New Delhi, Former Indian cricket coach Ravi Shastri has made a big statement about Virat Kohli. He said that if Virat Kohli wanted to play for the country for the next six-seven years, he should rest.
According to Shastri, Virat Kohli should take a break from cricket to relieve mental fatigue and then return to the field. Kohli has not played a big innings in any match in a long time. This has also affected India’s performance and after losing the 2021 T20 World Cup, Team India has also lost the ODI and T20 series against South Africa.
According to Shastri, Kohli is mentally exhausted, which is why he is not getting runs off his bat. In the current IPL season, Virat has managed to score more than 40 runs only twice in seven innings.
He has not scored a single century in the last 100 innings if all formats are taken together. In the meantime, he relinquished his captaincy of India’s T20 and Test teams, when he was removed from the ODI captaincy. He had earlier resigned as RCB captain.
In a conversation with Star Sports, Ravi Shastri said that players like Ravi Shastri need to be handled. In the bio-bubble, he is allowed to roam in a limited space and this has affected his game.
According to Shastri, it is two months, one month or 15 days. Before or after the England tour. He needs rest, because he has 6-7 years of cricket left and you don’t want him to lose it due to mental exhaustion.
