New Delhi. It has been a long time since Virat Kohli scored a century in international cricket. Virat, the former captain of the Indian cricket team, had scored two consecutive centuries in the ODI series against West Indies for the last time in the year 2019. After that in the same year, he scored a century in the Day / Night Test played against Bangladesh in Kolkata in the same year. But since then he has failed to score a century in international cricket. Virat has scored 43 centuries in ODIs. For the last 32 months, he is waiting for a century. Former Pakistan captain Rashid Latif believes that Virat Kohli was the one to easily break the record of former cricketer Sachin Tendulkar. But it became difficult due to his poor form.

Speaking on his official YouTube channel Caught Behind, former Pakistan captain Rashid Latif said, “There are ups and downs in every player’s career. Some come out of this quickly and some take time. There is more pressure on players like Virat because they are the center of attraction. Many people including Ravi Shastri have suggested him to rest but Virat Kohli knows, when he was in form, he used to score a lot of runs. Virat was easily going to break Sachin’s record of centuries, but poor form made it difficult.

Kohli’s poor form at its peak

The former Pakistan captain believes, “When Virat Kohli was scoring century after century, he was at the peak of his good form. But now that he is battling with poor form, he is also at its peak. He further said, “At one time it seemed that he would easily break Sachin Tendulkar’s record. Because he has scored so many centuries. But the fall in form has made it difficult.”
