T20 World Cup: ‘Virat Kohli may hit hundreds in next three games to silence all’ | Cricket News – Times of India

Not many were expecting low scores from Virat Kohli, especially for three consecutive matches at the T20 World Cup, after his prolific run in the Indian Premier League (IPL) just before the ICC event. It has understandably led to debates around whether the decision to ask Kohli to open is right, but Kohli's teammate Shivam Dube feels it won't be long before the batting legend silences his critics once again.Kohli scored 741 runs while opening the batting for Royal Challengers Bengaluru in IPL 2024, which led to the Indian think-tank toying with the idea of asking Kohli to partner skipper Rohit Sharma at the top, which is where he has batted in India's three matches so far in the T20 World Cup.But the move hasn't worked until now; and while India have won all three matches, Kohli is yet ...

‘When you get three low scores…’ Sunil Gavaskar on Virat Kohli’s poor run in T20 World Cup 2024 | Cricket News – Times of India

Coming from a prolific Indian Premier League season, Virat Kohli was expected to set the T20 World Cup on fire, but a string of low scores on difficult tracks in New York has led to some of the Indian fans wondering if the batting legend has lost his form. But former India captain Sunil Gavaskar said there's nothing to worry.Kohli won the 'Orange Cap' at this year's IPL, where he ended up as the tournament's top run-getter with 741 runs while opening the batting for Royal Challengers Bengaluru.Taking cue from that, perhaps, the Indian think-tank chose to push Kohli up a spot as opener, partnering skipper Rohit Sharma.T20 WORLD CUP: Schedule | Points TableHowever, the move hasn't worked.

T20 World Cup: Caution hinting at their lack of confidence, Pakistan get over the line against Canada to keep Super 8 hopes alive

Desperate situations call for desperate measures, even if it means breaking up one of the most prolific opening partnerships for a team. Babar Azam and Mohammad Rizwan have been almost a constant at the top of the order for Pakistan in their recent T20I history – not to great effect of late – but after two demoralising defeats to start their T20 World Cup campaign and the wave of criticism coming in their direction, the skipper made the radical decision to drop himself down the order. With net run rate also in the picture, conventional logic would suggest that the former champions would have try to get the 107-run target as quickly as possible, but the lack of confidence and vagaries of the unpredictable Nassau County pitch meant that even against a limited opposition like Canada, they ...
