There was a time when Virat Kohli, the
poster boy of Indian cricket, went to the field to create new records. A half century or a
century was scored was a regular incident. Kohli who scored 70 centuries in all formats is now
looking at the other side of the coin.
In three consecutive years, not a single century came from Kohli's willows. Initially it was a
century drought but now it has turned into a run drought. The former Indian captain is failing
match after match with the bat. In such a situation, there are rumors that he will be dropped
from the cricket team.
Indian legend Sachin Tendulkar faced such a situation in 2004. He was making headlines every day
for his form. However, he returned to form in the Sydney Test in the series against Australia by
playing a patient long innings of 241 runs.
No, Tendulkar did not return to form that day by doing exactly 'like himself'. Tendulkar scored
runs in that innings without playing his favorite shot cover drive. Dilip Vengsarkar, another
former Indian captain and one of the best batsmen in the country's history, has advised Kohli,
who is desperate to get back into form, to follow the example of Sachin's innings.
He told Dubai-based English daily Khaleej Times, ''Tendulkar was in bad form in Australia in
2004. He was getting out in the same way. But it was Tendulkar who completely abandoned the
scoring area of getting out in the Sydney Test."
Vengsarkar also said, "Sachin played an innings of 241 runs in that Test without playing his
favorite shot cover drive. Virat is also getting out in the same way. He also has the ability to
follow Tendulkar. He can try that to get back into form. Will Kohli follow Sachin chapter? Time
