India captain Rohit Sharma commented on the ongoing rough patch of star batter Virat Kohli ahead of their ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024 final against South Africa, scheduled to take place at Kensington Oval, Barbados on June 29.

Kohli has been far from his best in the ongoing tournament and managed to make it into the double digits only once in seven innings.

The right-handed batter, who opened the innings in T20Is only once before the commencement of the T20 World Cup 2024, scored just 75 runs in seven innings at a dismal average of 10.7.

However, India captain Rohit Sharma is unfazed by Virat Kohli’s poor form and shared his optimism that the latter is saving his best for the T20 World Cup 2024 final against South Africa.

“He’s a quality player. Any player can go through that. We do understand his class and his importance in all these big games. Form is never a problem because when you’ve played cricket for 15 years, it isn’t a problem,” Rohit said following India’s semi-final win over England.

“He is looking good, the intent is there. He’s probably saving for the finals,” he added.
