The Border-Gavaskar Trophy debut against Australia was not scoring runs like that. But Virat Kohli has once again proved that he is not finished. At one time he had to face various types of criticisms. Finally scored a Test century in Ahmedabad in the last match of the Test series against Ajid. He also silenced the critics. Virat scored 186 runs. A week after scoring that century, the former India captain opened up. He answered the critics in his own way.
He scored his last century before the Ahmedabad Test in the historic pink ball Day-Night Test in 2019 against Bangladesh at the Eden Gardens. He scored 136 runs in that match. Since then he stopped scoring runs with the bat. He had played 41 innings before the last century. 1205 days passed. Scored only 5 fifties in between. Some critics started questioning his place in the Indian team. However, on March 13 this year, Kohli silenced everyone.
Virat Kohli said on AB de Villiers’ YouTube channel, ‘When I score a century, I get some peace and I can convert those runs into big numbers. Comes back with my confidence. He also said, ‘After scoring a century, I feel good on the field from a cricketing point of view. Personally I was very happy and calm. During the game one has to be in the best possible moment.’
In conversation with ABD, Virat Kohli reveals his love for red ball cricket. The former captain said, ‘I talk to ABD many times. AB knows how much I value Test cricket. I have scored hundreds in T20 and ODIs. Playing white ball cricket with the right mindset can overcome various obstacles. On the other hand, the pitch we played on in the last match of the Test series was nothing special for the bowlers. But to get a good run, you have to play well for at least seven or eight hours. Because the opposition team Australia can surprise anytime. It tested me.
VK also said, ‘I was scoring runs in this match. But if someone asks me what is satisfying about his game? My answer would be no. I wanted to score a big run. This is something that has always bothered me. Whether at home or abroad, I always want to run. I was upset that I could not run for the team to the best of my ability. But I am proud that I scored runs for the team in the last match.
