Virat Kohli has just scored 70 international centuries. But he has not been able to score a century for some time.
The final will be played between India and New Zealand on 18 June.
Virat Kohli’s Century Drought
Former Pakistan cricketer Salman Butt
believes that Virat Kohli
will soon end the drought of centuries. He says that the professional cricket career of the Indian captain has been fantastic. Virat Kohli
has already scored 70 international centuries. But he has not been able to score a century for some time. He has scored an ODI century in August 2019 while a Test century in November 2019. In this way, it has been one and a half years since he scored a century. In his YouTube show, Salman Butt said that Virat Kohli can overcome his mental hurdles in ICC events like World Test Championship and T20 World Cup. This can happen due to the kind of tremendous batsman Kohli is.
The former Pakistan captain
believes that the Indian captain will score a century in the final of the World Test Championship against New Zealand. He said, ‘They have already crossed many obstacles. Who thought he would score 70 centuries by this age. Who thought he would be as fit as he is today or will maintain such form? Chasing runs, his strike rate is 90. Their average is above 50 in all three formats. Who thought He has already crossed all these records. In such a situation, who will stop them from crossing this record? To be honest, he can do this only in the next match or in the next series.
Butt added, “He has not scored a century in more than a year, but see how fast he still runs. If he does not score a century, then we think that he did not score. I think they have all the ability to do all this and it’s only a matter of time.’
Kohli’s record has been poor in the last two ICC matches
If Kohli’s record is seen in the ICC tournament, the Indian captain would like him to improve his stats. In the last two ICC knockout matches, Kohli could score only five and one runs. He played this match as Champions Trophy final against Pakistan in 2017 and World Cup semi-final against New Zealand in 2019.
