“I would suggest that Kohli take a four to six weeks break”, Wasim Jaffer Advices Virat

Former India opener Wasim Jaffer becomes the latest person to throw lights on Virat Kohli‘s lean patch. Former Indian captain Virat Kohli who is undergoing a lean patch with the bat has scored just 216 runs from 12 matches in the ongoing IPL 2022 season.

Earlier, former India coach Ravi Shastri had suggested Kohli to take a break and his thoughts were backed by former England cricketer Kevin Pietersen.

“The way he has got out in the last couple of matches, it seems he is overcooked by playing too much cricket. The last six months have been very intense for him as he resigned from the Test and T20 captaincy and was asked to leave ODI captaincy.

After going through all these things, he is playing in IPL and hasn’t been able to score much for RCB, which certainly affects one’s mindset. So, I would suggest that Kohli take a four to six weeks break after the conclusion of IPL 2022 and come back as a mentally fresh player,” Jaffer told News24.

“He doesn’t have the captaincy burden so I feel whenever he will come after the break, I will be in a better mental state as he will now focus on his own performances rather than thinking about selection issues.

I definitely feel he should take a break in the South Africa and England series and he may come to play in the Asia Cup, whenever it takes place. The break will be handy for Kohli and will help in coming with a fresh perspective. If we can get the old Virat Kohli, it will be great for India,” he added.

After the IPL, India have a packed calendar in build-up to the T20 World Cup and the Men in Blue would want Kohli to hit the right notes before the event gets underway in Australia later this year.
