Virat Kohli Says Cricket Workload Taking A Toll On His Body

India cricket team captain Virat Kohli, who was rested from the ongoing Nidahas Trophy in Sri Lanka, has said that during his break, he is completely opposite to his on-field demeanour and prefers being lazy.

“I can sit and not move from one place for hours and that’s how lazy I can be. When I get free time at home, I can be a total vegetable and be very annoying compared to the energy I show on field,” Kohli said on the sidelines of a promotional event yesterday.

Virat Kohli, who got married to actor Anushka Sharma in December last year, added: “Physically, I had a few niggles and I am just getting over them. The workload has started to disagree with me so I have to be careful about how I go forward with my body, mind and cricket. Times like these [rest period] are really important. I really needed this break. And when I am done with this period, obviously in the IPL I will be coming out fresh. I will be mentally in a better place on the field.”
