You don’t think he’s out of form at all: Rashid Khan
The premium leg-spinner of Afghanistan, Rashid Khan has shared a few words about Virat Kohli's form in a recent interaction with Sawera Pasha on YouTube. "The kind of shots that he plays, you don't think he's out of form at all.
As per me, he is not out of form. The issue is that there are a lot of expectations from him as people expect him to score a century in every alternate match," Rashid Khan was quoted as saying by CricTracker.
"Even when we look at his Test knocks, he did all the hard work and survived during tough periods and has then gotten out in the 50s or 60s. If it was any other batter, everyone would have said that he was in good form. Kohli has set the bar so high that people now want him just to score hundreds," said Rashid Khan.
