Former Team India cricketer K Srikkanth Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are expected to play in the upcoming T20 World Cup, which is scheduled to start from June 1. Let us tell you that Rohit and Virat have not played a single match in this format since the T-20 World Cup semi-finals. But he has been recalled to the team for the upcoming three-match series against Afghanistan.
Srikanth said that if Rohit is available for selection then the team management cannot exclude him. He said the 36-year-old player is sad after losing to Australia in the ODI World Cup final and would like to retire with the T20 World Cup, which will be held in West Indies and USA. Srikkanth also said that, Virat Kohli will definitely feature in the tournament as he is in great form.
K Srikkanth’s big statement regarding Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli
In a video on his YouTube channel, Srikkanth said, “Virat Kohli is sure. He is in great form. Rohit Sharma is probably confident about how he scored in the World Cup. He will regroup and try to perform well in the IPL. If Rohit Sharma says I am available, you cannot say that you will drop him.
At the end of the day, Rohit Sharma is also hurt by the fact that he has lost a World Cup. He would like to retire at least with the World Cup in hand. He was there in the 2007 World Cup. He would like to do something similar, win the World Cup and then retire.
Virat Kohli, considered one of the greatest players of all time, has not yet won the T20 World Cup. He was the top run-scorer in the last edition of the T20 World Cup and is in ‘great form’ at the moment. Regarding him, Srikant had said that, “Virat Kohli would definitely like to win the T20 World Cup. Apart from this, the T20 World Cup took place only 13 months ago last year. Virat Kohli was in extraordinary form. If they say they’re available, I don’t think you can skip them.
