Former India head coach Ravi Shastri said that Virat Kohli needs just one innings to get back to his old form and concern around his form will end if he manages to hit a fifty in the first match of the Asia Cup 2022 as well. Kohli will return to action after a five-week break when India takes on arch-rival Pakistan in their opening fixture of the Asia Cup on August 28. Notably, Kohli last played in the England tour, after which he has been away from the game as well.

“I haven’t spoken to Virat Kohli recently but the ‘big guys’ always wake up at the right time. The downtime for Kohli was good before the Asia Cup gave him a good chance to reflect. If he manages to get a fifty in the match against Pakistan, mouths will be shut. One innings can make a difference. He needs one innings to get back because the hunger is undiminished. What’s happened in the past is history. Remember public memory is very short,” Ravi Shastri said in a presser arranged by Star Sports ahead of the Asia Cup.

“There is no Indian cricketer who is more fitter than Kohli. He’s a machine and if he manages to get his mind right, for him it is a matter of just 1 innings to come back into form,” Shastri further added.

Virat Kohli had earlier shared that spending time with his family and travelling has helped him a lot after hectic seasons. He has also taken breaks in between series in the ongoing calendar year, having played only 4 T20Is out of India’s 21 so far in the World Cup year as well.

“Kohli is the fittest player in the Indian team and nobody can match Virat Kohli’s work ethic the way he trained. He is a machine. No question, he will definitely come back in his best form. His hunger and passion are unbelievable,” Ravi Shastri concluded.
