Ex-England Captain: Virat Kohli “Needs A Sabbatical”; “Go Sit On A Beach”
Michael Vaughan noted Virat Kohli’s recent struggles with the bat and suggested that the 33-year-old hitter needs a break from the game to enable him reinvent himself.
Virat Kohli, the out-of-sorts Indian batter, should take a “three-month hiatus” from cricket, according to former England captain Michael Vaughan, in order to spend more time with his family. In the just-finished fifth Test against England at Edgbaston in Birmingham, Kohli, who hasn’t made a century in almost three years, achieved scores of 11 and 20. In light of Kohli’s recent struggles with the bat, Vaughan claimed that the 33-year-old hitter needed a break from the game in order to reinvent himself.
“I focus especially on Virat. I was aware that he took a brief break after the IPL. But he simply strikes me as someone who needs a break. He appears to require a break from cricket for three months. Sit on a beach if you like. Go and take care of your family as much as you can since he likely will wind up having a 20-year career because he is such a talented player. Will a three-month sabbatical damage him in any way? No. Does it enable him? Yes, “During a conversation with Cricbuzz, Vaughan said.
The three-match T20I series between England and India, which began on Thursday, has drawn criticism from Vaughan, who claims it is difficult for the players to play all three forms in a short period of time.
The series, which is seen as a lead-up to the T20 World Cup later this year, begins just two days after the Test match.
“I only glance at the England and India schedule. It is absurd. Over the ensuing few years, this will become more and more prevalent. All-format players just won’t be able to participate in all three forms.
