The importance of rest

Virat Kohli scores his very first T20I century in his 104th match:

[,,,] when I came back I was not desperate. Six weeks off I was refreshed. I realised how tired I was. Competitiveness doesn't allow it, but this break allowed me enjoy the game again.

Playing at the elite level away from family and friends for long periods of time in foreign lands with different time zones with the expectations of over a billion people must be mentally and physically devastating. It would have been shocking if he wasn't tired.

Glad to see the run machine is back.
