'This too shall pass, stay strong'; Babar Azam comes out in support of Kohli 

ss

KARACHI: Pakistan captain Babar Azam has come out in support of star Indian batter Virat Kohli after the latter's dip in form.

Babar took to his Twitter and wrote, "This too shall pass. Stay strong. #ViratKohli," along with a photo of him and Kohli.


After missing the first ODI against England with a groin injury, Kohli made just 16 in the second match, which India lost by 100 runs at Lord's.

India's T20I squad to take on the West Indies is also missing his name, with Jasprit Bumrah and Yuzvendra Chahal rested for the same tour.

With a T20 World Cup around the corner and World Test Championship points needed to keep up in a race for next year's final, Kohli's place in the team is being debated by fans and former legends. However, he has the support of Babar Azam.

Making international centuries in recent series against Australia and the West Indies, as well as a T20I half-century against Australia in Lahore last month, Babar is top of the list in the ICC batting rankings for both ODI and T20Is, and fourth in Test cricket.

Earlier in the week, Kohli also found support from captain Rohit Sharma, who stood up for his teammate ahead of the England ODIs.
