Rohit and Virat are ready to play T20 series, now the future of their T20I career is in the hands of selectors.


After the end of the South Africa tour, Team India now has to play a three-match T20 series against Afghanistan. Team India will be announced soon for this series. At this time, there is only one question in everyone’s mind whether Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli will play for Team India in this T20 series or not.

Meanwhile, a recent report said that veteran Indian cricketers Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have expressed their desire to play in the upcoming T20 series against Afghanistan. Let us tell you that, since the 2022 T20 World Cup, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have not played a single T20 match for India.

The selection committee is scheduled to meet on Friday to finalize the squad for the three T20 matches starting with Afghanistan on January 11, followed by a five-match Test series against England on January 25. Fans are eagerly waiting to see Rohit and Kohli playing in a T-20 match on the field once again.

However, with key players like Hardik Pandya and Suryakumar Yadav unavailable due to injuries, the selection committee will be faced with the challenge of appointing a new captain for the T20Is. Additionally, the committee is considering resting fast bowling pair Mohammed Siraj and Jasprit Bumrah for the upcoming matches against Afghanistan.

Both Siraj and Bumrah played important roles in India’s recent win over South Africa, ending the two-match Test series with a draw. In such a situation, the selection committee will try to keep Bumrah and Siraj fit for the Test series against England by giving them rest.

India’s three-match T20 series against Afghanistan is scheduled to begin on January 11 at the Punjab Cricket Association IS Bindra Stadium, Mohali. After this, the second and third T20 matches will be played on January 14 and 17 at Holkar Cricket Stadium, Indore and M. Chinnaswamy Stadium, Bengaluru respectively.
