-Board is considering alternative option in middle order
New Delhi (EMS). Recently, in a meeting between captain Rohit Sharma, Rahul Dravid, selection committee head Ajit Agarkar and other board officials, a roadmap has been prepared for the T20 World Cup to be held in West Indies and USA. There have been many big revelations in this.
According to the report, despite missing the Australia and South Africa series, Rohit and Jasprit Bumrah are sure to be in the team for the tournament, but Kohli may miss out. Despite a good record in T20Is and IPL, the board is probably looking at an alternative option in the middle-order. A BCCI official, on the condition of anonymity, said that Ishan Kishan can be selected in the middle order in place of Virat Kohli as they are looking for a player who can attack from the beginning. The official also said that Kohli’s IPL 2024 performance will also be considered.
The official also said that Kohli will be consulted about his future before taking any decision. Kohli has an excellent record. If he wants to move ahead, his decision will be respected. But for future plans, planning from now is necessary, hence Virat’s backup is being prepared. Let us tell you that after the failed journey of Cricket World Cup 2023, cricket fans are curious that Indian team’s star batsman Virat Kohli can now lead his country to the title in the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024. At the same time, Virat Kohli’s distance from T20 cricket is still raising questions.
