Sourav Ganguly weighs in on Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma’s dismal IPL 2022 form

The batting performance issues of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma in the current 2022 Indian Premier League (IPL) have been a big subject of concern, especially as India prepares to play in the T20 World Cup in Australia later this month. On Friday, BCCI president Sourav Ganguly spoke out about the team’s terrible season performance. In 13 games this season, Kohli has 236 runs at 19.67 with a strike rate of 113.46. He only has a half-century and three golden duck dismissals to his credit. Kohli’s worst performance in the 14-year history of the IPL. With one game remaining in the league stage with RCB aiming for a playoff position, he has only scored less runs than in the inaugural edition.

 

In contrast, the Mumbai Indians skipper has a strike rate of 125.29 and has scored 218 runs in 12 games at an average of 18.17. The total consists of five single-digit scores and one duck dismissal. Despite the fact that the Mumbai Indians, who are officially out of the playoff race, have two more games to play, Rohit is still without a half-century this season. Despite the fact that the T20 World Cup is still a long way away, Ganguly told Mid Day that he is unfazed by the team’s current form and thinks they would swiftly recover.

 

“I’m not worried about Rohit or Virat’s performance. They’re much too good…true force multipliers. Although the World Cup is still some time away, I am certain that they will be in excellent shape well before then “he said

 

India will play four T20I series after the 2022 IPL, the first of which would be a five-match contest against South Africa in June. The itinerary, which includes two T20Is in Ireland, three in England, and three more at home against Australia, has still to be confirmed by the BCCI.
