Cape Town - Indian cricket captain Virat Kohli believes that children are spending far too much time on their mobile phones these days.
Kohli, currently leading the struggling Royal Challengers Bangalore in the IPL, was speaking to the Times of India.
"Even if I was not playing professional cricket, I can't imagine myself not doing any physical activity at all," Kohli told the newspaper before being quoted on Cricinfo.
Kohli was responding to a survey conducted by manufacturers PUMA that that revealed that individuals spend, on average, four to five hours on their phones each day.
"Technology and social platforms, rather than being helpful, are starting to become harmful," Kohli said.
"People are losing sense of what are the important things to do, what are the things they need to do for their mental and physical development.
"[Kids need to] prioritise. Have a routine: when you need to do physical work, when you need to be on social media, when you need to play video games, and when you need to do your homework."
