Former Indian captain Virat Kohli has struggled to regain his form in both international and domestic cricket since the 2019 ODI World Cup. His recent performance has raised concerns about his future in the national team and whether he should take a break from cricket for a while.
Kohli hasn’t scored a century in any format since November 2019, and he has a similarly bad run in the ongoing IPL. However, his golden duck in a recent IPL match reminded fans of an old Twitter interview with Mohammad Asif.
Former Pakistan medium pacer Mohammad Asif predicted that Kohli has been scoring so many runs due to his fitness, but that once his decline begins, it will be difficult for him to make a comeback.

“Kohli is a bottom-hand specialist. He’s doing well because of his fitness, which is helping him. I don’t think Kohli will be able to make a comeback once he begins to decline.”
The old interview has now gone viral, with many people sharing Asif’s thoughts on Kohli and how he understood cricket better than others.
Former India head coach Ravi Shastri has advised Virat Kohli to take a break from cricket in order to regroup and get back in shape after a long period of poor form. Shoaib Akhtar, a Pakistani pacer, had also advised him to consider himself an ordinary batter and to play freely in order to get himself out of a rut.
It is worth noting that Virat Kohli has been a consistent run scorer for India for over a decade. He is the only Indian batter with an average of more than 50 in all formats.
