Dravid backs Virat Kohli despite a century drought

Dravid backs Virat Kohli despite a century drought: Rahul Dravid, India’s head coach, claimed Virat Kohli is “doing what he has to do” to regain form. Dravid said he only expects “match-winning contributions” from Kohli, not hundreds. He stated Kohli’s form isn’t from lack of drive.

“I dispute that he’s above 30. He’s probably about 30 “Dravid stated before the delayed fifth Test against England.

“He’s fit. He’s one of the hardest workers I’ve met. His appetite. His approach in caring for oneself, preparation, and the manner he performed at Leicester, batting in such circumstances, and hitting 50, 60, were all impressive “Dravid.

Kohli scored 33 and 67 in India’s tour game against Leicestershire.

“He wanted to face Bumrah and others. I believe he’s doing everything perfectly. He’s taking steps to recover “Dravid.

“Players experience these periods. Honesty doesn’t need motive. Virat isn’t unmotivated. This happens sometimes. Sometimes you bat well…not it’s so much about hitting three figures, but even a 70 on a tough track in Cape Town was a terrific effort “.

Kohli hit 79 at Cape Town during India’s South Africa tour.

Dravid: “It wasn’t a three-figure score, but it was nice.”

“A player like him, the bar he established, the amount of hundreds he achieved, people just consider hundred as a success,” he added of Kohli.

“We expect match-winning contributions from him, whether it’s a 50 or 60 on that wicket. Maybe tomorrow’s wicket, a 60 or 70, will win the match, or we may need a huge score from him. Our attention isn’t on three figures and if he gets it “Dravid.
