CricketBCCI selectors contemplate to drop Virat Kohli from T20 World Cup squad: Report

Srinagar: The rumours are going wild as the multiple reports have claimed that BCCI Selectors are seriously thinking on to drop star batter Virat Kohli from T20 World Cup 2024 squad.

The T20 World Cup 2024 is slated to be played in the USA and West Indies in June. BCCI secretary Jay Shah has already confirmed Rohit as the captain of India for the T20 World Cup but about Kohli, he said the former captain’s role in T20Is will be discussed in due course.

As things stand now, the selectors are in a fix about Virat Kohli’s position in T20Is. Both Rohit and Kohli decided to take a break from the shortest format after India’s loss in the semi-final of the T20 World Cup in Australia in 2022.

If the latest report in The Telegraph is to be believed then the doubt has only gotten stronger.

According to the report, Kohli “hasn’t been able to cope with the team’s needs in the shortest format.” He will only be considered if he has a “superlative IPL” for the Royal Challengers Bangalore.

Sources said that the national selectors and the team management are ready to take some harsh decisions keeping the T20 World Cup in mind.

The final call might rest on chief selector Ajit Agarkar as the BCCI top officials don’t want to get involved in this.
“It remains a very delicate matter and not many are willing to get involved,” the source said.

Virat Kohli, who is the only cricketer to score more than 4000 T20I runs. Meanwhile Kohli is set to join RCB camp ahead of IPL 2024 after taking rest from cricket.
