Virat Kohli, perhaps one of the best ODI batters of all time and unquestionably the best of his generation, has competed in three senior World Cups after leading the youth squad to victory in 2008. However, because of his adaptability, this excellent batter appeared to be a permanent player in any match that India played in any format of the game. But the tables seem to have turned now, there are talks that the ex-captain can be dropped from the team. The Indian squad selection committee is on the verge of pulling off the unthinkable.
Selectors have begun deliberating Virat Kohli’s T20 future with the Indian team, according to reports from the BCCI’s headquarters. Kohli’s form is causing anxiety among both national selectors and BCCI executives, according to reliable sources. In an interview with InsideSport, a senior BCCI official acknowledged that Kohli’s recent form is being discussed among selectors.
“He is a great servant of Indian cricket. But his form from some time now is a huge concern now for the national selectors and BCCI”, said the BCCI official.
When pressed for more information, the top board official stated that the matter would be handled by the Selectors. “See, we don’t get involved in the selection process. The fate of Virat and the other players must be decided by the selectors. We can’t pass judgment on them because we don’t know their situation. “It goes without saying that they are concerned about what is happening to him,” the official continued.
Without a doubt, Virat Kohli is having difficulties in the middle of the field. His dismissals, his replies, and, most significantly, his general demeanor do not inspire much trust in the fans. So, is it possible for Virat Kohli to be benched? When two of the current national selectors were approached about the situation, they refused to provide any further information at this time.
When asked about Kohli’s form, the Chairman of the National Selection Committee, Chetan Sharma, abruptly terminated the phone and said, “I don’t want to speak about it.” The following are the highlights of Virat Kohli’s performance in the IPL 2022:
41* against PBKS, 12 against KKR, 5 against RR, 48 against MI, 1 against CSK, 12 against DC, 0 against LSG, 0 against SRH, 9 against RR
