Virat Kohli, who is currently taking a break from cricket, was recently spotted in a hotel in Doha, Qatar. Kohli will be back in action in the 2022 Asia Cup, which gets underway on August 27 in the United Arab Emirates.

Kohli enjoyed a good holiday with his family in the United Kingdom after not featuring in the previous two series against the West Indies and Zimbabwe. He came back to Mumbai a few days back and had started training to get back to match fitness before the start of the Multilateral tournament.

Now, just a couple of days before joining the Indian team in the UAE, Kohli was seen in Doha. However, the reason for his travel is not revealed. Mondrian Doha, a hotel, shared a short clip on its official Instagram handle where Kohli was seen interacting with the hotel staff.

Here is the Video-

The hotel captioned the video, “Welcome to the wonderland,” they captioned the video. Kohli, who has had a poor run of form with the bat, will look to get back in full flow in the upcoming Asia Cup. He scored his last international ton in the 2019 pink-ball-Test against Bangladesh at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata which was a day-night affair.

The Men in Blue will start their Asia Cup campaign against arch-rivals Pakistan at the Dubai International Cricket Stadium on August 28.

Virat remains world-class – AB De Villers on Virat Kohli

The South African veteran AB de Villiers, who is a close friend of the former Indian Skipper, has put aside any concerns of Virat’s form. He stated that Virat Kohli will be amongst the runs in the Asia Cup 2022.

Labelling him as one of the greatest cricketers during an interaction with NDTV, De Villiers said:

“Virat [Kohli] is one of the greatest cricketers ever to play the game. Form is temporary, class is permanent. Virat remains world-class. Virat and I remain in regular contact. We are friends, and he certainly does not need me to tell him the importance of working hard during a bad patch.”
