New Delhi. Team India’s star batsman Virat Kohli was going through bad form in 2022. The IPL season of the right-handed batsman was very bad and he continued to fail in international cricket as well. He was not able to live up to the expectations and was getting out on low scores. Virat Kohli took a six-week break after the India-England Test match in July and returned to international cricket with the Asia Cup. India’s first match was against Pakistan and in this Virat Kohli returned to form. Since then Virat Kohli has regained his form and is performing brilliantly. During the bad phase, Pakistan cricket team captain Babar Azam had a tweet for Virat Kohli. Babar Azam has now revealed why he had tweeted that.
Virat Kohli was struggling to score runs during India’s tour of England. At that time, Pakistan cricket team captain Babar Azam had made a tweet. This tweet went viral on social media. At that time Babar was at the peak of his career and was running in excellent form. He was scoring runs in all the three formats of the game. On July 14, he gave a message to Virat Kohli through Twitter. Babar Azam wrote in the tweet, “This too shall pass. Stay strong.

While replying Virat Kohli had also praised Babar Azam for this tweet. Kohli wrote, “Thank you. Keep shining and keep growing. Best wishes to you. This tweet of Babar Azam had created panic among the cricket world and fans. And now after more than six months, Babar has spoken about his tweet for Kohli.
Babar Azam tweeted for Virat Kohli.
In an interview with ICC Digital Insider, Babar Azam said, “As a player one can go through such times. At that time I thought that if I tweet, maybe it will help someone and give them confidence. See, as a player, you try to support every player in difficult times.
Babar Azam further said, “It is only in difficult times that you come to know what you are thinking about others. At that time I thought that I should do this and maybe something positive will come out of it. Something that can be a plus point.”
After making a spectacular comeback in the second half of 2022, Virat Kohli has done well in 2023 so far. In the seven matches played this year, he has already scored two centuries in ODIs. It is expected that this form of his will remain and will be useful for the team in the ICC ODI World Cup.
