It is not often heard that Virat Kohli is struggling to score runs but this case was prominent during the ODI series between New Zealand and India. The Indian captain had an off-color 50-overs series where he could not score vital runs for his team. Virat’s poor form during the 3-match series became problematic for India as they were white-washed by the home team for the first time since 1989.
The Indian captain scored only 75 in 3-match series, averaging only 25. Moreover, in 7 limited-overs games that Kohli has played during this tour of New Zealand, he has scored only one half-century which came during the 1st ODI game.
The Indian captain has been the real backbone of this team in the past half a decade. The men in blue want Kohli to regain his prime form before the Test series starts on 21st February in Wellington.
