It Should Have Been My Last Month of Playing International Cricket: Big Revelation by Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli recently dropped a 'bombshell' during an interview with Jio Cinema. The former Indian cricketer stated that he considered retiring from international cricket after the Asia Cup 2022.
Virat Kohli took a break from the game after the England series last year. The former number one batter had a poor outing in England and took a month long break before being included in the squad for the Asia Cup in UAE.
In a recent interview for Jio Cinema alongside Robin Uthappa, Kohli spoke in length about his feelings once he made his comeback at the international stage.
Here's what Kohli said:
"Most important factor in this whole transitional period before the Asia Cup last year was that I was willing to let go off everything. I was willing to accept that when I go back and play, it might be the last month of me playing competitive cricket, and I was absolutely okay with it."
Ever-since his comeback at the Asia Cup, Kohli hasn't looked back and has been a revelation for the Indian side. He was the leading run-scorer in the T20 World Cup 2022 and has already slammed three fifties in four innings of the ongoing IPL 2023.
