Kohli also struggled to keep up with his form in his stint with Royal Challengers Bangalore in the last edition of Indian Premiere League. One of the most loved cricketer had to go through lots of challenges during the past few years as he stepped down captaincy and later carried the brunt of the team’s performance many times.

To people’s dismay, Kohli was expected to perform better after being relieved from Indian captaincy which would have given him the time to recalibrate himself and revive his form. But seems like all the outside noise and criticism has finally taken over his mind.

However, with this new video Virat looks sharper and in a better state of mind, showing that his heart and mind are in the right place.

The 15th edition of the Asia Cup starts on 27th August and India is set to clash with their arch-rival Pakistan in a much-anticipated clash in UAE, Dubai. The 15-member Indian squad announced by the BCCI is as follows:

Rohit Sharma (C), KL Rahul (VC), Virat Kohli, Surya Kumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant (Wk), Deepak Hooda, Dinesh Karthik (Wk), Hardik Pandya, Ravindra Jadeja, Ravichandran Ashwin, Yuzvendra Chahal, Ravi Bishnoi, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Arshdeep Singh and Avesh Khan.

They always play victim card: Here’s what Ravichandran Ashwin said on Deepti Sharma’s run out at Lords

Deepti Sharma’s run out of Charlie Dean in the third India women-England women ODI at Lord’s on September 24 is still being discussed by the fans and pundits, who are still debating whether this dismissal is in ‘spirit of cricket’.

Ashwin, who had also run-out Jos Buttler during the 2019 Indian Premier League in the same fashion, spoke in detail on the subject on his YouTube channel on Sunday.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, Ashwin tore through Deepti Sharma’s critics and called them out for controlling the narratives and playing the victim card. He sees this particular mode of dismissal as bowlers’ revolution, he said.

Ashwin said initially, most of the world saw Sharma’s actions as a crime but the opinion is changing now, there’s still a section of people who are resisting. In the beginning, the whole world saw it that way. But now, most of them have started realising that the bowlers didn’t commit any crime there, he said.

The team India spinner also said many of them have started asking why you are asking questions to the innocent instead of asking the person who should be guilty. Only a certain section of the people seems to have a problem with this, he said.

Deepti Sharma’s controversial run-out reignited the debate on the undefined spirit of cricket and the morality of running out a non-striker before bowling the ball, despite the latter being a clearly-defined law in the International Cricket Council’s books.
