From picking up statistics to talking about Virat’s “high standards”, many fans took to Twitter to support their favourite batsman and diss claims of him being out of form. Have a look:
You can understand the greatness of Virat Kohli from the fact that no one values his half-centuries, If he gets out even after scoring a half century, people reacts as if he is out of form.

Virat Kohli has scored 9 fifties in last 14 ODIs and 5 fifties in last 6 ODIs. Just because he hasn't scored a century in a while, people think he's out of form, but he's doing a great job despite not being at his best.
