Virat Kohli will be available from the second T20 match against England, but the former Indian cricketer feels that he is not sure in the team. He will be selected in the team only on the basis of his form.
Many senior India players will not be available in the first match of the three-match T20I series against England. The players, who were part of the Test team, have been rested in the first T20 match. Although many players including Virat Kohli will be available for selection from the second T20 match, but the sword hangs in place of Virat in the team. Media reports have claimed that if Virat’s bat does not get runs in the next 10 days, then the selectors can think of dropping him from the T20 team.
Former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer has said that now Virat’s place in India’s T20 team is not confirmed. Only if his form is good will he be able to make a place in the Indian team. If he is unable to score runs, then other players can be given a chance in his place.
In the last few series, players like Shreyas Iyer, Deepak Hooda and Suryakumar Yadav have done well in the middle order and have staked claim for the number three spot. Virat Kohli has been playing at this position for a long time in India’s T20 team, but his poor form in the last few years has put his place in the team at risk.
Virat Kohli could not do anything special in IPL also Virat Kohli could not do anything special in IPL 2022 too. He batted at a strike rate of just 115 and scored two half-centuries. In such a situation, it will be difficult for Virat to save his place in the team. Virat has not played any T20 match since IPL. In the only Test match too, he scored 20 and 11 runs. Not much time is left for the World Cup to be held in Australia this year. In such a situation, every match is important for India and everyone’s eyes will be on Virat’s performance.
Edgbaston Test players Rishabh Pant, Ravindra Jadeja and Shreyas Iyer will be available for selection from the second T20I but Virat’s place in the team is not confirmed. In such a situation, there is a lot of discussion about his place in the team.
If Virat does not walk now, it will be difficult
Wasim Jaffer said in a conversation with a sports website, “Kohli will play, no doubt about it, but his form will be all eyes. His strike rate in IPL has not been very good. His form is also not very good. Deepak Hooda Give you an option with your bowling. That will be taken into account. Though no one else will get a chance to replace Kohli as of now, but it may happen in the future. I would say that Kohli gets a chance to play a few matches. And maybe after that the selectors will take a decision. I don’t think his place in the team is confirmed because a lot of players have done brilliantly. In the last T20 World Cup, questions were raised on strike rate, style of play and many other things . I think we should keep looking to the future.”
These players are contenders
In the last six matches India have played against South Africa and Ireland, Shreyas Iyer, Deepak Hooda, Hardik Pandya and Suryakumar Yadav have batted in the opening four spots. Deepak Hooda scored a century against Ireland. At the same time, the place of Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya is not confirmed in the middle order.
However, former England spinner Ashley Giles said that every player’s class is permanent and form comes and goes, but Virat has not been able to perform as expected for a long time. In such a situation, it has been said in many media reports that his career can be decided in the next 10 days.
