Virat Kohli “Needs A Sabbatical” and “Go Sit On A Beach,” according to one ex-England captain.
Virat Kohli has recently struggled with his swing, and Michael Vaughan suggested that the 33-year-old batsman needs a vacation from the game to allow him to reinvent himself.
According to former England captain Michael Vaughan, out-of-sorts Indian batter Virat Kohli should take a “three-month break” from cricket to spend more time with his family. Kohli scored 11 and 20 in the just-concluded fifth Test against England at Edgbaston in Birmingham, nearly three years since his last century. Vaughan asserted that Kohli, a 33-year-old hitter, needs a sabbatical from the game in order to reinvent himself in light of his recent bat-related troubles.
“My attention is primarily on Virat. After the IPL, he took a temporary hiatus, which I was aware of. But he just seems like someone who needs a break to me. He seems to need a three-month break from cricket. If you like, sit on a beach. Since he is such a brilliant athlete, he probably will end up having a 20-year career. Go, take care of your family as much as you can. Will a break of three months hurt him in any way? No. He is it enabling? Yes, ” Vaughan stated in a conversation with Cricbuzz.
Vaughan has criticized the three-match T20I series between England and India, which got underway on Thursday, saying it is challenging for the players to play all three forms in a short amount of time.
Just two days after the Test match, a series that is viewed as a buildup to the T20 World Cup later this year, gets underway.
“I barely give the England and India schedule a cursory glance. It’s ridiculous. This will spread more widely during the coming few years. Simply said, all-format players will be unable to take part in all three formats.
