Ravi Shastri Advices Virat Kohli to Skip Remaining of IPL 2022

Former Indian cricket team head coach Ravi Shastri advised Virat Kohli to skip the remainder of the ongoing IPL season and give himself a much-needed break.

Virat Kohli is going through one of the leanest phases of his cricketing career, and his knock of 9 against the Rajasthan Royals (RR) on Tuesday was the latest in a series of low scores from the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) star batter after a couple of golden duck.

Kohli, who has not scored a century in competitive cricket for over two years now, was dismissed by a short delivery from Prasidh Krishna for 9 runs where RCB lost the match by 29 runs to Rajasthan Royals.

“I think a break is ideal for him because he has played non-stop cricket and he has captained the side across all formats. It will be wise of him to take a break. You know, sometimes you have to draw the balance.

This year he is already into the tournament (IPL 2022), tomorrow if push comes to shove and you want to prolong your international career and make a mark there for 6-7 years, pull out of the IPL, for all you care,” Shastri told Star Sports presenter Jatin Sapru in a chat on the latter’s YouTube channel.

“If that is the case, you have played for 14-15 years. Not only Virat, I’ll tell that to any other player.

If you want to play and do well for India, you have to draw the line where you want to take that break and the ideal break would be off-season where India is not playing and the only time India does not play is the IPL,” added Shastri, a former all-rounder who also captained Team India.

RCB will face Gujarat Titans to play their next league match of IPL 2022 on April 30, 2022 in Brabourne Stadium, Mumbai.
