Irfan Pathan on Why India Needs Virat Kohli “In Top Form” for T20 World Cup
“So Indian team needs Virat Kohli in top form. He comes back from Asia Cup in top form, I think it’s a win-win situation for Virat Kohli and the India team.” He added.
He was asked, what if Kohli doesn’t perform in the Asia Cup. Pathan answered, “Indian team has so many options, they need to choose from the options. Because you need someone going into the World Cup in good form. You cannot not have form in the World Cup. You can’t find form in the World Cup.” Pathan further said that he is confident that Virat Kohli will perform in the Asia Cup.
