Despite a slump in form, a Zimbabwean star supports Virat Kohli in "Let The Guy Live In Peace"
Over the past eight to ten years, Virat Kohli has been one of the most reliable players in all formats. However, his recent form slump has generated a lot of discussion, with both present and former cricketers weighing in on Kohli's recent problems. His place in the Indian team has come under scrutiny as the T20 World Cup approaches later in the year. Sikandar Raza, a Zimbabwean batter, has defended Kohli despite criticism.
What they said
"As much as fitness and xyz were important components of cricket, I think the way he advanced that aspect for future generations to follow is laudable, and people should give him ample credit for it. He is the best all-format player in my opinion, and it has nothing to do with his stats, his accomplishments, his struggles, or his future plans; I'm simply talking generally here "On his YouTube channel, Anis Sajan was told by Raza.
The cricketer, who was born in Pakistan, pleaded with his fellow players not to criticise the 33-year-old batter's performance.
"I don't believe I am qualified or wise enough to counsel a man with more than 20,000 career runs. How should I approach him? I have nothing to say to him. If anything, I can remain silent, expect others to do the same, and let the man to live in peace. Just let him be, and perhaps he'll find his feet soon" he added.
