As India’s modern batting great, Virat Kohli will return to competitive cricket at the Asia Cup 2022, he will be aiming to make a strong comeback when India will be locking horns with Pakistan in their opening match of the continental tournament on August 28.
Although Kohli is known for his aggression and intensity, which often rubs on his teammates, he revealed the mental health that forced him to take a break from the sport recently. Kohli has been witnessing a rough patch with the bat, managing to score just 76 runs across one Test match, two T20Is, and two ODIs against England in July 2022. He batted with intent but failed to convert his starts into big ones.
