Australian opener and Delhi Capitals star David Warner has left a hilarious piece of advise for former India captain and Royal Challengers Bangalore star Virat Kohli. Notably, the latter has been struggling to score runs across lately and while he did manage to score his first half-century in IPL 2022, he took 53-balls for his 58.
Amid such a situation, Warner, who himself was in poor form in IPL 2021 and was even stripped of his captaincy and not given a place in the Sunrisers Hyderabad Playing XI, has jokingly adviced Kohli to have a couple more kids.
"Have a couple more Kids and Enjoy Love! The form is temporary and class is permanent so you don’t lose that. It happens to every single player in the world," Warner said in a meet and greet session hosted by Sports Yaari.
He highlighted that such things do happen to the best in the world but are part and parcel of the sport. He urged Kohli to stick to the basics.
“It doesn’t matter how good a player you are, you’re always going to have these ebbs and flows. Sometimes the ebb is a long way before you get back up there. Stick to the basics,” Warner stated.
In 10 innings in this season of the IPL, Kohli has 186 runs at an average of 20.66 and a strike rate of 116.25. He has got out for two golden ducks already in the season. Kohli would try and come up with his best game against the Chennai Super Kings whom Bangalore meet later on Wednesday.
With Kohli's return to form, the Bangalore batting lineup would certainly start looking all the more dangerous with captain Faf du Plessis as Kohli's opening partner and Glenn Maxwell and an in-form Dinesh Karthik in the middle order.
Bangalore will play Chennai at the MCA Stadium in Pune.
