When India faces Pakistan to open their Asia Cup campaign on August 28, all eyes will be on Virat Kohli. The former India skipper has again failed to match the consistency he previously exuded in recent years. While Kohli hasn’t scored a hundred since November 2019, his recent performance has been far from stellar. On the Tour of England, he came up short in all three formats. He took a break for the Tour of the West Indies and Zimbabwe and will return in the Asia Cup.
Kohli discussed his difficulties before the continental competition. “I am aware of the state of my game, and you cannot progress this far in your international career without the capacity to adapt to changing circumstances and types of bowling. Therefore, this period is easier for me to process, but I don’t want to leave it behind “Kohli stated.
“I want to learn from it and I want to understand what are the core values that I have, as a sportsperson and as a human being. As long as I’m ticking those boxes, I know there are ups and downs, and when I come out of this phase, I know how consistent I can be. My experiences are sacred to me. Whatever I have experienced in this phase or in the past, as well one thing that I can vouch for, is that I have never valued myself more as a person.” The Asia Cup starts on August 27 in the UAE while the final will be played September 11.
