Aakash Chopra says Virat Kohli is back in the Fab Four. “It was about the runs at that time, in that period of two years, but he is back again,” Chopra remarked.
Former Indian cricketer Aakash Chopra praised Virat Kohli and verified his return to the elite ‘Fab-4’ of Test cricket. The anticipation grows as India prepares to play England in a thrilling five-match Test series at home. Kohli, a key member of India’s 16-man squad for the series, is ready to demonstrate his abilities. The first match, on January 25, at the Rajiv Gandhi International Stadium in Hyderabad, promises to be exciting.
Kohli, Australia’s Steve Smith, England’s Joe Root, and New Zealand’s Kane Williamson, together known as the Fab-4, are renowned in Test cricket. Chopra emphasized Kohli’s extraordinary record of 8,848 runs in 113 Test matches, with a superb average of 49.15, including 30 fifties, 29 centuries, and seven double hundreds. The sporting world awaits the spectacle, and the return of the elegant batter to the Fab-4 heightens the enthusiasm for both fans and think tanks.
“Yours truly also revealed that he is no longer a member of the Fab 4. He is now, by the way. It was about the runs at the time, in that two-year stretch, but he’s back now. Steve Smith has dropped out. Kane Williamson is also going 50/50, but this man is still there. He was there back then and has returned now,” Chopra claimed on his YouTube channel.
Chopra glorifies Virat Kohli’s comeback
The cricketer turned commentator added a poetic touch to the right-handed batter’s story, emphasizing how the maestro’s comeback adds a layer of beauty to his cricketing journey. Virat Kohli, who had gone nearly three years without scoring an international century, returned triumphantly. His outstanding performance as the leading run-scorer in the 2023 ODI World Cup was an exciting chapter in his comeback story.
“The way he made a comeback has added to the beauty of his story. It appeared that everything was settled, and you went on to win the World Cup and be named Player of the Tournament. You reinvented the wheel once more and reignited that passion,” Chopra said.
