Virat Kohli shed light on the reasons for his two-month break


Virat Kohli's impressive performance of 77 runs against Punjab Kings at the Chinnaswamy Stadium, Virat Kohli shared insights into his two-month break, during which his wife, Anushka Sharma, welcomed their second child. 

During India's home Test series against England, Virat Kohli was absent from the team as he and his family chose to spend some time outside the country.

"We were not in the country. We were at a place where people were not recognising us. Just time together as a family, just to feel normal for two months," Kohli said at the post-match presentation ceremony. "For me, for us as a family, it was a surreal experience.

"Of course, having two kids, things become totally different from a family perspective. So just the ability to be together, the connections that you make with your older child, it's amazing.

"I mean, I couldn't have been more grateful to God for the opportunity that I got to spend time with my family."

Kohli expressed his appreciation for the lack of celebrity treatment.

Kohli discussed the immense support he receives from passionate RCB fans, particularly in Bengaluru, where he has been a part of the franchise since the beginning of the IPL.

Kohli is well aware of the need to adapt his game to stay competitive in the constantly changing world of T20 cricket.

"So, I mean, you have to come up with a game plan here and there and try to keep improving your game," Kohli said, before issuing a friendly reminder.

"I know my name is nowadays quite attached to just promoting the game in many parts of the world when it comes to T20 cricket. But, I've still got it, I guess."
