Ricky Ponting said, ‘I know very well that he has some challenges in front of him. His days are going very rough. I have seen many great players going through such phases in this game. Be it batsman or bowler. Everyone goes through such a phase.

Ponting believes that if Kohli is out of the upcoming T20 World Cup, then it is very difficult for him to return to the team again. He said, ‘If he is kept out of the T20 World Cup, then it will be difficult for him to return.’
