Big IPL season for Kohli
The last IPL was terrible for Kohli. He scored 341 runs in 16 games at an average of 22.73 and with a strike rate of just over 115. This included only 2 fifties. Almost all his innings were scratchy as he looked far from the best. Later in 200, Kohli revealed that he was going through a tough period where his mental health was also down and he did not feel like picking up a bat after the Test match and ODI series vs England in June and July.
When he returned after a month-long break, Kohli was a different animal altogether as he smashed his first T20I hundred in Asia Cup before finishing as the leading run-scorer in ICC Men's T20 World Cup 2023. The 34-year-old cricketers will be hoping to be at his best in IPL 2023.
