Having last scored a ton in November 2019 in Kolkata, Kohli has now gone on 1000+ days without getting to the three-figure mark. Speaking at an interaction on the sidelines of a media event in Kolkata, Ganguly admitted that Kohli needs to score runs for himself. He said:

“He needs to score runs not only for India but for himself. Hopefully, it will be a good season for him. We all are confident that he’ll come back,”

He added: “He’s a very big player, there for a long time. I know he has his own formula to score runs. It’s ot possible that players of his stature can’t have such a long lean patch, I know he will definitely score runs. If he was not a great player, he would not have scored so many runs for so long,”
