Former India left-arm seamer Ashish Nehra has backed Virat Kohli and stated that he deserves extra chances despite consistent failures because of his exceptional performances in the past. Kohli has been going through a low phase in recent seasons and has not scored an international century since November 2019. He failed in the two T20Is that he played in against England before missing the first ODI at The Oval due to a groin injury.
Former India pace bowler Ashish Nehra feels that Indian captain Virat Kohli should have refrained from stating that 'ODIs are not important' after the series loss in New Zealand. It may be recalled while India whitewashed the Kiwis in the T20Is, the failed to win a single match in the ODI series and Tests that followed.
