Former India selector: “Wouldn’t Want Any Kind Of Imposition On Virat Kohli.”
Former India selector Saba Karim was successful in convincing the team’s management to refrain from pressuring Kohli into playing against Zimbabwe.
Virat Kohli’s form was still being questioned after his dismal performance against England in the T20Is and ODIs. It is unknown if he would go to Zimbabwe for India’s series there as he was rested for the ODIs against West Indies that came after. He is also dropped from the team for the T20Is. The team management shouldn’t make Kohli play against Zimbabwe. Or tell him he won’t be joining the team for the T20 World Cup. If he doesn’t, says former India selector Saba Karim.
“In my opinion, the team management and selectors should first determine whether Virat Kohli is necessary for India’s preparation for the T20 World Cup or not. Additionally, when the selection committee determines Virat Kohli is crucial to the team’s success. I’ll devise a plan to get him back into top form. Saba During the segment of “Sports Over The Top” on Sports18, Karim said something.
He continued, “Rahul Dravid, the captain, or the selectors.” Would love to speak with him and try to move things forward from there.
If Virat Kohli wants to be taken into consideration for the World Cup T20, he shouldn’t feel compelled to play in this Zimbabwe series, in my opinion. As soon as you conclude that he is crucial to the team’s success, act accordingly. I believe I should speak with him as a result. I’ll say, “Okay, you can choose if you want to take a long sabbatical and return for the Asia Cup T20.” Alternatively, perhaps you’d like to come back and play the ODI versus Zimbabwe.
