Yuvraj Singh’s Advice To Off-Colour Virat Kohli: “If He Can Change And Be Like…”
In the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2022, Virat Kohli is having a difficult time. The former Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) skipper has yet to make a half-century in his previous five innings, with scores of 9, 0, 0, and 1.
His bad performances alarm not only RCB, but also the Indian cricket team, which will compete in the 2022 T20 World Cup in Australia in six months. Kohli is also at the end of his international career. Yuvraj Singh, the 2011 World Cup winner, has some advise for Kohli.
Kohli’s Test career has come to an end after four years of dominance from 2016 to 2019. He finished the calendar years with averages of 75.93, 75.64, 55.08, and 68.00, respectively. Kohli averaged 19.33 and 28.21 in three and 11 Tests in 2020 and 2021, respectively. Kohli has averaged 37.80 in three Tests so far in 2022.
Kohli hit 17 hundreds across all forms from August 2017 to January 2019. He has had zero tons since December 2019.
“I believe he needs to reflect on how he was as a person when he was younger. He was a free-spirited, laid-back individual. He needs to reminisce about those times. Obviously, he isn’t satisfied, and neither are the rest of us, because we’ve seen him set higher goals, scoring hundreds after hundreds of points.
This, however, occurs to the best players “Yuvraj stated in the first of a two-part interview series on Sports18’s newest product, ‘Home of Heroes.’
“Virat needs to re-establish himself as a free-spirited individual. If he can transform himself and return to his previous form, it will show in his game. He has also shown to be the greatest of his generation and believes in a strong work ethic, which has allowed him to achieve his full potential throughout the years.”
