Mumbai. Downplaying his current poor form, star batsman Virat Kohli said he is actually going through the ‘happiest phase of his life’ where he is not giving much importance to success or failure. Kohli has not scored a century for almost 3 years and the current season of IPL 2022 has been the worst for him so far. The team is going to face Gujarat Titans after some time in an important match (IPL 2022). It is necessary for RCB to win this match to stay in the race for the playoffs. The Gujarat team has already made it to the knockout rounds.
Virat Kohli told Star Sports, ‘I am actually going through the happiest phase of my life. I am not paying much attention to what I am doing on the field. I have passed this stage. This is a stage of development for me. Former India captain Kohli, who left the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) captaincy after last season, is going through his worst phase with the bat, leaving millions of his fans disappointed. The 15th season of IPL has been extremely disappointing for Virat Kohli with the bat, in which he has managed to score just one half-century in 13 matches for RCB.
will leave that day
Kohli has been out on the first ball 3 times in the current season. He has been able to score only 200 runs and his average and strike rate are not up to his potential. However, this 33-year-old player also said that his inspiration is not over. He said that it should not be said that my inspiration was not the same as before. My inspiration will never end. The day my hunger ends, I will not play this game.
I’m happy with what’s going on
Virat Kohli said that but it should be understood that some things are not in your control. The only things under your control are the things you can work on, which is to work hard on the field and have the same attitude in life. I feel that I am in the most balanced state in life and I am happy with who I am and the way my life is going.
no reason to be excited
For former Indian captain Virat Kohli, success and failure on the field are becoming increasingly irrelevant. He said that I can’t find any reason to be excited or disappointed in what is happening on the field. Kohli’s remarks, however, are not in line with what the cricket world, including his millions of fans, is feeling. His fans and experts are worried over the failure of modern-day legend Kohli to score runs. Former India head coach Ravi Shastri has advised him to take a break from cricket.
Kohli made his last international century in 2019. He has failed to motivate his team to win the title, after which he also left the captaincy of the T20 team, RCB and then the Test team.
