Fans urge Kohli to change batting position as form falters in T20 World Cup 2024

Team India registered another impressive victory in the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 by defeating co-hosts USA at the Nassau County International Cricket Stadium. With this win, India continued their unbeaten streak in the 20-team tournament, having previously triumphed over Ireland and Pakistan. This latest victory also secured India’s place in the Super 8 stage of the competition. India has one remaining league game against Canada on June 15.

Virat Kohli’s struggles continue amid team’s success

Despite the team’s overall success, Virat Kohli’s poor form has been a cause for concern among fans and analysts. Kohli, who opened the innings alongside captain Rohit Sharma in all three matches, has managed to score only 5 runs in the tournament so far. He scored 1 run against Ireland, 4 runs against Pakistan, and was dismissed for a duck against the USA.

Stellar IPL form fails to translate

Kohli’s struggles in the World Cup are particularly surprising given his outstanding performance in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024. Opening for Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB), Kohli amassed 741 runs in 15 games at an average of 61.75. However, he has been unable to replicate this form on the international stage.
