Over the last several months, Virat Kohli, a former captain of India, has struggled with his batting. After his repeated failures in England, there have been rising doubts over Kohli’s form. In five innings across all forms, the Indian batsman has failed to score more than 20 runs. While Kohli had a great start in his final match, the second ODI of the series, he cheaply lost his wicket after nicking a length ball outside off from left-hander David Willey for an easy catch by Jos Buttler.

Fans and past cricket players alike have paid close attention to Kohli’s mediocre performance. Pakistan captain Babar Azam encouraged Kohli to “remain strong” during the difficult time on his official Twitter page. Both England’s Jos Buttler and Indian skipper Rohit Sharma encouraged Kohli to emerge victorious from the challenging period at the press conference held after the second ODI.

Amid the ongoing debates over the 33-year-batting old’s difficulties, Kohli posted a motivating statement to his official Twitter account along with the enigmatic phrase “Perspective.”

The statement was, “What if I trip? But what if you fly, sweetie?

The remark primarily aims to inspire someone who is having trouble or is having second thoughts about a certain endeavor.

In contrast, since his international comeback earlier this year, Kohli has recorded scores of 11 and 20 in the rescheduled fifth Test, 1 and 11 in two T20Is, and 16 in the second ODI at Lord’s. Kohli’s lengthy period without a century in international play has been extensively discussed, but he has criticized consistent 50+ scores since.

The batter will play again in the third and final one-day international of the series against England in Manchester, which is most likely to be his last opportunity to compete for his country until the latter part of August. For the West Indies trip, which begins on July 29 and consists of three ODIs and five T20Is, Kohli has been given a break.
