ACE India batter Virat Kohli is going through the worst phase of his career as his bat has refused to speak for a long time now. On Thursday (14), the 33-year-old former India captain left his praying fans dejected once again as he could manage only 16 runs while India needed him to chase a target of 247 in the second one-day international (ODI) against England at the iconic venue of Lord’s.

However, despite the low, Kohli still made it to the social media accounts of the Lord’s Cricket Ground, not with his runs but the flamboyance while he walked out to bat from the dressing room after India lost their captain Rohit Sharma early. There was no sign of negativity ever in his body language as Kohli came down the stairs and was even seen popping up his the collar of his India jersey. The sight was breathtaking but the promise of Kohli hitting back form on the ground did not last long.

Kohli is having a silent tour of England till now and with the ODI series levelled at 1-1. He now has one game left — the series-deciding one — in Manchester on Sunday (17).
With his name off the list of India players doing the tour of the West Indies next, Kohli’s international lifeline seems to be getting tighter with each failure from here on and like the millions of his fans, the maestro will hope to regain his ground sooner. gust.
