In games against the Lucknow Super Giants and SunRisers Hyderabad, the batsman was knocked for a golden duck, even though he could only manage a mark of 9 against the Rajasthan Royals.

Ravi Shastri, the former head coach of Team India, has underlined that Kohli deserves a break to rejuvenate his brain.

“You’ve been playing for fourteen to fifteen years. I’ll tell that to any player, not only Virat. If you want to play for India and do well, you must draw a line when you want to take that break, and the best break would be during the off-season when India is not playing, which is only during the IPL.”
