The preparation for Cricket T20 World Cup 2022 is in full swing and Australia is hosting this event this time. The tournament is scheduled to play across seven Australian cities from 16 October to 13 November 2022 with a total of 45 non-stop matches. A total number of sixteen teams will lock horns in the upcoming ICC’s Men T20 World Cup and all teams have already started preparation for this Mega Global Event that is going to take place in October-November this year.
Coming to India’s preparation, India’s biggest concern is Virat Kohli’s form. In this blog, we will tell Virat Kohli’s importance to the Indian Team.
Importance of Virat Kohli in Cricket T20 World Cup 2022
Virat Kohli has been one of the finest batsmen of the last decade, if not of all time. The right-handed batter has plundered 12344 runs at an average of 57.7 and a strike rate of 92.8 in 262 One Day International Games. He also smashed 43 hundred and 64 fifties in ODI cricket. In Test cricket, he smacked 8074 runs in 102 Test matches at an average of 49.5 and he also smashed 27 centuries in Test cricket.
Coming to his T20 stats, he has a splendid batting average of over 50 in T20 cricket. He has scored 3308 in 99 T20 games at a strike rate of 137.7. He also hit 30 half-centuries in T20I. This type of aura, King Kohli possesses. However, a dip in his recent performance is a concern for Indian Team. India Cricket Team’s biggest problem is whether should they stick with King Kohli for Cricket T20 World Cup 2022 or not.
Perhaps he needs just that one bunch of luck and he will come roaring back in the form. For that to happen, though, he needs to play on the ground. He needs to be in the game as long as he can.
Virat Kohli seems to be taking more breaks from his game. This is surprising since all these holidays do not appear to be helping his batting form in any way. The cricketer who, it was once surmised, had a chance to crack Sachin Tendulkar’s awesome one-day international (ODI) records, has gone without an international hundred in any form of the game for more than 2.5 years.
And now he will not be going to the West Indies for the white-ball series that starts in a few days. We will see him in action in Asia Cup 2022.
