‘I have said that over and over…’: Ricky Ponting’s big statement on Virat Kohli’s form | Cricket News
However, the former India captain ended a century-old drought in international cricket last year by beating his first tonne T20I against Afghanistan in an Asian Cup encounter. He continued that with three more centuries in ODI against Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
Kohli also failed to make an impact in Border Cup-Gavaskar against Australia when he scored only 111 runs in the first three Tests.
But the former captain of Australia Ricky Ponting appeared undisturbed by Kohli’s form and said ‘champion players always find a way’ to recover.
“As for Kohli, I’ve said over and over again, champions always find a way. He might be in a bit of a drought at the moment, might not score the runs we all have. Everyone expected him to score, but he was a realist. don’t worry about this because I believe he will recover,” Ponting told ICC Review.
Rankers in the India-Australia Test series have become the biggest talking point as batters struggle to get ahead to handle the spin and here’s why Ponting from refuses to rate any form of polish in the series.
“I don’t look at anyone’s form in this series because for the hitters it’s really been a nightmare. Australia did a remarkable job by turning two Test games around. that first and back to win the third. We all know how hard hitting the ball is. And it’s not the turn, it’s the uneven bounce that makes you lose. belief in the rubber and if that happens, you’re always guessing, which makes hitting the ball really difficult,” he added.
