Despite being in good form in international cricket for so long, Virat Kohli has lost his form after playing in the Indian Premier League (IPL). His 46-run innings is the highest ever in the current edition. Ravi Shastri could not accept the condition of a one-time disciple. A few days ago, he mentioned that Kohli needs rest. This time, the former India coach says that Kohli should leave the IPL earlier to prolong his international career.

Kohli, the former captain of Royal Challengers Bangalore, is not able to enjoy this year’s event. He has scored only 126 runs in 9 matches so far this year. Despite the success of the team, he is in a run drought. Shastri stood by Kohli in such a difficult time. Not only Kohli, but anyone who wants to prolong his international career should not play in the IPL full time, he said.

Shastri said, “If you want to prolong your international cricket career, play for another 7-8 years, then remove yourself from the IPL. That is what should be done. Then you can play for 14-15 years. Not only Virat, I will say the same to other Indian cricketers.

“If you want to play well for India, rest is important,” he said. And IPL is the only time when India does not play any cricket. Sometimes you have to tell the franchisee, you play half the time, let me be paid until then. ‘

The last time Kohli scored a century was in November 2019. That century came with Kohli’s bat in the Test match against Bangladesh at home.
