  • Virat Kohli hasn’t been at his best in IPL 2022 for Royal Challengers Bangalore.
  • Kohli was advised to take a break from the game by Ravi Shastri and a few others.
  • The RCB striker said he will discuss it with Rahul Dravid and the Indian team management.
A ‘workload management’ advocate himself, Virat Kohli has struggled on the 22-yard field for some time now. Although he looked in better form against Gujarat Titans in the Indian Premier League (IPL) on Thursday, there are still those who think he could benefit from a break in the game.
Among those who suggested a break, the name of former India head coach Ravi Shastri topped the list. Talk to Featured Sports On Shastri’s suggestion, the Royal Challengers Bangalore stalwart admitted that a break could be beneficial but he needs to discuss it with head coach Rahul Dravid and team management first.

“There is one specific person who mentioned it, it’s Ravi bhai and it’s because he has seen up close over the last six or seven years the reality of the situation I found myself in. The amount of cricket I’ve played and the ups and downs and the price it costs you to play three game formats plus the IPL for 10-11 years without a break with the seven years as captain in between” , he told Star Sports in an interview.

“So taking a break and when to take a break is obviously something I have to take a call on, but it’s just a healthy decision for anyone to take some time off and recharge mentally and physically.

The Indian cricket team is set to host South Africa in a bilateral limited series from June 09. The Men in Blue will then travel to Ireland before taking on England in an all-format series.

In all likelihood, Kohli could be rested from the South Africa and Ireland series. But, a discussion with Dravid and the team management must first take place.

“It’s only a matter of creating a balance and finding that balance that works for you as an individual moving forward and I will definitely be discussing this with everyone involved – Rahul bhai, the management of the Indian team – everyone to plot what is best for me and for the team definitely.

In 14 matches this season, Kohli has amassed just 309 carries at an average of 23.77. He only has two fifty under his belt while those runs were also recorded at a slow 117.93 strike rate. If RCB qualifies for the playoffs, Kohli will definitely have to change some gears.
