The Australian opener David Warner has come up with a very interesting piece of advice for an out-of-form Virat Kohli and Warner’s advice to Kohli is not related to cricket at all.
David Warner was recently on a show called Sports Yaari, alongside his Delhi Capitals teammates Axar Patel and Anrich Nortje, and he was asked by the presenter that his form during the last IPL was a bit shaky as well and a lot of people were saying that he might be reaching the last stages of his career.
But, then Warner went into the T20 World Cup and he destroyed almost all the bowling attacks he came up against and won the tournament for Australia. The left-hander was also declared the man of the tournament in the T20 World Cup after having a very torrid time in the IPL for his old team SRH.
“Form can go up and down, but class isn’t lost, it is permanent,” says David Warner
The presenter of the show asked David Warner what advice would he want to give to Virat Kohli because Kohli is also almost in the same situation as he was a year back. The former Indian captain is struggling with fluency and the runs are not flowing off his bat as consistently as they used to flow in the past.
David Warner had a funny answer to that question. He said my advice to Virat Kohli is “have some more kids and enjoy love”. Obviously, Warner said that in a very light manner, but then he also went on to insist that the form of a player is only temporary and what is permanent is the class of a player.
If a player has got class, and everyone around the world knows that Virat Kohli has got a lot of class with the bat, it can’t be lost overnight. The form can go up and down and sometimes, the downward curve of the form might be a bit longer before it starts going up again, but the class of the player remains there.
