New Delhi: When Team India embarked on England tour, Virat Kohli – the poster boy in India, was the most trusted and talked about batsman in the new look and young Indian side. But alas, contrary to the expectations, he failed miserably.

 


He used to be the main and biggest strength of the middle order but his failure in all four tests can cost India this series. Kohli's story on this tour has been quite similar to the Australian tour in 2011 where he looked in the zone to score big but couldn't manage until the Adelaide Test where he struck a spectacular century that gave his career a different turn and meaning. After that innings, Kohli evolved as a batsman and emerged as a new sensation in world cricket, but somehow his rising graph nosedived on this tour.
