends his support to Kohli.
When he (Virat Kohli) was scoring runs, when he was hitting hundred after hundred, nobody said he should play like this or that. Now, I don’t think we have any right to tell him how to play. He has scored 70 hundreds thanks to his own abilities and he will score another 30 or 35 also on his own abilities,” Uthappa said.
“We need to just leave him alone and let him play cricket. He knows what works best for him and I believe once he acknowledges his problem, he will be able to sort it out on his own. All we need to do is give him space to be himself,” he added.
If he feels it is fit for him to take a break, then he can take a break. If he feels he has to play a certain series or tournament, allow him to play. Don’t bring his spot into question. He is a match-winner, one of the proven match-winners and he is the best in the world. We have no right and authority or no ground to stand on and question his ability to win matches or question his position in our team,” Uthapppa concluded
