After India thrashed Australia in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy series opener on Saturday, former Indian captain Virat Kohli has come under criticism from legendary cricketer Sunil Gavaskar. The former Indian skipper Kohli will get a warm welcome when India faces Australia in the second Test of the four-match series on February 17 at New Delhi’s Arun Jaitley Stadium. Kohli recorded an amazing double century during the former Indian captain’s previous Test match there.

The former Indian skipper Kohli led his side from the front in the third Test of the 2017 series between India and Sri Lanka, compiling a then-career-best total of 243 in Delhi. Kohli is eagerly anticipating ending his century drought today in the game’s oldest and most enduring form. The 34-year-old has had four centuries in international cricket since September 2022.

However, Kohli hasn’t recently hit a century in red-ball cricket. Kohli, who had a difficult time during the second ICC World Test Championship, was dismissed in Nagpur in the Border-Gavaskar Trophy series opener for a cheap run. Gavaskar, a legendary cricketer, believes that Kohli, a former captain of India, can finally break his long drought at home. Gavaskar agrees that Kohli needs only one outstanding Test cricket performance to reclaim his form.

“Even though there has only been one inning of play in the Test matches, there are still three more to go. A player of his caliber ought to score each time out. However, this was just one inning, and I think a century comeback is still feasible on his home ground in Delhi “said Gavaskar in India Today. Virat Kohli was astonished by Todd Murphy, who was taking part in his debut test for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy. The Indian run machine was crushed for 12 off 26 deliveries in the first Test, which India finally won on Saturday by an inning and 132 runs.

With an average of above 50, the renowned batsman Virat Kohli has amassed 1694 runs in Test matches against Australia. In a test match in 2019, the former Indian captain last scored a century. The top player is also expected to hit 25,000 runs in international cricket during the next second Test match between Australia and India. It is expected that the seasoned player would amass 4,000 Test runs throughout the four-match series between Australia and India. In 47 home Test matches, Kohli has scored 3859 runs for the Asian powerhouse. In 105 Test matches, Kohli has amassed 8,131 runs, including 27 hundred and 28 half-centuries.
