Virat Kohli needs no introduction, but the veteran cricketer is under the scanner for his poor returns with the bat. With no century almost in three years and continuous failures have diminished his threat to rival teams.
The BCCI gave him a month’s break after the England tour, and he missed the series against the West Indies and Zimbabwe. The 33-year-old has returned for the Asia Cup 2022 and will take on Pakistan at the Dubai International Stadium.
The August 28 match is crucial for his career, and the legendary player has spoken about his form and a need for a break after playing against England.
“I realized I was trying to fake my intensity recently. No, I can do it, and you’re competitive, and then you’re convincing yourself that I have the intensity, but your body is telling you to take a break and step back,” he said.
“For the first time in 10 years, I have not touched the bat for a month,” he added.
