Sunil Gavaskar again made a big statement on Virat Kohli, know what he said this time

Sunil Gavaskar gave another big verdict on Virat Kohli: If the completed practice match against Bangladesh is any indication, Yashshwi Jaiswal does not seem likely to make the Indian squad for the T20 World Cup. Virat Kohli has reached America late due to some personal reasons. Perhaps this is the reason why he did not take the field in the practice match against Bangladesh. Jaiswal could have got a chance in such a situation, but captain and coach Sanju went ahead with Samson. However, captain Rohit Sharma has made it clear that the squad for the key matches has not been finalized yet. But despite Virat Kohli’s absence in practice matches, the way Jaiswal has been ignored. Looking at him, the chances of him getting a chance in the playing eleven are very low.

Former Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar also agrees with this big decision of the team. He believes that Virat Kohli should open the innings with Rohit Sharma. Because Jaiswal is currently not in a form that gives the team any special hope. On the other hand, Virat Kohli has ended the campaign at the top with over 700 runs in IPL 2024.

Speaking on Star Sports after the first match of T20 World Cup 2024 between USA and Canada, Gavaskar said, ‘The kind of form Virat Kohli is in. He should open the innings with Rohit Sharma. Good players are good players. The kind of form Kohli has shown in IPL 2024. He should open the innings. It’s nice to talk about left-handed and right-handed combinations on TV, but good players are good players. No matter where he bats.

Continuing his point, he said, ‘Yashshwi Jaiswal is not in that kind of form. As we saw it during the Test series. Let us tell you that Jaiswal was in great form against England. Seeing his brilliant batting, the selectors have included him in the Indian team.
