Virat Kohli Likely To Be Rested For The South Africa T20s - Reports

Virat Kohli has not been in great touch in IPL 2022 as he has scored just around 200 runs at only around 19 runs per match.

This IPL edition is longer than usual as there are two new teams. This means that with Covid around, players have to spend more time in the bubble.

As per reports earlier, the BCCI was considering doing away with the bubbles. But in any case, as per the latest reports, the BCCI is considering resting a jaded Virat Kohli for the 5 match T20 series against South Africa. This is to ensure that he is fresh for the England Tour later this year.

Virat Kohli in all probability will be rested for the South Africa series. He has been playing a lot of cricket and has been in the bubble for a long time,” the senior BCCI official further told PTI on conditions of anonymity.
