After winning the first ODI match against England by 10 wickets, Team India have found themselves at the losing end in the second ODI on Thursday. Indian skipper Rohit Sharma has again backed out-of-form Virat Kohli during the post-match press conference.

Team India lost the second ODI against England at the Lord’s by 100 runs as the Men in Blue were bowled out for just 146 runs while chasing the target of 246 runs. Indian skipper Rohit Sharma scored a duck, while Virat Kohli was dismissed for just 16 runs.

While talking to the media after the defeat, Rohit Sharma seemed agitated by a reporter’s question over Kohli’s poor form. He said, “Why is there even a debate or discussion on Virat Kohli’s form. He has played so many matches over the years. He is such a great batsman that he does not need reassurance. I pointed to this in my last press conference as well that form keep going up and down, that is the part and parcel of any cricketer’s career. It can happen to any cricketer.”

“Players like him, who have played for so many years, made so many runs, won so many matches, they only need one or two good innings. That is my thinking and I am sure all those who follow cricket will think the same,” he added.

While talking to the media, Rohit Sharma mentioned Virat Kohli’s batting prowess. Rohit said, “Over the years, we have seen the performances of all players goes up and down, but the quality of the player never fades away. The guy has scored so many runs check his average, how many hundreds he has made, he has experience of doing that. There is a slump in every player’s life. Even in the personal life it comes.”

England captain Jos Buttler also defended Virat Kohli, who is having a rough-patch in his international career. Buttler told media, “I am incredibly surprised by the criticism he is getting.”

Meanwhile, Team India will play the third and the final ODI against England on Sunday, July 17 at the Old Trafford in Manchester.
