I feel somewhere the commercial aspect is taking over the real quality of cricket and that hurts me,” Kohli has told the Wisden Cricket Monthly.Also Read: Kohli Number 1: Not just in Tests and ODIs rankings, see where else Virat…While the England and Wales Cricket Board (ECB) is starting a new 100-ball format, which has drawn flak from all quarters, the Indian skipper announced that he won’t be a part of “one more format”. Obviously for the people involved (ECB) in the whole process and the set-up it will be really exciting but I cannot think of one more format, to be honest,” Kohli said.“Honestly, I don’t want to be a testing sort of a cricketer for any new format. I don’t want to be someone who’s going to be part of that World XI who comes and launches the 100-ball format.”Kohli also explained the difference between leagues like IPL or the Big Bash League from the proposed 100-ball format. “I love playing the IPL, I love watching the BBL, because you are working towards something, competing against high-quality sides and it gets your competitive juices flowing. That’s what you want as a cricketer. I am all for the leagues, but not to experiment.”Kohli, who missed out on his much-hyped county stint with Surrey due to an injury, however said that he would love to play first-class cricket in England.“County cricket always intrigued me. Unfortunately, it couldn’t happen this time but I would love to come again in future,” he said.Also Read: Social Media Value: Virat Kohli’s sponsored Instagram post valued at ₹ 82.5 lakh BCCI Apex Council Meet: BCCI to bid for 3 major global events in next tournament cycle starting from 2024; Check Share on Facebook Tweet on Twitter Tokyo Olympics: BCCI provides fuel in Indian Olympic flame, to contribute Rs 10 crore Cricket’s biggest brand Virat Kohli is not at all happy with 100-ball format of the sport.
