Who is going to blink first? Will it be the BCCI or Virat Kohli?
The T20 batter Kohli is using his memory, but it is now clear that his strategies aren’t quite working for him in this quick-paced, high-impact game. It also prevents the Indian squad from using their resources to their fullest potential.
The 20s or 35s are on the way, but not at a 150 strike rate (it was 102 plus against Pakistan on Sunday).
Can Kohli therefore be left off the T20 World Cup roster? Even if he isn’t scoring runs at a blistering rate, not in your wildest dreams.
But after the T20 World Cup in Australia, would Kohli be able to play for India in this format? Even if those in decision-making roles are aware of the solution, they won’t divulge it.
Since the “Desert Debacle” last year, when India prematurely exited the T20 World Cup, this question has been circulating across Indian cricket.
