Virat Kohli, the former captain of India, said that he was a little desperate and upset during his recent dry spell. The star batter also said that this changed how he treated his family and close friends.
Kohli admitted that he might have been trying too hard to make a change instead of recognising that he wasn’t in the best shape. Then, during the short break he had before the 2022 Asia Cup, he decided he needed to work on himself, which turned out to be a great choice.
Virat Kohli told Suryakumar Yadav about his hard time in a video posted by BCCI. What he said was:
“He realized that, because of his wants, he was a long way from my cricket. He realized he have to be honest with himself. He had to accept that he was the worst player around if that was the case.” He was getting very irritable and short-tempered, which wasn’t fair to Anushka Sharma and his loved ones who are always there for me. So he had to take responsibility and figure out what was going on.”
Virat Kohli’s valuable advice, The break did help Kohli, who scored the most runs in both the Asia Cup and the T20 World Cup that came after it. The former captain of India also broke his “century jinx,” and he has now scored two ODI hundreds in a row.
Kohli learned a very important lesson from the change in his form and luck, which he also shared with the crowd. In the above conversation with Suryakumar Yadav, he said:
“When I got back from the Asia Cup feeling very calm, I started to enjoy practise and hitting, which is how I have always been.”
So, if you’re getting desperate, I’d say to take two steps back instead of getting closer and closer to your goal, which will only get farther away.”
Kohli hit 113 runs in just 87 balls in the first ODI against Sri Lanka on January 10. This was his 45th century in this format and 73rd overall. India scored 373 runs thanks to his knock, which earned him the Player of the Match award. The Men in Blue went on to win easily by 67 runs.
