Kohli says playing in bio-bubble tough

Pune: After winning a closely-contested series against England, India skipper Virat Kohli questioned the scheduling of the matches and hoped that the authorities will look into it.

“Scheduling needs to be looked at in the future, [especially] in these times. Because playing in bio-bubbles will be difficult, and everyone can’t have the same mental capacity all the time. I am sure things will be discussed in the future,” said the India skipper after he led his team to a 2-1 win in the ODI series on Sunday, which capped off a gruelling international calendar for his boys.

Immediately after the Indian Premier League T20 tournament that ended in November last year in UAE, India have been busy in full series with top international sides — Australia (away) and England (at home).

They have played eight Test matches, six ODIs and six T20 Internationals.

This year, Test matches and T20 Internationals needed to be given significance since there is the World Test Championship final which India will play in June as well as the T20 World Cup here in India in October-November.

The ODI matches are turning out to be unnecessary disturbance.

The 32-year-old said that he was impressed by the depth of India’s batting.
