The Indian cricket team’s recently concluded South Africa tour has ended on a good note. Let us tell you that during the Test series of this tour, the team has made history by winning the Cape Town Test match. So now once again after red ball cricket, in white ball cricket, the Indian team is going to face the Afghanistan cricket team in a three-match T20 series.

However, the future of former captain Virat Kohli and captain Rohit Sharma in the shortest format of the game is in limbo. It is noteworthy that Rohit and Kohli, who are called the heart and heartbeat of Indian cricket, played the last match for India against England in the T20 World Cup in November 2022. Both the players have not played any T20 match for almost a year.

However, both the players have expressed their desire to play in the T20 World Cup to be held in West Indies and USA in June this year. So now the question arises whether the selectors of the Indian team are ready to select both the players.

Let us tell you that according to some recent media reports, Rohit’s place is not in danger in T20 cricket, because he was seen performing amazingly in the World Cup 2023. Apart from this, the place of injured Hardik Pandya is also considered confirmed. But this is not the case with Virat Kohli.

Kohli may be out of T20

If PTI’s latest media reports are to be believed, Kohli’s strike rate is a big reason, and the selection committee led by Ajit Agarkar is not keen on including Rohit and Kohli in the team together.

It is noteworthy that selectors chairman Ajit Agarkar had reached South Africa some time ago. Here he talked to both the experienced players and both of them declared themselves available for the T20 World Cup. Well, now it will be worth watching whether Kohli gets a place in T20 cricket for India or not?
