The first match of the 2-Test series between India and New Zealand will be played in Wellington on 21 February
Dainik BhaskarFeb 19, 2020, 11:57 AM IST Sports Desk. Indian captain Virat Kohli said that he will play in all three formats of cricket (ODI, Test and T20) for more than three years. For this, they have prepared themselves. They can then consider dropping the workload after assessing the workload. Kohli said this on Wednesday before the two-Test series against New Zealand. The first Test between India and New Zealand will be played in Wellington on 21 February.
Kohli said that he is looking forward to Indian cricket. There will be 2 T20 and one ODI World Cup in the next three years. Regarding the workload, Kohli said, "This is not a conversation you can hide in any way. It has been almost 8 years since I played cricket. I am playing 300 days a year. It also includes travel and practice sessions. The workload is the same all the time. "
Players take more brakes due to workload
He said, "There is a time in life when your body cannot accept anything. This can also happen at the age of 34 or 35. However, I do not need to think about this for the next 2 or 3 years. Talking about taking breaks from cricket from time to time, Kohli said, "It is not that players are not thinking about it all the time. We personally choose to take a lot of break even if the schedule does not allow you to. They are especially fellow players who play all formats. "
Kohli said, "Being a captain, keeping pace in the practice session is not easy. It always weighs you down. However from time to time the break works very well for me. "
Hopefully Mayank-Prithvi will repeat the spectacular performance
Kohli said about the team, "Prithvi is a very talented player. He has his own style of play and we want him to play the way he plays. I think Mayank played well in Australia and hopefully Prithvi will be able to repeat the same in New Zealand. Mayank will also be able to repeat his performance. "
