Former Indian skipper Virat Kohli, who has not scored a century since November 2019, has now opened up about his poor form in the ongoing season of the Indian Premier League and said he is actually going through the happiest phase of his life

Calling it evolution phase of his life, he told the Star Sports that he is not finding any self-worth or value in what he do on the field. This is a phase of evolution where he is not receptive to either success or failure, he said.

Not to say that he don’t have the same drive, his drive will never die down. The day his drive goes away, he will not be playing this game, Kohli also said.

Kohli also admitted that he is not contributing to his team cause disappoints him as he doesn’t want to let his side down.

Kohli has resigned from team India and as well as from RCB captaincy to fucus on his game but it didn’t help him to get back to the run-machine avatar and the current season of IPL happens to be his worst.

In 13 matches, the former RCB skipper has scored 236 runs at an average of 19.67, the lowest of his all season since 2009. In the inaugural 2008 IPL, he had averaged 15. These stats are the proof that one of the prolific Indian batters is struggling to score runs.

In this season of IPL, Virat Kohli has scored only one half-century and his strike-rate is 113.46 with three golden ducks.
