India vs South Africa: According to Sanjay Bangar, Virat Kohli is in the midst of a lean period. Also, any other great batter and the possibility of a new version of India’s hitting mainstay. Kohli’s most recent century came against Bangladesh in the Eden Gardens pink-ball Test. Kohli has scored 599 runs in 13 Test matches since that knock. With a score of 26.04, it’s a disappointment. On the Star Sports show Game Plan, during a discussion. Bangar was questioned if Virat Kohli’s 57-inning unbeaten streak would come to an end. In the Test series with South Africa, I’m hoping for an international century.
“Please don’t say that time and again because I have said earlier as well that those are 57 innings including all formats. If you just look at the Test innings that he has played, the double hundred that he got against South Africa, it was in Pune I think, after that the run of hundreds has dried up. So it’s been 22 or 23 innings,” Sanjay Bangar says.
India vs South Africa: Furthermore, Sanjay Bangar added that even the likes of Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid. They are had to endure a barren run in their careers.

“Even greats like Sachin Tendulkar and Rahul Dravid have gone through such a phase wherein they haven’t scored a hundred for a long time. But it doesn’t really mean that in the interim they haven’t contributed to the team’s cause,” Sanjay Bangar said.
Lastly, Virat Kohli has crossed the 50-run mark in Tests on five events since his last Test century. This includes a couple of fifties in the away Test series against England earlier this year. Sanjay Bangar believes Kohli could take his game to lofty heights. If he just sticks to his processes.
India vs South Africa: “Yes, he is attempting to achieve it. I just believe that if he can calm himself down and not really run after it, not get desperate for it, you could see Virat Kohli 3.0 giving us great happiness and satisfaction as to how he takes the batting to a whole new level,” Sanjay Bangar also said.
