HIGHLIGHTS

  • Virat Kohli is going through a rough patch in his career
  • Kohli scored 16 runs in the Lord’s ODI against England
  • Kohli won’t be travelling to the West Indies for the ODI and T20I series

Former Pakistan leg-spinner Mushtaq Ahmed reckoned that Virat Kohli needs a break of three to four months from all forms of cricket. The veteran was of the opinion that the 33-year-old Kohli needs to make a fresh start amidst his poor run of form in international cricket.

On Thursday, July 14, Kohli scored 16 runs off 25 balls against England in India’s second ODI at the iconic Lord’s Cricket Ground in London. The right-hander got out to fast bowler David Willey while trying to play outside the off-stump.

Mushtaq said that sitting on the sidelines charges one up mentally and motivates one to make a stronger comeback.

“In such a situation, Virat Kohli will have to skip a big series. He has to take a 3-4 month break from cricket. When I used to be dropped, or even rested and watched my teammates on television, it affected my mindset positively. You become more intense in your training,” Mushtaq was quoted as saying in Cricket Pakistan.

“If Virat returns after three months, he would forget that he has scored 27 centuries in Tests or 40+ centuries in ODIs. Then, he would make a fresh start and the concentration levels will go high. When someone is hungry, they would relish the food even more. It’s the same with cricket. When you come back after 3-4 months, your energy level and mindset would be completely changed,” he added.

After playing in the ODI series against the Three Lions, Kohli won’t be traveling to the West Indies for the ODI and T20I series. He hasn’t scored a century for India since the Day-Night Test against Bangladesh at Eden Gardens in November 2019.
