Former Indian captain Virat Kohli, who resigned as Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper after the 2021 Indian Premier League (IPL) season, said he accepted the call to give himself more space and manage his career. Kohli has announced his intention to leave the IPL leadership position after saying that the T20 World Cup will be his last match as an Indian hero in a short way.
He then resigned as ODI commander before leaving the leadership role in a five-day format. “I am not a person who takes things in stride. Even if I knew I could do so much more, that I would not enjoy the process, I would not, ”Kohli said on‘ The RCB Podcast ’about dropping the leader’s armor.
Former RCB and Indian musician says it is very difficult for a person to understand what a cricketer thinks while making such decisions. “Because it is very difficult for people to understand your decisions unless they are in your position. From the outside, people have their expectations’ Oh! How did that happen? We’re very surprised ‘, ”added Kohli, who is on the verge of taking his 100th Test.
“It simply came to our notice then. I explain to people, I want more space and I want to manage my work and the story ends there. ”

Right from the start of the IPL until last season, the RCB has never won a major tournament. Deleting all the conversations that people have about his decision, Kohli refrained from saying, “Nothing at all. I make my life very simple and basic, when I want to make a decision, I make a decision and I announce it. I do not want to think about it and think about it for another year. That would do nothing to me, nothing to the community of which I was a part. The quality of life is very important to me. And cricket quality is very important to me.
“Within a while, you want to do what you do every day and you want to do as much as you can, but at the end of the day, you have to know that quality. is more important than quantity, ”Kohli stressed.
The elegant top order batter also emphasizes that it has always been your own. “Understanding hard work but quality is killing. That is the key. If you go for quantity in execution, then it will burn. If I could not be myself in my daily life and I could not be myself on the field, I would change something. Because that is me. That is why I am where I am. And that is why people can connect with me at some level. My lovers, the people closest to me, my friends who connected with me for that reason, because I have always been myself, ”he wrote.
