KL Rahul On Concerns About Virat Kohli’s Form

Kl Rahul hit back hard at critics as he defended an under-scanner Virat Kohli. He said,” We don’t really give much importance to comments. It doesn’t really affect a player, especially a world-class player like Virat will not be affected by what people are saying on the outside. He has had a little break & he is working on his game.”

“When I was injured and home for 2 months, I was watching him on TV, didn’t feel like he looked out of form. Standards he has set for himself,he hasn’t been able to get that much.I’m sure he’s hungry to win matches for the country. That’s what he has done throughout his career,” he added.
