Virat Kohli says restricting time spent on social media is the biggest reason for his and India’s form as they prepare for a Champions Trophy final against Pakistan expected to be watched by more than one billion people.

The defending champions have hammered Pakistan, South Africa and Bangladesh en route to the final, with captain Kohli averaging 253 from four innings.

The key, Kohli says, is to avoid negativity and distractions on social media where he has a fanbase of 65.6 million people across his Facebook, Twitter and Instagram accounts.
