However, Parag has not been in this peach of a form and has struggled quite a lot in the past. The batter on Monday opened up on a chat he had with Kohli that helped him quite a lot during his lean period.

In my second year, I was having a bad phase in the IPL. I was discussing with him on how to get out of that phase and how he used to handle similar situations, so I can learn from his experience as well. He gave me a good 10-15 minutes of his time and shared a few things with me, I think that really helped me,” Parag told Jio Cinema.
