After a month-long break, former Indian skipper, Virat Kohli made a comeback to international cricket for the Asia Cup and was picked in the playing XI for the much-awaited game against Pakistan on Sunday in Dubai. He gave a glimpse of him returning back to form during his knock of 35 runs in the side’s five-wicket win. Some experts are pleased with the knock and India legend Kapil Dev, who has voiced his opinion on similar lines, gave his verdict on Kohli’s return in the Pakistan tie.

In an interview with ANI, Kapil Dev opined that he remains unfazed over Kohli’s form and was rather happy to see him back in international cricket. He also pointed out that Kohli needs to be more confident about his shots. He further said that Kohli was lucky to have survived that dismissal scare early in his innings when Fakhar Zaman had dropped the golden opportunity after Kohli poked the wider delivery from Naseem Shah towards slip.

Kapil Dev explained, “I am not worried about Virat Kohli’s form but it’s good to see him back. Saw a couple of shots that made an impact, I just want him to be surer about that. He is coming back and looking good. He was lucky to be dropped in the first over but whatever he was playing, he was there. I like his attitude not today but from the last ten years, and that makes him a much bigger player than anybody else.”

Kapil Dev elaborated, “I think, don’t focus on runs for the country but understand that you are representing the country which is much bigger than anything else. He should still feel he is representing the country. No player in every match will get zero but I think with his ability and talent he should not take time to come back into form. He needs just one good inning to be back and I have no doubt about it.”

Virat Kohli will be raring to play a huge knock in the match against Hong Kong, India’s second match in Asia Cup 2022, on Wednesday.
