Virat Kohli has been struggling with poor form after being unable to score runs in the present times. The star batsman who took Indian cricket to a new peak hasn’t scored a century in the last three years, and neither had a memorable knock to triumph against his poor form. Virat Kohli was recently rested from the West Indies tour which became a spot of bother as the cricketing fraternity questioned Virat Kohli being rested after every series. Kapil Dev, a former cricketing legend who lifted India’s maiden world cup title, too, opined on Virat. He suggested selectors look for alternatives for Virat Kohli.

However, Dinesh Karthik, who is lately making a comeback to the Indian team after a heroic feature in IPL 2022, has opined on Virat Kohli being rested amidst poor form. “Virat has experienced insane success over the period of time. Now he will get a good break and will come back all recharged and hopefully, will do phenomenally well. You can never rule out a player of his caliber,” said Karthik. He further continued, “As a team, we are preparing for the challenges we will have to face during the upcoming World Cup. Coach Rahul Dravid and Rohit Sharma have taken everyone along as we prepare for the big event. It is a very positive environment,” said Karthik.
