Royal Challengers Bangalore skipper Virat Kohli gives his fans a deeper understanding of his cricketing mind. The 25-year-old believes in wasting no time when it comes to formulating plans and strategies for the game of cricket. Kohli revealed that he trains his mind even while he is travelling in a bus.

“Even when I am going to the ground in the bus, I keep thinking about the shots I am going to play and to which bowler. Once you train your brain what to do then obviously when you go out there, you find that perfect zone,” he said.

Kohli also imagines and contemplates on how to play certain bowlers. “I visualise a lot. I sit and think before a game. I visualise the bowlers whom I am going to face the next day or on the game day,” said Kohli, who is the fastest Indian batsman to score a century in ODI.

On being asked about his strength and aggression, he said: “My strength is a lot of intensity on the field. My strength is aggression, but controlled-aggression now. I try to channelise that as much as I can in the things I want to do on the field,”

Kohli also went on to say that he does not pay much attention to the criticism spilled on him.

“Every time I start scoring everyone says he is in the form of his life. So, I don’t pay attention to that. It is just that even if you are not doing well, just one or two good matches can change things around for you,” he said.

The right hand batsman is also someone who lives in the present.

“I don’t think about what I have done in the past. How well I have performed in the recent matches I played. For me it is always the next game and my focus is to do well,” he added.
