Former India captain Virat Kohli has been going through a bad run of form over the last few years. Kohli hasn’t scored a century over the last 78 innings and hence has been on the radar with a lot of criticism. Several cricketing experts have also demanded the BCCI to drop the former world number one batter and give chance to other players in the squad.
But in this time a lot of people have come out to support the 33-year-old including this crazy fan from Nepal who made a tattoo on his arm of Virat Kohli to support him in these tough times. The tattoo also includes Kohli’s birth year (1988) along with the picture.
Just like this fan, several members of the cricketing fraternity have come out and backed Virat Kohli in these times. Pakistan skipper and current no. 1 player Babar Azam tweeted a supportive message for the Royal Challengers Bangalore batter. Similarly, England captain Jos Buttler also came out in support of Kohli during the post-match press conference saying that he has scored a lot of runs, and is shocked about why would someone question his ability.
"I suppose in a little way it's quite refreshing for the rest of us that he (Kohli) is human and he can have a couple of low scores as well, but look he has been one of the best players, if not the best player in ODI cricket in the world. So, he's been a fantastic player for so many years and all batters, it just proves, go through runs of form where they don't perform as well as they can do sometimes," Buttler said during a press conference.
He then talked about Kohli has won matches for India and has an impeccable record. "But certainly, as an opposition captain, you know a player of that class is always due, so you're hoping that it doesn't come against us. Yeah, incredibly surprised, as I said, his record speaks for himself. The matches he's won for India and yeah, why would you question that", Buttler added.
