In the ongoing fifth Test against England, Kohli was dismissed for 11 by Matthew Potts in the first innings.

Former England captain Michael Atherton on Saturday talked about what will be Kohli’s great legacy and how he hopes the Indian batsman will rediscover his “best form”.

I wish him the best of luck as the coach of the Indian team and I Hopefully Virat, after some tough years with the bat, can rediscover his best form,” said Atherton talking to David Gower, Ajay Jadeja and Harsha Bhogle on Sony Sports Network as the game resumed on Day 2. last state.
“I think of his cricket, his batting and the way he has led the Indian Test team as captain and the way he has promoted Test cricket, I think it will be his great legacy,” he said.
Kohli led Team India in 68 Tests, winning 40 and losing 17. Kohli won the Test series in Australia in 2018-19 under his captaincy.
Kohli last scored a century in the day-night Test against Bangladesh at the Eden Gardens in November 2019.
Since then, the three-digit mark has not hit him. In the first innings of the ongoing Test against England, Kohli faced 19 balls and hit two boundaries in his 11-run knock before being sent to the pavilion by Potts.
