So Stuart Broad now holds record for must runs conceded in an over in a T20  match as well as test match :P. And that too at such different times in his career - T20 in 2007 when he was starting and in Test match now in 2022 towards Twilight of his career.

 

Pretty good career in between though..

What a waste this Kohli guy has become...

And worst he keeps smiling after every such mistakes to rub it even more, never seen some one fall this bad. 
 

there is a bad patch and then there is a crater where Kohli is currently.

He is not able to come to terms that BCCI caught his nefarious move of leaving T20 captaincy which was just to throw crumbs to Rohit & got responded by BCCI taking ODI cap away.

 

His ego was so badly bruised that he gave up Test cap, only to find himself playing under Rohit in all the formats, absolutely soul-crushing for him.

 

No doubt, life has hit him really hard.

Actually feeling bad for Kohli now. His loss (of form) is our &Indian cricket team's loss. We need such mavericks in the team to psychologically dent the opposition. Hope he regains form soon..

Boom and shami bowled 24 out of the 27 overs today. Crazy. 

It helped with the rain breaks. Quite impressed with how Bumrah has lead on so far. Honestly the bowling was so good I even forgot we have Thakur also to bowl  😂

It's a travesty that Indians never regard their champions. I talk with lots of foreigners on Reddit and they regard him so highly. He has made 70  International centuries and is on no.3 of all time. Still averages 48+ in all formats inspite of his lack of form.  Made this test team what it is and this pace attack what it is. And people make fun of him like he is a Karun Nair.

 

It's on selectors if they can't make him rest or drop for his lack of form. And he dropped a catch which wasn't a sitter, who doesn't.

What traversty, he is the one who acted like a douche bag by acting smart as if he was bigger then the game with all his captaincy antics. He can’t score runs anywhere right now and still being picked up everytime is a testimony that BCCI has still stuck with him. I don’t care what foreigners think, there are only 11 playing positions and there are players who are performing better then him, he is a blocker right now.

 

Has he gone back and played any FC match, has he tried playing county to regain form, he thinks he is in form and he is just a knock away and one day it will come, bowlers have figured him out, he is struggling and he needs to agree to it. We will all be happy the day he gets back to form, but just resting him won’t get him there.

Kohli needs to reinvent his game big time if he wants for play for 2-3 years more. Its clear that he has weaknesses, especially against spin and now with age, its catching upto him.

People are quick to bring up Sachin when Kohli gets talked about. Kohli might as well take inspiration from him as Sachin did change his game multiple times through out due to injuries and age and still continued to score

Exactly, and also not like Indian team is not winning without him, hell one of our best wins this century came when he was not around. He has done great, but if we have to go with past records, let’s bring back Sachin also then 😂😂

 

he has to agree rest is not going to back him in form anymore, that part is done and dusted, he needs to make some adjustments and start scoring big, he is our #4, the most coveted position.

 

commentators are discussing how if India gets root out, they have got half the England team, and for Kohli they are commenting, if Kohli can get back in form soon it will immensely benefit India, the best way to put it in current state.

Agreed.

That's why I said selectors need to grow balls and rest him or drop him for sometime till he gets his mojo back. 

 

Sachin was something else. He and Jimmy are in a league of their own. To play for such a long time and still be on top of your game is 1 in a million. Maybe kohli should spend sometime with him and learn how to make a comeback. Ofcourse by keeping his ego aside which is tough for someone like him. 

 

Anyways, not our headache. I want Sarfraz Khan to get a chance next series. That guy has been rocking Ranji and deserves a chance. Cos Shreyas in SENA country is a big if considering his apparent weakness against short ball. Kohli rested/dropped and Sarfraz at 4. No harm in trying. 

 

Bumrah should be the permanent vice captain now . I don't want Pant to be Captain or Vice captain. Just let him bat cos he is a generational talent and captaincy will definitely screw up his batting style.
