Indian cricket team’s star batsman Virat Kohli’s Border-Gavaskar Trophy has not gone well so far. He has proved to be a complete flop in all the three matches of the Test series against Australia. In 5 innings of the series, only 111 runs have come out of his bat. Now there are expectations from the last test that maybe his bat will work in it. For this one will have to wait for a few days and in the meantime Kohli reached Ujjain near Indore to visit the Mahakaleshwar temple. Here his pictures started coming from the Mahakaleshwar temple, while an old statement of his also came into the limelight again.
In the last about 6-7 months, as much discussion has been gathered by Virat Kohli because of his good or bad performance on the field, as much discussion has been gathered by Kohli from visiting different temples of the country. One reason for these discussions is Kohli’s seven year old statement. It is about 2016, when Kohli was raining runs in the T20 World Cup. During that time, in a press conference, Kohli was asked by a journalist whether he does prayer to deal with pressure matches, then Kohli had said- ‘Do I look like worship?
Continuously visiting temples
There was a lot of discussion on this statement of Kohli then and many did not like his attitude either. Seven years later, the situation is completely different today. In the last few months, Virat Kohli is continuously visiting temples. Before the start of the Test series, Kohli went to Vrindavan with Anushka Sharma and visited Neem Karoli Baba. Before that he had visited the Samadhi of Swami Dayanand Ji Maharaj in Rishikesh. Last year too, after the T20 World Cup, Kohli visited Baba Neem Karoli at Kainchi Dham near Nainital in November.
Bad form changed Kohli?
Now what has changed in 6 years, that Kohli, who used to stay away from worship, suddenly started visiting temples as soon as he got every opportunity. Apparently the last three years have not been good for Kohli on the cricket field. For a time he was the biggest name in world cricket. Team India had captains in every format but all this changed in recent times. Not only the runs dried up from his bat, but the captaincy was snatched away, he got embroiled in controversies. Kohli’s fans are also considering this as the reason for the change.
Anushka also has a big role
By the way, not only bad form, but his marriage with Anushka Sharma is also being considered as an important reason for this. Both were married in 2017. Just before marriage, both had visited Dayanand Maharaj’s ashram in Rishikesh itself. In such a situation, the effect of Anushka is also being considered in this. Anyway, Kohli has mentioned Anushka’s influence on him many times in his interview and has told how the Bollywood star played a big role in making him calm in life.
