IND vs PAK: India will begin their Asia Cup campaign with a clash with arch-rivals Pakistan on August 28 and Virat Kohli will have the chance to regain his form and climb the international rankings during the competition.

Prior to his T20I match against Pakistan, Kohli has had time to consider his performance and improve his understanding of his game. His 100th T20I will be this one. All eyes will be on “King Kohli” to lead India to a record-tying ninth Asia Cup victory, with supporters all over the world hoping he can get back to his best.

Virat Kohli discussed his mental approach and his preparations for the 2022 Asia Cup.

“What happened in England was a pattern. So something that I could work on and something that I had to kind of overcome. Right now, as you rightly mentioned, there nothing that you can point out saying that the problem happening here. So, that for me, is an easier thing to process. Because I know that I’m batting well and at times, when I start feeling that rhythm back. Then I know that I’m batting well,” Virat said on Star Sports show ‘Game Plan.’

“So, that for me is not an issue, which wasn’t the case in England; I didn’t feel like I was batting well at all. So, I had to work hard on one thing that could be exposed again and again which I overcame; right now this is not the case,” he added.

Kohli continued by highlighting the significance of this recent period for his career. And the way it has changed the way he views both his game and his life.

“I know where my game stands and you cannot run this far in your international career without having the ability to counter situations and counter conditions and counter different kinds of bowling. So, this for me, is an easier phase to process, but I don’t want to put this phase behind me. I want to learn from it and I want to understand what are the core values. That I have, as a sportsperson and as a human being,” he said.

“As long as I’m ticking those boxes, I know there are ups and downs. And when I come out of this phase, I know how consistent I can be. My experiences are sacred to me. Whatever I have experienced in this phase or in the past. As well one thing that I can vouch for, is that I have never valued myself more as a person,” he added.

UAE will host the Asia Cup 2022 from August 27 to September 11.
