India's star batsman  Virat Kohli finds himself in the middle of a rare slump in form in the ongoing T20 World Cup with three single-digit scores in three matches.

In response, former India great Sunil Gavaskar has weighed in on Kohli's unusual string of low scores. The Little Master is confident that Kohli will hit the ground running sooner rather than later.

"The biggest motivation for any player is to win matches, especially when you are playing for your country. He has done so well for India over the years and won so many games. I think he recognises that. We are in the early phases of the tournament. There are Super 8s, semi-finals, and hopefully the final. All he needs to do is show patience and faith in himself, which I think he has plenty," said Gavaskar during a recent interaction.

"When you get three low scores, it doesn't mean he is not batting well. Sometimes you get good deliveries. Any other day, the ball would've gone wide or over the slip for a boundary, today it didn't. So, there's nothing to worry about. We have to show faith in him. Much believe that he is going to come good, sooner rather than later," the legendry batsman added.
