Babar Azam supported Kohli on his poor form, the Pakistani captain said this by tweeting
- Virat Kohli scored only 59 runs in 5 innings on the current tour of England
- Pakistan captain Babar Azam supported Virat Kohli
- Virat has not scored any century since November 2019
Former Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli’s poor form continues. He is proving to be a flop on the current tour of England. After two innings of a Test match, two T20s and now one ODI, he has been able to score only 59 runs in a total of five innings. Often Pakistan’s captain and star batsman Babar Azam is compared with Virat. But Babar respects him a lot, this was also shown in the T20 World Cup 2021 and now where the world is targeting him on Virat’s poor form, Babar has supported him.
Pakistan cricket team captain Babar Azam made a tweet during the Indian team’s second ODI against England. This tweet came at a time when Team India was close to defeat and Virat Kohli once again failed and returned to the pavilion. Babar Azam’s tweet was discussed everywhere after India lost the Lord’s ODI by 100 runs. Babar shared a photo of himself and Virat Kohli during the T20 World Cup 2021 on his official Twitter handle and wrote, ‘This too (time) will pass. Keep yourself strong.
This too shall pass. Stay strong. #ViratKohli pic.twitter.com/ozr7BFFgXt

It is worth noting that the last time India and Pakistan met in the T20 World Cup 2021, where both the players were seen talking and joking with each other very well. After that match, many pictures of both of them also went viral on social media. India had to face defeat in this match for the first time in World Cup history at the hands of Pakistan. Pakistan won this match by 10 wickets.
Virat’s graph fell in the last 32 months
Virat Kohli scored his last century against Bangladesh in November 2019. It was the 70th century of his career.

Talking about his performance during this period, Virat has scored 2537 runs in 78 innings of 67 matches in all formats. During this his average is only 30-32.
