It is obvious that Virat Kohli has rediscovered his golden touch. The man who had previously led India in one-day internationals scored two hundreds in the three matches that were his last before the series against New Zealand began.
As of right present, Kohli has scored 74 tonnes across all formats of international cricket, including 27 in Tests, 46 in ODIs, and 1 in T20Is. On the list of hitters who have scored the most centuries, he is now in second place, behind only Sachin Tendulkar (100 tonnes).
However, up until a few months ago, Kohli was having trouble scoring runs because it had been more than two years since he had scored a century. In light of this, a journalist from Pakistan attempted to pick on Kohli by claiming that the cricketer is at his best “when there’s no pressure” to succeed.
On the other hand, he was met with a forceful retort from the Pakistani middle-order hitter Sohaib Maqsood, who has played in 29 ODIs and 26 T20Is throughout his career.
“Virat Kohli is at his absolute best when there is no pressure, when the series is not at stake, and when the circumstances are ideal for batting.
The journalist by the name of Farid Khan wrote, “There’s no harm in developing confidence and form in such contests. However, India needs him to play well in Test cricket with Australia coming over.”
Maqsood’s response was as follows: “Are you sure that he is only at his best when there is no pressure? Grow up, young man; two wrongs do not make one right.”
However, the writer was in no mood to back down as he continued writing: “Sohaib bhai, for a player to rebuild confidence, nothing helps more than favourable conditions.”
He went through a dry spell, but he needed a match against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup when India were not participating in the event, and then he needed a match against Bangladesh when they had already lost the series.
Despite this, Maqsood remained steadfastly committed to his position. “When he wasn’t getting runs, he wasn’t even getting on these roads. Tell me the areas of the country or the fields where he hasn’t scored centuries??? “Ignore that if they troll baber since we all know how much of a larger player baber is,” he wrote on Twitter.
