Vaughan feels giving Kohli some time off before the big event will be a good decision.
"If India are smart they rest @imVkohli now for the World Cup … Give him some time off before the big event … #IPL2019," Vaughan wrote on his twitter handle.
RCB needs to win all their remaining eight matches to salvage any hope of making it to the Play-offs. The Kohli led RCB franchise haven't stood out this season so far, with the skipper leading as their top scorer so far, while other than ABD, no other RCB player has been able to contribute so far, leaving the Bangalore side reeling.
Helplessness was palpable when Virat Kohli spoke after his side's sixth straight defeat this IPL season as he defended his atypical slow knock against Delhi Capitals on Sunday.
Royal Challengers Bangalore made 149 for eight but could not defend the total with Delhi Capitals winning by four wickets.
