In the last two years alone, Koli has played 25 Tests, 42 ODIs and 27 T20Is, in addition to representing the Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Now in a recent interview, Kohli spoke of the challenges that he is currently facing owing to the heavy schedule of Indian cricketers.
“Physically, I had a few niggles, I am just getting over those. The workload has started to disagree (taking a toll) with me a little bit. I have to be very careful about how I go forward with my body, my mind, my cricket,” Kohli said.
“Times like these are important going ahead. I am enjoying it. I do not think I am missing out on anything, because my body really needed this. I have started to listen to my body. And when I am done with this period, obviously in the IPL I will be coming out fresh,” Kohli observed.
”When he plays, it’s so beautiful. He has a family now, priorities set, he takes time out of the game without worrying about opinions and criticism of people and then he comes in and wins Grand Slams.
