Mohammed Shami has come to the Support of Virat Kohli, who has been chastised for failing to score a century in international cricket since November 2019.
Virat Kohli has recently come under fire for not having scored a century in international cricket since November 22, 2019, when he smashed his 70th century against Bangladesh in Kolkata.
Many have questioned whether Kohli’s best days are behind him. But the swashbuckling batter was backed up by teammate Mohammed Shami, who slammed his detractors. “So what if he (Kohli) doesn’t get a century? A century does not define his stature as a player. It’s not that he hasn’t scored any runs “, said the Team India pacer in an interview with India.com.

“He has consistently scored in the fifties in recent years, and there is no reason to believe otherwise. A fifty or a sixty is also a score, and as long as it benefits the team, there is no reason to be upset.”

In December of last year, the Indian cricket board named Rohit Sharma as the full-time white-ball captain.
Shami, along with Jasprit Bumrah, rose to prominence under Kohli’s leadership. Shami referred to his teammate as “a bowler’s captain” after praising his leadership abilities.
“Kohli’s energy is contagious, and it spreads to the rest of the team. He is the captain of the bowlers and has always given us the freedom to express ourselves. He would always listen to our suggestions and ask for alternatives “, he explained.
“We’ve spent a lot of time together, and there have been many memorable moments. It will always be with me, and it is difficult to pick or choose any particular instance “, he went on to say.
