Virat Kohli is living a nightmare in front of millions of people: Aakash Chopra

Aakash Chopra on RCB's player poor batting form

Aakash Chopra feels bad for out of form Indian cricketer Virat Kohli. The former player feels that it is really difficult at this time to be Virat Kohli against the sort of attention that he gets as a player. And, he wants a right-handed batsman to manage a strong comeback in cricket.

Virat Kohli is having one of the worst IPL seasons of his cricket career. He has managed only 128 runs recording two golden ducks. Kohli’s bat has suddenly stopped producing runs with the bat. He last scored his century against Bangladesh back in 2019 during pink-ball Test. Since then, the right-handed batsman has failed to touch the three-figure mark in any of the games across all the formats.

Aakash Chopra feels sad for former Indian skipper Virat Kohli

On Tuesday, Virat Kohli was promoted to the batting order by the RCB think-tank due to his brilliant record. Everyone expected him to get his prime touch back with the bat. However, that was not the case and he got out scoring just 9 odd runs. RR pacer Prasidh Krishna bowled a decent bouncer and Kohli in his attempt to pull it for a six ended up giving an easy catch to Riyan Parag.

Now, Aakash Chopra has opened up on Kohli’s struggle with the bat in recent times. He feels that Kohli is currently going through a nightmare in cricket. As per him, this happens with players but certainly, in his case, everything is happening in front of million people.

“Virat Kohli is living a nightmare, for some the nightmare gets over, the bad times get over. This nightmare is unfolding in front of millions of people. It is tough being Virat Kohli right now. It is tough being Virat Kohli. PERIOD. The kind of attention that he gets,” Aakash Chopra said.

Chopra asserted that Virat Kohli never looked confident against RR. He was edging the ball instead of timing it well with the bat. The former Indian cricketer added that Kohli is trying everything required in order to gain his batting form. But, nothing seems to be going in his favor at this point of time.

“Today, I felt that his bat was made of edges. There was no fiddle. He got a couple of boundaries. He is trying everything. He is going hard at the ball. He is taking his time. But it’s just not working out. Two first-ball ducks. He has been dismissed six times in the first 10 balls,” Chopra added.
