IND vs ENG: Virat Kohli’s bat did not work even against England, you will not like the figures

Virat Kohli was out early again in the semi-final match against England in the T20 World Cup. With this, Kohli’s struggle for runs continued in this World Cup. This was also the first time that Virat Kohli failed in an ICC knockout match. After losing the toss, the Indian team came out to bat first. After which Kohli hit a big six on Reece Topley, the way Kohli hit this shot raised the hopes of the fans. But after a few balls, Kohli was clean bowled by Reece Topley.

Virat Kohli’s performance in the 7 matches played so far in this tournament has not been anything special. He has scored only 75 runs in 7 matches. During this, his average is only 10.50, which is nowhere close to Kohli’s stature. During this, his best score has been 37 runs, while twice he returned to the pavilion on zero.

Knockout record also broken

Looking at Kohli’s record in knockouts, it was expected that his bat would speak against England. But even today he could score only 9 runs. Earlier, talking about knockout matches, Kohli had scored 72 not out in the 2014 T20 World Cup. In the final of this World Cup, Kohli again played an innings of 77 runs. Similarly, in the semi-finals of the year 2016, he scored an unbeaten 89 runs. At the same time, Kohli scored 50 runs in the 2022 T20 World Cup semi-finals. Looking at this record, there were chances that Kohli would leave behind his poor form and score runs today. But Kohli disappointed everyone.

Apart from this, the poor performance in the T20 World Cup has also affected Kohli’s overall statistics. Especially his average in T20 has deteriorated. Before this T20 World Cup, Kohli’s batting average was 51.75, while currently his average has gone down to 48.37. Before the T20 World Cup, Virat had scored 4037 runs in 117 matches. But after the match against England, Kohli now has only 4112 runs in 124 matches at an average of just 48.72.
