Record holder Virat Kohli claimed 27 centuries in 102 Tests, but suddenly things have gone downhill for the 33-year-old in the last three years.
He made last century in 2019 during the Day-Night Test in Kolkata. Virat had a miserable IPL 2022 season for Royal Challengers Bangalore. Even in the fifth and last Test against England, he scored 11 and 20.
Former England captain Michael Vaughan believes this, “I look at Virat in particular. He took a short break after the IPL, but that was not enough. He needs a sabbatical from the game. He needs three months away from cricket. Go and sit on a beach,” Vaughan told Cricbuzz.
“Go and do what you can with your family. Take a three months break and see the positive impact,” he added.
Vaughan also spoke about India’s jam-packed schedule for the England series. ‘The schedule is ridiculous. The players cannot play all the formats. They need a breather.”
