Shane Watson

Shane Watson feels that leaving India captaincy has had a dismal effect on Virat Kohli.

“I felt his battery was just a tiny bit off. In the end, he is human, even though everything he has done is just about he’s superhuman and with the intensity he has been able to take to every single game but at some stage and it wouldn’t surprise me if was…you know around the Indian stuff or him stepping down as captain and that’s gonna suck a lot of energy out of him because I know how much it meant to him,” he said.

“Whatever went on there would have been a big call for him to step down as captain for India. So at some stage it is going to take a toll in a little way. If he gets into a battle on the field, he’ll find that energy it straight away because that’s the type of batsman he is and type of person he is. He’s always up for a battle,” Watson added.

Ravi Shastri

Former India head coach under Virat Kohli’s regime has advised the ex-RCB captain to take a six months break and come fresh.

“Virat Kohli needs a break. He is cooked. He has been playing continuously and the bubble life takes a toll on everyone. Around the World Cup, he will not be the first person to take a break,” Ravi Shastri told host broadcaster Star Sports.

Kevin Pietersen

Kevin Pietersen feels Virat Kohli is dealing with a mental block as he looked short of confidence at times.

“He is the biggest star in the world. Virat needs to switch off for six months – completely from social media and cricket. He has had a lot to deal with. He had a wedding, had a baby, media pressure, a lot. Once he come back refreshed, he will be a difficult batsman to handle,” Pietersen told Star Sports.

Daniel Vettori

Ex-RCB captain Daniel Vettori has also broken his silence over Virat Kohli’s lean patch. He feels that Virat should be trusted to come good as the tournament progresses.

“It will be up to the individual. It will be up to Kohli and his experience and his understanding of himself; how he will manage his way out of it. If you try to help, you just get in the way and you’ll probably say the wrong thing and alienate him. It’s easier just to say, ’Virat, we trust you completely, and we’ll see you at the backend of the tournament, winning games for us’,” Vettori told ESPNCricinfo.

Sanjay Bangar

RCB head coach has defended Virat Kohli’s form. He said that the players go through these rough patches.

“He (Kohli) is somebody who has consistently performed for RCB. Players go through these kinds of rough patches. He started the season really well, nearly hit the winning runs in Pune but then you have an odd run-out or the first edge that finds his bat lands in the fielder’s hands,” said Sanjay Bangar in a press conference.

“He is certainly doing everything that is in his control. He is doing his fitness and skills and taking good breaks and not letting the pressure get to him. He has been taking breaks at regular intervals and will continue to do so going forward,” he added.
