But the injury has meant Kohli’s time is running out quickly. As he is all set to take a break from the West Indies series, he will have just 7-8 matches to get his form back. He will only be available for the Asia Cup and the three-match T20 series against Australia. Even if he plays all those eight matches, the form he is in, it will be difficult for him to hit the top gear at the T20 World Cup.

The ODI series was his best chance to get his form back as he excels in that format. But now that he has been ruled out of both 1st and 2nd ODIs, the time is running out.

IND vs ENG LIVE: Why ODI cricket is Virat Kohli’s last REFUGE?

  • Virat Kohli’s Test average is currently at 49.53, in T20s, it has plummeted to 50.12 and is just one poor knock away from going below 50.
  • In ODIs, Kohli still has a healthy average of 58.07.
  • Despite Babar Azam’s resurgence, Virat Kohli is the real King of ODI cricket with 12,311 runs and 43 centuries in 260 games.
  • While he hasn’t played the format often in the last two years, his game suits the format the best.
  • In recent times, Kohli has struggled to hit full rhythm from the word go, giving away his wickets more often than not.
  • But in ODIs, he can still take his time to get his rhythm back and get a big score.
  • The England bowling attack too isn’t world-class at the moment with several first-team pacers missing.
  • The ODI  series would have been his chance to regain form before Team India enters the final stretch for T20 World Cup.
  • In fact, two half-centuries in his last six ODI innings could be a hint at a bigger knock.
  • But he will now have only one ODI — if he regains full fitness.
