In international cricket, former New Zealand batter Ross Taylor became the first player in the world to play 100 matches in all formats. It was achieved in February 2020. Kohli has played 99 T20s so far along with 102 Tests and 262 ODIs. However, it is important to note Kohli will become the second Indian player to play in 100 T20 matches. Rohit has already played 132 matches in the shorter format.

Asia Cup 2022 LIVE: Will King Kohli return to form?

  • The first thing that everyone including Sunil Gavaskar has pointed out is the lack of self-confidence.
  • Kohli hasn’t looked his self since the pandemic-induced break.
  • The six months without any cricket or practice hurt him the most as he lost his rhythm.
  • To get out of the slump, Kohli tried to be more attacking.
  • But instead, he suffered. A flurry of golden ducks included playing shots early with timings all over the place.
  • While he showed glimpses of his class, he failed to sustain that for long.
  • He stepped down from all captaincy duties to deal with his form but that did not help in anyway.
  • Instead, he failed to get his head position right while trying to play his signature cover drives and more often than not gave away his wicket.
  • The non-stop nature of cricket since then hasn’t even given Kohli time to rectify his mistakes.
  • He decided to take a month-long break to get things in order before the Asia Cup 2022.

The 100th match is always a huge occasion. This one is ultra-special for the Indian batter as it is the mother of all cricket matches – India vs Pakistan. He would be eager to make that extra special with a good contribution and help India win.

Unfortunately, things have not been good for Kohli in the last few months. Runs have dried up from his bat. He has not scored an international century for 1000 days. Such kind of a stat is surprising with the player having delivered big time against all opposition and all kinds of surfaces.

The former India captain is expected to bat at number three in the upcoming Asia Cup match on August 28. He will hope that the openers – KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma – deliver their A game at the top. In doing so, it will reduce the pressure on Kohli.

Pakistan might be missing their number one bowler in the form of Shaheen Afridi, but that does not mean Kohli will have an easy outing. Pakistan will be equally pumped and end on the winning side.

With Kohli having a good record against Pakistan in the shorter format, Kohli will take that kind of confidence into the Asia Cup. If Kohli fires, that would spell wonders for the Indian team as they are currently preparing for the T20 World Cup in October in Australia as well.
