Virat Kohli, the captain of the Indian team likes to lead from the front. The world cricket fraternity recognizes the fact that the game has not seen a player as incredible as Virat. The captain has set new standards for the game and the team is following the suite as well. Virat, The run-machine that he is, has redefined hard-work and fitness. He has been playing non-stop cricket in all the three formats performing amazingly well.
But recently, Virat Kohli has conceded that heavy workload of playing cricket across three formats, is taking a toll on his body. "Times like these are important going ahead. I am enjoying it. I do not think I am missing out on anything because my body really needed this" - Kohli said.
One can not agree more with him when Virat says that his body is taking a toll for he has been working freaking hard. Virat has been the backbone of the Indian batting line-up for some time now. He has played 25 Tests, 42 ODIs and 27 T20Is alongside representing Royal Challengers Bangalore in a couple of IPLs since the start of 2016.
Keeping this in view, the selection panel has decided to rest Virat Kohli. "Physically, I had a few niggles, I am just getting over those. The workload has started to disagree (taking a toll) with me a little bit. I have to be very careful about how I go forward with my body, my mind, my cricket," Kohli said at a promotional event.
Virat Kohli said timely breaks are essential for one's fitness and natural game. "Times like these are important going ahead. I am enjoying it. I do not think I am missing out on anything because my body really needed this. I have started to listen to my body. And when I am done with this period, obviously in the IPL I will be coming out fresh," Kohli observed.
