Former Chief Selector MSK Prasad wants Virat Kohli to take ‘Significant Break’

Selectors to speak with Virat Kohli before SA series

Virat Kohli has continued his lean phase in the ongoing IPL tournament. He has struggled to find his form and has been dismissed for two golden ducks in the tournament. His highest score 58 came against Gujarat Titans but strike rate was not good for T20 format. Few days back, Ian Bishop said it’s huge concern for Virat as he was getting out of various types of bowlers.

Virat Kohli left Indian National Team and his IPL team RCB captaincy last year. He has scored 216 runs from 11 innings/matches with very poor strike rate of 111.92. Whereas his team India partner Rohit Sharma has also suffered for his batting performance. He started well in almost all the matches but unfortunately didn’t convert into big. It’s a huge concern for Team India before T20 world cup as their two great players are searching their form till now.

Rohit, Virat Kohli, KL Rahul Indispensable If Fit : MSK Prasad

Many experts from Ravi Shastri to Mohammed Azharuddin adviced former RCB skipper to take rest and pull out from remaining IPL matches. Former chief selector MSK Prasad stated that Virat Kohli should take a ‘significant break’ and come back completely fresh before Asia Cup.
Speaking to PTI, Prasad told that Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul will be indispensable for the T20 world cup, if they are fit.

“These three are indispensable if fit. There is no way that you can leave any one of them for the World T20. But yes, if I look at numbers, I might just try someone like Shikhar Dhawan at the opening slot and check Rahul out at No.4. He has a T20 hundred in Manchester some years back in middle-order, so why not,” he told PTI.

“But yes, I want Virat to take a significant break and before the Asia Cup, he should be fresh, up and running,” added Prasad.
