Indian skipper Virat Kohli has finally got some break after playing continuous cricket for the last few months. With the bio-secure bubble coming into the picture, cricketer’s life has become even more challenging. Hence, workload management is being given greater emphasis. Owing to the same, Kohli, who stepped down as India’s T20I captain following the conclusion of the T20 World Cup 2021, has been rested for the T20I series against New Zealand.

Meanwhile, Kohli, on Wednesday (November 17), took to Twitter and shared a couple of his pictures from a flight. In the candid pictures, the 33-year-old can be seen enjoying the view outside the window. While Kohli has shared many such pictures in the past, the emoji made this post notable.

Here’s Virat Kohli’s post: 

Does Virat Kohli believe in evil eye? 

The talismanic cricketer shared an uncanny eye-shaped emoji, which was shown a symbol of ‘Nazar Amulet’ when googled. For the unversed, this amulet is believed to protect against the evil eye, especially in Turkish culture. People usually sport this amulet as a neck chain or a bracelet. As Kohli is known for his practical believes and ideas, his belief in the evil eye seems fiddly. However, the Google search indicates Kohli might believe in these kinds of stuff.

Interestingly, Kohli hasn’t been at his best with the bat lately. While many of his fans claimed evil eye has something to do with the batter’s form, it remains to be known whether Kohli also views things from that perspective. Meanwhile, India will take on New Zealand in the first T20I later in the day at the Sawai Mansingh Stadium in Jaipur.

As mentioned above, Kohli won’t lead the national team in the shortest international format. Hence, Rohit Sharma has taken over the baton and he’ll marshal the troop in the upcoming series. It has to be noted that Kohli has been rested for this particular series. However, he’ll continue to serve the T20I team as a batter. Rohit confirmed the same in a recent interaction.

“Virat Kohli’s role won’t change. He will keep on doing what he has been doing for the team for so many years. He is a very important player for the team. Whenever he plays, he creates an impact. He always leaves his mark on the match,” said India’s newly appointed T20I captain in a virtual press conference on the eve of the first T20I.
