Newshub18:Kohli needs to shine in World Cup to increase TRP’
In the beginning, the discussion was about Virat Kohli’s century-drought. Later, his runs started decreasing with the bat as well. Naturally, Kohli’s form has been talked about at this time. There was even talk about Kohli’s place in the team.
At that time, he did not even hold a bat for a month. He later said that he did not enjoy the game at all. However, the latest Asia Cup has again changed the reckoning with Kohli.
Kohli was the second highest run scorer in the Asia Cup. He scored 276 runs in 5 matches with 1 century and 2 fifties. The much-talked-about strike rate was also pretty good—147.59. After that, he also played in the third and final T20I against Australia at home, scoring 63 runs from 48 balls. Kohli has returned to form at a time when the World Cup is knocking on the door.
Millions of Indian fans will naturally look at this Kohli’s bat in the World Cup. Again, not India fans, but Kohli’s fans – many will sit in front of the TV just to watch him bat. Because if Kohli does well, not only India’s chances of winning the title will increase, but the TRP of television will also increase, thinks former England spinner Graeme Swann.
“India needs Virat Kohli to do well,” Swann told Newseight Cricket. I am working in television, Kohli also needs good to increase TRP of television. (Mahendra Singh) Same thing happened with Dhoni. If they do not play well, the TRP will decrease.
In almost every World Cup, India is a big contender to win the title. But for some reason it never wins in the end, no matter which version it is. After the 2013 Champions Trophy, India has yet to win a title in any global tournament.
This time under whom India wants to win the World Cup title, Rohit Sharma does not have consistent big runs with the bat. But Swann is not at all worried about Rohit, ‘Rohit will get a century in the T20 World Cup. I have no doubt about it. I am not worried about Rohit at all, Rohit is the right person to lead India, and without him India are putting up big scores.
