Sachin Tendulkar's words on Virat Kohli's poor form

Sachin Tendulkar's words on Virat Kohli's poor form

In the last five innings in English, India Captain Virat Kohli managed 44, 13, 0, 42, and 20. Moreover, it has been almost two years that Kohli hasn't scored a century in international cricket. Meanwhile, master blaster Sachin Tendulkar had words over Kohli's dry spell.

The marvelous win over England in the second Test at Lord's was a statement of Team India's supremacy in the most extended format of the game. After lagging in the match until the penultimate day, the Indian team turned things around and conned the hosts, who seemed in complete control. India beat England by 151 runs to go up 1-0 in the five-match test series.

However, among India's incredible run in Test cricket, Kohli's poor form remains one of the biggest concerns. In the last five innings in English, the Indian skipper managed 44, 13, 0, 42, and 20. Moreover, it has been almost two years that Kohli hasn't scored a century in international cricket.

Meanwhile, master blaster Sachin Tendulkar had his say over Kohli's dry spell. In a conversation with news agency PTI, the batting legend said. The form is just a state of mind and body working in harmony.

Sachin quoted as saying.

"Virat Kohli hasn't had a great begin. It is the mind that lead you to technical errors and if the start isn't good, you start thinking about many things. Because fear levels are high, you tend to over compensate for your movements. When a batsman isn't in great form you either go too far across or don't move your feet at all. That happens with everyones form is also your state of mind along with the body working in harmony,"

Sachin further heaped praise on the 100-run stand between Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane on the fourth day of the Lord's Test that kept India in the race.

 Sachin said.

"They played a very critical role considering that we were efficaciously 28 for 3 when they came together. Two more prompt wickets and we would have been 60 for 5 and variation would have been completely different. They stabilised the innings,"

"The idea was to do what was great for the team and they did proved it. While doing so, the rest of the things get taken care of. In a tight situation like this, ideally you would want all your batsmen to chip in but that is always not possible," he added.
