This is for the first time in many years that Virat Kohli isn’t leading the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League. And since he is no longer the captain of the team, the fans didn’t get to see him talk in the ongoing 2022 edition of the Indian Premier League.
Virat Kohli, who was going through a dark phase in his career, continued with his inconsistent form in the ongoing season of the IPL. In fact, IPL 2022 has been a forgettable season so far for Virat Kohli.
He is struggling to score runs this year. In 12 innings for the franchise so far, Kohli has only scored 216 runs for RCB, and barring a fifty against Gujarat Titans, Virat hasn’t really set the stage on fire. However, what is more, disappointing is the fact that Virat has been dismissed for three first-ball ducks this IPL season.
The same has rung alarm bells, with several critics pointing fingers at Virat Kohli’s place in the playing XI. However, Virat surely knows how to silence the ‘outside noise’.
From commentators and pundits to fans, literally, everyone in the Indian cricket fraternity has questioned its poor run of Kohli in the ongoing season. There are many, including former head coach Ravi Shastri, who feels that Virat should take a break. Virat has finally responded to all the critics by saying that they can’t feel what he is feeling right now.
Well, in a video shared by RCB’s official Twitter handle, Virat Kohli gave a fitting reply to his critics by saying: “They can’t be in my shoes. They can’t feel what I feel. They can’t live my life. They can’t live those moments. So you say how do you cut out the noise? You either mute the TV or don’t play attention to what people are saying. I do both of these things”
