IPL 2022 | Virat Kohli’s energy was a little off, says Shane Watson

The news surrounding Virat Kohli’s form just doesn’t seem to die down and the former RCB captain has been having a torrid time with the bat for far too long which is making things harder for him. Former RCB player Shane Watson had his say on the hitter and felt Kohli’s energy was missing in the game against DC.

Virat KohliThe shape of is something everyone talks about in the cricketing world. The right-handed hitter hasn’t been able to score runs like he used to and his poor form in IPL 2022 has made him the center of attention. The former RCB hitter often finds himself edging balls he used to smash the coverage area for fun. Kohli himself has started to look downcast every time he goes out and seems to know nothing about what’s going on with him.

Former RCB player and Delhi Capitals coach Shane Watson is of the opinion that the resignation of Virat Kohli as captain of the Indian team has drained his energy. He also feels that the energy that Kohli usually has was not there when he took the field against the Delhi Capitals. β€œIn the last game, when the Delhi Capitals played against them, there was something slightly different with Virat. Because I’ve seen him before, I played against him and with him for a few seasons at RCB. And it seemed like his energy was a little different, a little off. The thing with Virat is that he always gets so excited every time he comes out at bat or is on the pitch. He’s superhuman what he’s been able to do so far and sustained for such a long period of time, it’s a scary nature with the intensities he’s able to continue to maintain his game,” said Watson in a chat with The Grade Cricketer.

“And the other night, it was just the other night that I felt his battery was just a little bit drained. Ultimately, he’s human, even though everything he’s done is pretty much superhuman and with the intensity he was able to take every game but at some point and it wouldn’t surprise me if it was…you know around the Indian stuff or his resignation as captain and it’s going to suck a lot of energy out of him because I know what that meant to him.”

Shane Watson has also spoken about what happened after Kohli left the captaincy and believes it all had an impact on the Indian batter as well.

“Whatever happened there, it would have been a big call for him to step down as captain for India. So at some point it’s going to take a bit of a toll. If he gets into a battle on the pitch, he’ll find that energy right away because that’s the type of drummer he is and the type of person he is. He’s always up for a battle. He’ll find it , you won’t take him long with the bat,” added Watson.
