Virat Kohli's barren run in terms of scoring centuries has continued in the ongoing Test series against England as well. It has become a talking point in the cricketing fraternity and Virat too is not unaware of this. However, the Indian captain doesn't seem to be worried about his personal form and is rather focused on the team's success.

The ‘Run Machine’ has not scored a lot of runs in the past few games. Kohli's last international century came against Bangladesh in 2019. However, Kohli's childhood coach, Rajkumar Sharma, has predicted that a big hundred is around the corner for the Indian captain. Sharma, in a recent interaction with India News, said that when he spoke to Kohli he seemed to be in a good frame of mind and people should not be worried about him.

“I don't feel there is any need to motivate him because he is extremely motivated. When I had spoken to him after the last match as well, he was quite excited and was happy that they had won and was not too worried about his runs. When he has such an attitude, a big hundred is about to come,” said Rajkumar Sharma.

Sharma was also shocked to know about Kohli's latest Test Ranking. “It is shocking news for me that Virat Kohli has fallen to the fifth spot. I was expecting that Joe Root would have probably gone ahead of him. I will definitely talk to him,” Sharma added.

Virat has aggregated 62 runs from 3 innings

In the Test series so far, Virat Kohli has managed to score 62 runs from the two games he has played. He also registered a golden duck in the first innings of the first game when he was dismissed by James Anderson. However, Kohli looked determined in the second game and scored 42 and 20 in the respective innings.

He has been dismissed in a similar fashion, poking at the away going deliveries, on all three instances. Experts like VVS Laxman and Michael Vaughan have reckoned that Kohli is shuffling too much and he is not aware of his off stump. This is tempting him to play the balls that should be left alone.
