Former England Captain On Virat Kohli: “That Will Be His Great Legacy”
Virat Kohli’s promotion of Test cricket, according to former England captain Michael Atherton, will be his greatest legacy.
Since November 2019, Virat Kohli has not recorded a century in international cricket. He is currently going through a slump. In the first innings of the ongoing, delayed fifth Test against England, Kohli was out for 11 by Matthew Potts. However, the right-handed batter has received praise for motivating and successfully leading the India Test team. Michael Atherton, a former England captain, discussed Saturday what Kohli’s great legacy would be and expressed his wish for the Indian batter to reclaim his “greatest form.”
“I’m a little more familiar with Rahul Dravid than Virat Kohli. It was good to talk to them both. I played against Rahul, and I hold him in the highest regard. I wish him luck in his new role as the head coach of the Indian team and I hope Virat can regain his best form at the plate after a couple of challenging years, “Before Day 2 of play began, Atherton spoke with David Gower, Ajay Jadeja, and Harsha Bhogle on the Sony Sports Network.
He continued, “I am a big admirer of his batting, cricket, and the way he has led the Indian Test team ahead in his role as captain. I also think that the way he has promoted Test cricket will be his great legacy.
In 68 Tests as Team India’s captain, Kohli had 40 victories and 17 defeats. In Australia in 2018–19, Kohli led his team to a Test series victory.
The last time Kohli scored a century was in a day-night Test against Bangladesh at the Eden Gardens in November of 2019.
Since then, he has failed to reach the three-figure mark. Before being dismissed by Potts in the first innings of the current Test match against England, Kohli faced 19 balls and hit two fours in his 11-run performance.
