Sitting in the dressing room won’t get your form back, says Sunil Gavaskar

Gavaskar Opens Up on Virat Kohli’s Form: Virat Kohl’s struggles with the bat continued as he recorded his third golden duck in this season so far and the people want him to take a break.

Kohli has so far made 216 runs in 12 innings with a struggling 58 remained his best score till now. On Sunday, he witnessed his third golden duck after being dismissed by Jagadeesha Suchith on the very first ball of the first over.

The former Indian captain Sunil Gavaskar expressed his thoughts on the same and said that sitting out won’t help to regain form.

“As long as the break doesn’t mean he is missing India matches. India matches should be the No. 1 priority. It’s as simple as that. I think the thing is that if you don’t play, how do you get your form back? Sitting in the change room, it’s not going to get your form back. The more you play, the more chances you have of getting your form back,” Gavaskar said on Star Sports.

“You ask all over India, you want everybody in India who follows the game will say ‘we want the form for India’. Right? So you can’t take a break for an India game. You want Kohli to start scoring runs for India. All of us want that. All of us want to see him get back to scoring big runs again,” he added.

In his 12 innings so far, Kohli has recorded three golden ducks, three single-digit scores, and just one half-century.

On Sunday, he became the 13th player to out on a golden duck three times in an IPL season. The others were Rohit Sharma, Nitish Rana, Suresh Raina, Amit Mishra, Rashid Khan, and Ashish Nehra.

This is the second time in this season that he was out on a golden duck against Sunrisers Hyderabad. The other time he got out on zero was against Lucknow Super Giants.
