“I’m actually in the happiest phase of my life. I am not finding any self-worth or value in what I do on the field. I’m way past that phase. This is a phase of evolution for me. Not to say that I don’t have the same drive, my drive will never die down. The day my drive goes away, I’ll not be playing this game,” Virat Kohli said on Star Sports show ‘Inside RCB’.

While many former greats including Sunil Gavaskar and former India coach Ravi Shastri have asked him to take a break from cricket for six months, he remains focused on getting his form back.

“My experiences are sacred to me. Whatever I have experienced in this phase or in the past as well, one thing I can vouch for is that I have never valued myself more as a person. Because I’m experiencing now that there is a big sense of the identity that’s created by the world for you. So, what I’m experiencing now is that I am valuing myself and I care for my own well-being way more I would have in the past,” Virat Kohli said.

Focused on working harder – His form, as per him, is not something he can control. Rather he said, he is focused on working harder on the field. However, he is disappointed for not contributing as much to the team’s cause.

“This has not been about myself, this is about the fact that I have not contributed to my team’s cause as much as I would have wanted to or I pride myself to. That is something that always disappoints me, not what I do as an individual. It’s because I don’t want to let my team down,” he added.

Transition from captaincy: Many do feel that the transition from captaincy to a regular player hasn’t been easy on Kohli. But Kohli said his good relationship with Faf du Plessis made it easier.

“To be honest, it’s different. I won’t say it’s hard because it’s something that you’re involved in regularly. So, the good thing is that my relationship with Faf has always been good. We also have a leadership group in the team where we all share our inputs,” Virat Kohli said.

“It is just different at this moment and something that obviously came as second nature to me when I played under MS and honestly, I thoroughly enjoyed playing in that space as well where I was looked at as a responsible player in the team and I could contribute in many ways and obviously give my inputs to the captain as well. That really excited me whenever I stepped onto the field which is the case this time as well,” he pointed.

RCB square off with table-toppers Gujarat Titans in the IPL 2022 on Thursday for a spot in the playoffs.
