Australian Opener David Warner backs Virat Kohli despite latter’s poor form with the willow in last 2 years

Indian Test captain Virat Kohli’s poor form is the most discussed thing in the Indian Cricket since last 2 years. He hasn`t been able to  score a century since 2019, He scored his last century i.e. century number 70 against Bangladesh at Eden Garden, Kolkata, In that match he scored a match-winning 136 runs and since then his fans has not been able to see Virat Kohli scoring a century.


Kohli is currently in South Africa, as Men in Blue  are playing a three-match Test series with the Proteas, and it is expected that he will lead the team in the third Test match which is going to be played on 11th January at Cape Town, he missed the second test due to back spasm.

Virat has been criticized by many people due to his inability to score runs, but Aussie opener David Warner came in support of Virat as he was seen praising Kohli in his recent interview with Boria Majumdar and he even said some positive things about Kohli.

“A lot of people talk about Virat Kohli’s form over the last couple of years. We have gone through a pandemic. He has just had a baby. We only see how well he has done. You are allowed to fail. You are allowed to fail. You have earned the right to fail when you are so good at what you do. People say Steve Smith doesn’t score a century in his fourth innings because stats say he scores a century every four innings. He is human. You are allowed to have a rough trot. That is why there are a lot more pressure on those guys. But would not feel the pressure at all, I guarantee that,” Warner said while speaking on the chat show ‘Backstage with Boria’.   

Kohli has scored 70 centuries till date in International arena which include 43 ODI hundreds and 27 Test Hundred the batting giant has been averaging around 26.50 in the longest format of the game in last 2 years and if India needs to win last test and series against Proteas in latter’s backyard for the first time it’s Indian Captain who needs to score big with the willow.
