With India and Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper Virat Kohli going through a rough patch currently in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2017, Virender Sehwag has said that it is a normal for any top player to have a dip in form. However, Sehwag is confident that Kohli is strong enough to make a comeback with great form at the right time. Kohli has so far managed to score just 250 runs from the nine matches he has played in the IPL 2017, while he gets set to lead the Indian side in the ICC Champions Trophy 2017 in England from June 1. India are the defending champions in the mini World Cup. Virender Sehwag: Players carry responsibility of keeping cricket clean
“It [bad patch] happens with every player. Even if you look at the great Sachin Tendulkar, he hasn’t played the same [way] every year. Even your [media] questions keep changing time to time. When time changes, form also changes. The hallmark of a good player is who can come out of bad form and Virat knows very well how to come back into good form,” said Sehwag in a session organised by 92.7 BIG FM, according to PTI. Speaking on Kings XI Punjab’s qualification chances for the IPL 2017 playoffs, he said, “Our qualification depends on other teams. If Rising Pune Supergiant lose and Sunrisers Hyderabad lose, or KKR [Kolkata Night Riders] lose then we have a chance to qualify. We have to maintain the run-rate and only then we can qualify,” he said. ICC Champions Trophy 2017: India’s chances do not depend on Virat Kohli alone, says Kapil Dev
Earlier, Sehwag also asserted that illegal activities like betting and corruption cannot be removed from cricket until players themselves become responsible.
