Team India skipper Virat Kohli is known for speaking openly about mental health. When Australian legend Glenn Maxwell took a break from cricket due to mental health, Virat openly supported him. Even before leaving for England, Virat Kohli described the players’ mental health as a big problem and said it should not be ignored during this difficult time.

Team India will have to play a five-match Test series against England from June 18 to the World Test Championship final against New Zealand and then England. Team India went on a tour of England late Wednesday. Before moving to England, Virat said it was not easy to induce players in the bio-bubble due to the Kovid-19 epidemic. He said life is the same between the grounds and the hotel rooms and it is very difficult to motivate players in such a situation.

Virat said, ‘Truth be told, what kind of environment we are playing in at the moment, it is very difficult to find the right amount of mental space to keep players motivated for a long time. It is very difficult to be limited to just one field and work all day. I think mental health is a big factor in cricket at this time, which should not be ignored because you don’t want players to be left out because of the hard work we put into this team, and they don’t have the ability or the space to express themselves.
