It has been a very normal year for Virat Kohli and it has become a big challenge for the BCCI selectors with an eye on the T20 World Cup. Virat Kohli is one of the best players in the world. Right now he has been given a place in the series against England but has been rested for the upcoming West Indies tour.

Virat Kohli is an integral part of the Indian team, not giving him a place in the team itself seems a question mark. Indian cricket also seems divided on this issue. Some want that they should be given rest for some time, then some say that only by playing cricket continuously they will return to form. The former India captain hasn’t scored an international century for the past three years but this year has seen an alarming decline in his overall form.

Kohli scored just 341 runs in the Indian Premier League (IPL) this season in 16 innings at a modest strike rate of 115.98. He then scored 11 and 20 in the fifth Test against England. Also, Kohli has played just two T20Is since the end of the T20 World Cup last year.

Former India captain Kapil Dev has said that if top class spinner like Ravichandran Ashwin can be rested during Test matches, as he was in India’s five-Test series against England last year and at Edgbaston this month, Why can’t Kohli be kept out of T20Is? “Yes, now the situation is such that you can be forced to drop Kohli from the T20 playing XI. If the world No. 2 bowler Ashwin can be dropped from the Test team then (once) the world No. 1 The batsman can also be dropped,” Kapil told a news agency.

“Virat is not batting at the level we have seen him do over the years. He has earned a name because of his performance but if he is not performing, you cannot keep performing youngsters out of the team. I want to compete for a place in the team so that these youngsters try to outperform Virat.

Kohli is one of the players who have been rested for India’s upcoming series in the West Indies. He was also rested for India’s first T20I against England on Thursday, which they won by 50 runs. Kapil feels that if Kohli is “rested” for the West Indies T20Is, it will be considered a “drop”.

He said, “You can call it rest and someone else will drop it. Everyone will have their own opinion. Obviously, if the selectors don’t pick him (Virat Kohli), it could be because a big player is not performing. doing.”

“When you have a lot of options, give in-form players a place in the team,” Kapil said. “You can’t just go by reputation but you have to look for current form. You can be an established player but that doesn’t mean you will be given chances even if you fail five matches in a row,” he added.
