Sunil Gavaskar supports Virat Kohli out of shape: When Rohit Sharma doesn’t score races, nobody talks about it

Former India captain Sunil Gavaskar has backed Virat Kohli, saying it was too early to worry about Kohli’s place in India’s squad for the upcoming 2022 ICC Men’s T20 World Cup in Australia. Gavaskar admitted that while Kohli is having a hard time with the bat, Rohit Sharma and other players have struggled to perform well.

Kohli’s place on the T20 side is being questioned repeatedly by pundits, including former greats like Kapil Dev and Virender Sehwag, although captain Rohit Sharma has firmly supported his longtime colleague.

“See, I can’t understand that when Rohit Sharma doesn’t score runs nobody talks about it. It’s the same with other players too. There’s a saying that form is temporary, class is temperament. adopting (in T20Is) where they have to swing the stick from ball one, you will succeed and you will fail,” Gavaskar told Sports Tak.

There’s no need to panic yet and we need to give them some time,” added the 73-year-old.
