Veteran player Varun Aaron has added that Virat Kohli is known for silencing his critics whenever questions are asked about his performances. He gave the example of his performances in IPL 2024, saying that no one will question his strike rate anymore. Kohli headed into the 2024 T20 World Cup in sublime form after winning the Orange Cap in this season’s IPL. However, he managed only five runs in three innings in India’s group-stage games in New York as well.

During a discussion on Star Sports, Aaron said, “Virat gives answers whenever questions are raised about his performance. If you see in the IPL, there were a lot of questions raised on his strike rate, and after that, Virat made such a comeback that he silenced everyone. I feel no one will ever talk about his strike rate. Similarly, if you see now, he remained cold in the first two or three matches. It can happen with any batter on such wickets. However, people need to understand that Virat just needs to put a switch on and he starts scoring runs. Virat will definitely be disappointed with his last three matches but come the West Indies, Virat will look a different batter when he plays on such wickets.”

However, Virat Kohli scored one and four against Ireland and Pakistan respectively in India’s first two games and then was dismissed for a golden duck against the USA.

“Tell me one thing, on which surface and in which country does Virat have a bad average? It’s a fact that Virat Kohli scores runs wherever he goes, and he scores runs with a certain aggression and adapts according to the conditions. Virat Kohli’s biggest plus point is that he doesn’t play a similar kind of game everywhere. He adapts to the conditions and that is the biggest hallmark of a great batter,” Aaron concluded.
