Former Indian batsman Sunil Gavaskar has given his opinion on whether Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma will not be selected in the T20I team now? He has said that the selectors wanted to rest him.
Indian team captain Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have not got a place in the three-match T20 series against New Zealand. He was also dropped against Sri Lanka. Former Indian batsman Sunil Gavaskar has given a statement regarding this and has told whether the T20I career of these two veteran batsmen is left or not?
Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have not appeared in a single T20I series since T20 World Cup 2022. Even all the matches have been captained by Hardik Pandya. In such a situation, the question is arising whether Kohli and Rohit’s leaves have been cut from the T20 team? The answer is that these veteran players have been asked to focus on ODI and Test cricket.
Speaking to India Today, Sunil Gavaskar has said that the new selection committee wants to give more opportunities to new players and hence Kohli and Rohit have been rested, who have been given a break to keep them fresh for the Australia series starting February 9. is required. Apart from this, the ODI World Cup is also to be held in India this year.
Ishaan Kishan’s return to Team India’s playing XI confirmed, but this is the biggest question
“The way I see it, the next T20 World Cup is in 2024. The new selection committee that has come in wants to give more opportunities to young players. It doesn’t mean that Kohli and Rohit are out of consideration now,” he said. If his form continues to impress in 2023, he will be retained. Other factors have come to the fore with the start of the Test series against Australia, where the selectors may have wanted to rest him for the big competition, so that he can play against the Australians. Get a fresh start against the team and it will benefit India.”
