New Delhi: Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli has made an important confession about his “mental health”.
According to a foreign news agency, Virat Kohli has admitted that he suffered from depression due to his failure in the England series in 2014, during which time he considered himself the “loneliest person in the world”.
He admitted this while talking to former cricketer Mark Nichols on a podcast, Kohli said that when he woke up in the morning, he realized that he was not capable of scoring runs.
“I think every batsman on a particular occasion feels like he’s out of control,” said Kohli. “It was a time when I couldn’t do anything to change the situation, despite family support, I felt lonely.”
The highest-paid in the world of cricket, the Captain of the Indian cricket team said that he talked to former Indian captain Sachin Tendulkar to reduce depression. The legendary batsman advised me to let go of these feelings instead of fighting depression.
Now Virat Kohli says that if you start fighting these ideas, they get stronger. I followed Tendulkar’s advice, which helped me a lot in overcoming this disease.
It may be recalled that during the England series of 2014, Kohli had scored runs at an average of 13.50 in five Test matches. In this Test series, India had suffered a defeat against England.
