Just ahead of the Indian Premier League 2024 season, Harbhajan Singh has made bold remarks about the Indian batting giant Virat Kohli, stating that the greatness of Virat Kohli has been diminished, especially at the fortress of MS Dhoni, MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai.
While Virat Kohli is the batting stalwart of the IPL and also the highest run-scorer in the history of the tournament, it is also a fact that he has failed to make a significant impact in Chepauk, where his strike rate is around 111 and averages just 30.

Overall, Kohli, who hasn’t scored an IPL century at Chepauk, has amassed 985 runs against Chennai Super Kings (CSK) in the Indian Premier League (IPL).

Speaking on Star Sports ahead of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024, here is what Harbhajan Singh said:

“The greatness of Virat has been reduced in terms of his overall performance at that venue. It is a tricky venue to bat, especially as an opening batsman against a sort of weird tennis ball-type bounce.”

“CSK have got the great Ravindra Jadeja bowling stump to stump. He’ll get the oddball to turn and then the oddball to stay low. It’s really tricky,” Harbhajan told Star Sports.

Harbhajan Singh further recommended Kohli to prepare himself for batting through the entire 20 overs if he aims to produce match-winning innings.

“If he’s actually prepared to bat about 20 overs, then he can put together a match-winning performance because two hundreds at the accessible Chinnaswamy do not necessarily guarantee the same at Chepauk,” he said.

Throughout his IPL career, Virat Kohli has amassed a total of 7263 runs in 237 matches, boasting an average of 37.2 and a strike rate of 130. The IPL 2016 season was his best IPL season when he hammered 973 runs in 16 matches, including 4 centuries.
