I came to realisation that I was trying to fake my intensity a bit recently, like I can do it and you are competitive. I was convincing myself that no, you had the intensity. But your body was telling you to stop. The mind was telling me to take a break and step back.”

    It’s not so difficult to comprehend, Kohli is going through one of the most difficult stages of his career. Even the experts who offered him praise during his highs lashed out at him. Some even asked him if he would take a break, as he was able to use the West Indies and Zimbabwe series to get him back in shape.

    “I’m not shy to admit that I was feeling mentally down. This is a very normal thing to feel, but we don’t speak because we are hesitant. We don’t want to be looked at as mentally weak. Trust me, faking to be strong is far worse than admitting to being weak,” said the former captain.
