It’s time for Virat Kohli to deliver big: Salman Butt.

Virat Kohli has only scored two fifties in his last 10 innings in the longest version of the game.

In the midst of all the uncertainty surrounding Indian cricket right now. A vital series against South Africa is poised to begin.

However, with Rohit Sharma, the new red-ball vice-captain. Ruled out of the Test series due to a hamstring injury, the Kohli-led team has already suffered a big setback, even before the series begins.

The fact that the opener has been one of India’s greatest batsmen in recent Tests should not be overlooked. As a result, it is now up to the skipper to deliver against the Proteas. Salman Butt, a former Pakistan cricketer, believes it is past time for the 33-year-old to start delivering.

On his YouTube channel, he expressed his belief that, in the absence of Sharma. It is more vital for India’s captain to make large runs in the longer format of the game. Despite his recent poor record, the former Pakistan skipper believes Kohli would have to produce outstanding batting performances this time.

“In the absence of the experienced Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli’s job as captain and as a player has become even more essential. “Given his present form, it’s past time for him to deliver big,” Salman Butt remarked.

Kohli was replaced as India’s ODI captain by Rohit Sharma earlier this month. “Both Kohli and the BCCI have handled their problems correctly. Many things might be thrown under the rug if he performs well and wins the series. He said, “That’s how it works.” As a result, he believed that a series victory would assure that the entire disaster would be forgotten.

India, on the other hand, has yet to win a Test series in the rainbow nation in the last 29 years.
