Aakash Chopra, a former Indian batter, believes that even though Virat Kohli is an outstanding hitter, he needs to score runs.
During the next Asia Cup in the UAE, Indian star Virat Kohli will return to action after a lengthy absence. The 33-year-old former captain of India has been struggling lately. Both the current ODI series against Zimbabwe and the upcoming white-ball series in the West Indies saw Kohli take a break. Aakash Chopra, a former Indian batter who is unsure of his position in the team, believes that while Kohli is a fantastic hitter, he needs to produce runs, particularly with the T20 World Cup taking place in Australia later this year.
“Regarding his (Virat Kohli’s) position in the Indian team, that question is not currently relevant. But he cannot avoid the truth that he must score runs. Since the T20 World Cup last year, he has not played as much international cricket. Only four T20Is have been played by him since then “Chopra said on the “Game Plan” episode of Star Sports.

The Asia Cup may be a game changer for Kohli, according to Chopra.
“He is a fantastic player, possibly among the best the world has ever seen, but runs, contributions, and role-playing eventually enter the picture. No matter who is batting in position three for India, you must score runs. If you’re talking about team philosophy, Virat Kohli will need to perform well in this Asia Cup after a long break in light of that perspective and the forthcoming T20 World Cup “Added he.
