NEW DELHI: Former Indian batsman and cricket analyst Aakash Chopra has delved into the reasons behind Virat Kohli’s batting struggles in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. Despite a stellar IPL 2024 campaign as an opener, Kohli has failed to replicate that form in this prestigious tournament.

In the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024, Kohli promoted as an opener for Team India, has managed only 29 runs across four matches, a surprisingly poor performance from one of the world’s best players on such a global stage. Despite being the all-time leading run-scorer in T20 World Cup history, Kohli’s current stats don’t align with his stature. Nevertheless, Team India’s impressive performance positions them well for the 2024 T20 World Cup semifinals.

The Men in Blue are just one win away from securing a spot in the semifinals, with a crucial Super-8 clash against Bangladesh scheduled for June 22 at Sir Vivian Richards Stadium in Antigua. A victory in this match would greatly boost India’s chances of advancing further.

On his YouTube channel, Chopra, in his analysis, pointed out the challenges faced by Kohli, including tricky pitches and the weight of high expectations. These factors have contributed to Kohli’s struggles in the tournament, despite his undeniable talent and experience.

Comparing Kohli to cricket legends like Sachin Tendulkar and Vivian Richards, Chopra highlighted their constant drive for self-improvement and excellence. Kohli’s commitment to an aggressive style of play, while commendable, has also been a factor in his inconsistent performance.

Chopra also discussed the impact of challenging pitches, particularly the New York pitch, on Kohli’s game. Despite the difficulties, Kohli’s determination to stick to his chosen style reflects his strong mindset and dedication to his game.

In conclusion, while Kohli faces challenges in the T20 World Cup 2024, his resilience and commitment to improvement remain admirable traits. The upcoming matches will be crucial for both Kohli and Team India as they aim for success in this prestigious tournament.
