Team India star batsman Virat Kohli is currently going through a poor form in the ongoing T20 World Cup. Kohli has scored just five runs so far in the tournament - 1 against Ireland, 4 against Pakistan and a golden duck against the USA. 

In response to the veteran batsman's indifferent form in the marquee event, former India spinner Harbhajan Singh has refused to criticise Kohli's poor start in the marquee event.

Instead, Bhajji has raised the poor batting conditions at New York's Nassau County International Cricket Stadium. As per the former spinner, it would be unfair to judge a batsman's performance on such a pitch. 

"I do not want to judge anyone on that pitch (New York pitch) as batting was difficult on that pitch. Virat Kohli didn't score runs because the conditions were like that," said Harbhajan. "You cannot judge a player in those conditions," said Harbhajan during a recent interaction.

"Runs are obviously expected from Virat Kohli. We also need to consistently see partnerships that we aren't getting in the first six overs," he added.

Notably, Kohli will get a chance to improve his form ahead of the Super 8 stage, as India move from New York to Lauderhill, Florida.
