At the currently-running Asia Cup 2022 in the UAE, Virat Kohli is gradually regaining his rhythm. He contributed significantly to a frantic chase against Pakistan in India’s tournament opener, and then he hit his first fifty since February of this year to build the groundwork for what ultimately proved to be a match-winning total against Hong Kong.
After the England tour, Kohli took a sabbatical from cricket, and he subsequently admitted that he didn’t pick up a bat during that period. He claimed to be back and to be mentally sharp right now.
Virat Earlier spoke how he was feeling
For the first time in ten years, I went a month without using my bat. Recently, I realised that I had been trying to fake my intensity a little bit. I kept telling myself that you had the intensity, not me. Your body, though, was urging you to stop. The mind was urging me to stop and back up “In a Star Sports video, Kohli made a statement.
“Everyone thinks of me as a guy who has a strong mind, and I do, but everyone has a limit, and you need to know that limit, or else things get unhealthy for you. This period taught me a lot of things that I wasn’t allowing to come to the surface. When they finally came up, I embraced it, and it helped me”, he added

Kohli’s unwavering dedication to upholding the highest standards of his fitness level is demonstrated by a video of him running while donning a special “altitude mask” that has been shared on YouTube. The 33-year-old was spotted running in Dubai’s oppressive temperature while wearing the mask, which is intended to slow down breathing to a level similar to what is experienced at higher elevations (mountains etc).
Following Kohli’s completion of his batting practise in the nets, this was seen runing in wearing the mask. During the workout, Kohli tested his endurance while timing himself and being assisted by a member of the Indian team support staff.
