Former India wicketkeeper-batsman and selector, Kiran More, has said that the Asia Cup 2022 will be special for modern-day batting great Virat Kohli as he has been out of form for a while and now he needs to make a strong comeback.

Star batter Virat Kohli, who last scored a ton in 2019, has been struggling to make good contributions with the bat in the past few months. In the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, he scored 341 runs at an average of 22.73 and a strike rate of 115.98, including two half-centuries. Also, in the recent all-format tour of England, Kohli registered scores of 11 & 20 in the Edgbaston Test, 1 and 11 in two T20Is, and 16 and 17 in two ODIs.
