Virat Kohli has had a difficult time recently, scoring his last international century versus Bangladesh in November 2019. David Warner, who has been chastised for his failure to score runs, is not on this list. In a recent conversation, he lauded Kohli and spoke many good things regarding him.

Warner addressed the influence of a bio-bubble on a cricketer, as well as the fact that Kohli recently had a child. He went on to say that the Indian Test captain had previously played some fantastic innings for the Indian side and had earned the right to fail. According to the Australian opener, additional pressure should not be put on Kohli.

You are allowed to have a rough trot: Warner

“A lot of people talk about Virat Kohli’s form over the last couple of years. We have gone through a pandemic. He has just had a baby. We only see how well he has done. You are allowed to fail. You have earned the right to fail when you are so good at what you do”.

“People say Steve Smith doesn’t score a century in his fourth innings because stats say he scores a century every four innings. He is human. You are allowed to have a rough trot. That is why there are a lot more pressure on those guys. But would not feel the pressure, I guarantee that,” Warner said in an Interaction.

Virat Kohli is presently taking part in a Test series versus South Africa. India won the 1st Test of the series at Centurion under his leadership, becoming the first Asian side to do so. However, he missed the 2nd Test due to an upper back spasm, allowing KL Rahul to fulfill his captaincy debut.

South Africa won the 2nd Test and tied the series. The 3rd and final Test match are set to take place in Cape Town on January 11.

ASHES: Furthermore, David Warner is a member of Australia’s side who defeated England in the Ashes in a record-breaking 12 days. He scored 240 runs at an average of 62 in 3 games and smashed 2 half-centuries. Warner struggled to collect runs in the 4th Test, amassing a total of 33 runs in both innings. For England to win this match, Australia has set an objective of 388 runs.
