Virat Kohli, who is struggl ing, mutes TV to silence critics. Kohli has now gone more than 100 matches without scoring a century in all formats. This season, he has only 216 runs from 12 IPL games, scoring one half-century.

Out-of-form Virat Kohli claims to have a foolproof method of drowning out his growing chorus of critics. He simply turns off the television. The 33-year-old former India captain has been struggling with his batting for RCB in the Indian Premier League and was dismissed for his third golden duck of the season on Sunday. Commentators have said that the usually prolific batsman appears “overcooked” and needs a rest, but Kohli said in a mostly lighthearted video on Bangalore’s website that he has learned to drown out those who criticize him.

“They can’t be in my shoes, they can’t feel what I feel, they can’t live my life, they can’t live those moments,” Kohli said of critics.

Virat Kohli: “How do you silence the noise? You either Mutes the tv or don’t listen to or pay attention to what others are saying. Both of these things I do.”

Kohli walked off with a wry smile after his latest golden duck, when he flicked the opening delivery of the match to Sunrisers Hyderabad skipper Kane Williamson.

The video’s host joked that Kohli has two ducks, referring to the batsman being out twice in a row to first balls earlier this season.

“It hasn’t happened to me in my career, I believe. Everything is now visible to me. I’ve been playing this game for so long that I’ve seen everything “Kohli smiled as he spoke.

Kohli has now failed to score a century in over 100 games across all formats.

This season, he has only 216 runs from 12 IPL games, scoring one half-century.

Kohli spoke fondly of South African great and former IPL teammate AB de Villiers, who is still hoping to win his first IPL trophy with Bangalore, the team he captained between 2013 and 2021.

“I really miss him. I communicate with him on a regular basis “Kohli stated.

“He keeps messaging me… we keep in touch, he is obviously very interested in RCB and hopefully here next year in some capacity.”
