Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) coach Mike Hesson believes a big inning is around the corner for Virat Kohli, who has been struggling to make an impact in the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022 season.

Kohli has managed only one fifty in 13 innings this season and scored three ducks despite playing with new-found freedom having relinquished Bangalore captaincy last year.

"It is not a technical thing. He looked in really good touch today. He was unfortunate. I thought we were going to see something special. Virat is as frustrated as anyone but we know that the epic one is around the corner," said Hesson.

"We have got a huge game coming up. So there is no reason why it won't be in a few days' time,"

Hesson expect Kohli to come good form in the must-win clash for a Bangalore team chasing their maiden IPL title.

"He looked in good touch, he was aggressive, and he is doing everything off the park as well in terms of making sure he prepares well. I thought today was going to be his day but once again," he added.
