Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are Free to Decide their T20I Career

Virat and Rohit are free to decide their T20 career

The BCCI has given Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma total autonomy to determine their future in the quickest manner possible.

The cricket pair, who haven’t played in T20Is since the 2022 T20 World Cup, are now free to decide for themselves. After India’s disappointing performance in the last Twenty20 World Cup, the selectors decided to field a young team in Twenty20 Internationals.

According to recent events, the BCCI has rejected earlier allegations that suggested Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma be barred from T20I cricket. With the 2024 T20 World Cup, the board has given Rohit and Virat the freedom to decide how far they want to take their careers in T20I cricket.

According to reports, the BCCI would back the renowned cricket players’ future decisions and won’t put any pressure on them. If both players are fit and wish to compete in the upcoming T20 World Cup in 2024, the BCCI will put them in the squad and offer them every assistance.

Virat and Rohit have not yet made a firm decision as of now. They are anticipated to return for the tour against South Africa, having missed out on the ODI World Cup and the five-match T20I series against Australia. An important step on India’s path to the 2024 T20 World Cup is the announcement of VVS Laxman as the new head coach before the South Africa series.

Winner of the 2007 T20 World Cup Rohit Sharma might view the 2024 tournament as his last chance to win the championship. It is anticipated that he would decide to proceed in the shortest format prior to the South Africa series. There is conjecture that Hardik Pandya may be selected as the T20I team’s next full-time captain if Rohit decides to step down.
