Virat Kohli returns to practice after a five-month break

Indian captain Virat Kohli has been out of action for five long months due to Corona. Kohli returns to practice after an unexpected five-month break. He has returned to practice not ahead of any international series, but ahead of the 13th edition of the IPL. At the end of the first net session, Kohli said, “I was scared at the beginning but I am much better than expected.”

Due to Corona, the IPL has been shifted from Indian soil to UAE soil. That is why Kohli got a chance to return to practice. Otherwise, Kohli may have to wait longer to return to practice. The 13th edition of the IPL is going to be held in the United Arab Emirates from September 19 this year. The final will be held on November 10.

The teams have already reached the UAE ahead of the IPL. The teams have started returning to practice at the end of the mandatory quarantine. Kohli’s Royal Challengers Bangalore is no exception. Bangalore practiced for the first time on Saturday (August 29th) at the ICC Academy in Dubai ahead of the 13th edition of the IPL. Kohli spoke on the Bangalore website after the practice.

In a video message on the official Twitter account of Royal Challengers Bangalore, Kohli said, “Honestly, I am much better than expected. I was very scared The bat has not been picked in the last five months But yes, I did it better than I expected During the lockdown, I took some training So I’m feeling pretty fit Which is helping me. ‘

He added, ‘Because if the body is fresh you can react well on the field. I think I have more time to watch the ball now. This is a big advantage. Otherwise, if you go to start the season with excess weight, you will not be able to move properly. It also affects the mind. But yes, as I said, it’s much better than I expected. ‘
