“It’s repetitive, it’s not as tough when the group of guys is amazing, which we have. Everyone part of that bio-bubble is really nice and the vibe has been so good. That’s precisely why we’ve enjoyed playing together, just enjoyed our time in the bubble as well, but it does get difficult at times because it is repetitive,” Kohli said while speaking to RCB TV.

“These things will have to be considered. Like what length of the tournament or series one is going to play and what impact it will have on players mentally to stay in a similar environment for 80 days and not do anything different. Or have space to just go and see family or small things like that. These things have to be thought about seriously,” he added.
The Indian skipper further pointed out that it’s important how the players are feeling as they should be in the best state mentally.
“At the end of the day, you want the players to be in the best state mentally, based on how they’re feeling,” the Indian skipper said.
The Virat Kohli and Co. will fly to Australia after the completion of cash-rich IPL for three ODIs, three T20Is and four Test matches to be played in a bio-secure environment from November 27 to January 15 next year.
