Virat Kohli,
the Royal Challengers Bangalore batter, is currently having a bad run with the
bat, having scored only 119 runs in eight matches. Kohli’s last international
century came in 2019 against Bangladesh, and the three-figure milestone has
escaped the former captain since then. Former Team India head coach Ravi
Shastri recently said that Virat should take a break since he appears
“overcooked.” Now, Delhi Capitals assistant coach Shane Watson has
also stated that something is different about the India batter, but he believes
Kohli will return to form soon.

Kohli stood
down as India’s T20I captain, and then Rohit Sharma was named ODI captain after
head selector Chetan Sharma said in a news conference that the selectors wanted
one leader for the white-ball forms. Following the Test series loss to South
Africa, Kohli relinquished his captaincy in the longest version of the game as
