“Virat for one will never feel alone when he’s around people who love and support him. That’s where he has got his mental strength from.

Earlier, Kohli in an interview with The Indian Express said,”I personally have experienced times when even in a room full of people who support and love me, I felt alone, and I am sure that this is a feeling that a lot of people can relate to. So, take out time for yourself and reconnect with your core self. If you lose that connection, it wouldn’t take very long for other things to crumble around you.”

“You need to learn how to compartmentalise your time so that there’s balance. It takes practice like anything else in life, but it’s something worth investing in, that’s the only way to feel a sense of sanity and enjoyment while doing your work,” he added.

The 35-year-old is all set to play in the upcoming 2022 Asia Cup, which gets underway in the UAE on August 27.
