Former England skipper Michael Vaughan has advised Virat Kohli to take a three-month break from cricket and spend a certain time with loved ones.
Kohli has not scored a century since November 2019 and looked underwhelming in the Test against England at Edgbaston.
In the rescheduled 5th Test at Edgbaston, England beat India, as Virat Kohli continued to struggle to reach his first international century since November 2019. Even Michael Vaughan, a former England skipper, has advised Kohli to take a sabbatical from the game after noticing that he is struggling to score runs the way he used to.
It was not just a few days ago when Virat Kohli started having trouble with the bat. The 33-year-old appeared to be a shell of himself even during the Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) team’s Indian Premier League (IPL) season. Then, he was urged by former India head coach Ravi Shastri to take a short vacation from the game to rejuvenate himself.

“I pay close attention to Virat. I knew he was taking a break at the end of the IPL. But he appears to need a vacation. He appears to require three months off from cricket. “
“Go sit on a beach and do what you can with your family because a 20-year career, which he is likely to get because he is such a good player. Is a three-month break going to have an impact on him? No. Will it be beneficial to him? “Yes,” Michael Vaughan said in a Cricbuzz chat.
On Thursday, July 7, India and England will play the first of three Twenty20 International (T20I) matches at Southampton’s Rose Bowl Cricket Ground.
