IPL 2022: Kohli must forget what he has done and just have some fun- Michael Vaughan

Virat Kohli has managed just 216 runs in 12 matches in this season so far.

Former England captain and commentator Michael Vaughan has a crucial suggestion for Virat Kohli, who has been struggling for runs in IPL 2022 . While others are suggesting Kohli take a break from the game to rejuvenate him, Vaughan has asked the dashing cricketer to revisit the past and have some fun with the bat.

He feels the right-hander must go back 10 years and figure out the joy with which he started playing the game in order to get out of the horror patch he has been going through in the ongoing IPL 2022.

Michael Vaughan told Cricbuzz: “I hope Faf du Plessis has spoken to him and told him - ‘Go back 10 years when you didn’t have this profile. You’re not married and don’t have a kid. You’re going out there to whack the ball and have some fun. Forget your age, forget what you have done.”

He said that Kohli needs to go past 30-35 to rediscover his vintage self. He also reckoned that Kohli can be dangerous if he manages to get off to a good start in the remainder of the ongoing IPL 2022.

Vaughan signed off by saying, “If he gets to 35, I reckon he can go big. It’s just those initial 0-10 that he’s been struggling with. If he can get away and show a little bit of that youthfulness, he’s going to be dangerous.”

Notably, RCB is in the 4th spot with 14 points from 12 IPL 15 matches and now the team needs to win their next two matches to have a chance of making the playoffs for the third successive season.
