Ponting said, “If I were the captain or coach in the Indian team structure, I would try to make his job as easy as possible so that he felt as comfortable as possible and waited for him to get back into the rhythm and run. Start making.

Dubai| Former Australian batsman Ricky Ponting believes that the reason for Virat Kohli’s poor form for a long time is the frequent changes in his batting order and he fears that the star batsman will have to return to his position if he is dropped from the T20 World Cup squad. There may be a problem in getting the place.

Kohli struggled for runs during the Indian Premier League this year and has not scored a century for India in any format for almost three years.

Ponting said instead of frequent changes in Kohli’s place in the playing XI, the Indian team management should give him the confidence to find his momentum.

Former Australia captain Ponting told ‘The ICC Review’, “They should probably try and help him find new ways to return to his form.”

“He is often sent up the batting order in place of someone else, you switch to someone else to try to replace Virat. He has opened the innings, has been batting at number three in the IPL for the last few years and has done the same for India.

Ponting said, “A change in his order will make him feel that people are worried about him and he will become more uncomfortable.” Ponting feels that Kohli should be given a fixed place in the batting order.

He said, “I will take another approach. I would tell him this is your position, you have to bat here, it will not change.” Ponting said that the Indian team management will have to play a big role in Kohli’s return.

He said, “If you drop Virat from the team before the World Cup and there is an effective tournament for the player who comes in his place, then it will be difficult for Virat to come back. ,

Ponting said, “If I were the captain or coach in the Indian team structure, I would try to make his job as easy as possible so that he felt as comfortable as possible and waited for him to get back into the rhythm and run. Start making.

Ponting, who led the side to Australia’s title victories in World Cup 2003 and 2007, feels it would be beneficial to stay with Kohli at the international level as he is still a fearless player against any opposition.

Ponting suggested the Indian selectors to find a top-order spot for Kohli and play the champion batsman at the same spot throughout the T20 World Cup and hope that he regains his form in the knockout stage of the tournament. Ponting believes that Kohli performs best for India when he is comfortable both on and off the field.

“You have to find the best balance for the team. You can’t make a team a team of just one person.
