IND vs ENG LIVE: Former India captain Virat Kohli had yet another poor show with the bat on Sunday at Trent Bridge. With doubts about his place on the side, the onus was on the 33-year-old to shut his detractors with his bat. However, Kohli failed to do so, departing for just 11 runs in the IND vs ENG 3rd T20.

Virat Kohli returned to the Indian T20I side after five months, but the fortunes did not align for the 33-year-old in England. The former Indian captain was dismissed for just 1 in Edgbaston, before being dismissed for 11 at Trent Bridge.

Kohli tried to take on David Willey, hitting him for a four and six off consecutive deliveries to show signs of intent, having walked into bat after Rishabh Pant’s dismissal. However, the former captain walked down the pitch to hit Willey again, but could only find Jason Roy at extra cover.

Why Virat Kohli’s place in the squad is under threat?

  • Virat Kohli has struggled in T20 cricket recently, scoring at a strike rate of 115.98 in the IPL
  • He returned to the Indian team after five months, scoring 1 and 11.
  • Kohli’s struggles come at a time when the likes of Deepak Hooda, Shreyas Iyer and Suryakumar Yadav have performed well at No.3
  • Before being dropped for Kohli, Deepak Hooda’s scores read – 47, 104, 33 in his last three innings.

Kohli has been through a rough patch over the last couple of years, having not scored a century since November 2019. His runs across all formats have dwindled and his place in the T20 side was debated with India opting for a far more aggressive approach.

India’s timid batting cost them the T20 World Cup last year, and Kohli’s middling strike rate in the middle overs is a huge cause of concern even when the 33-year-old gets runs. In the IPL 2022, the former captain scored 341 runs in 16 matches at an average of 22.73 and strike rate of 115.98 with two fifties.
