This Indian Star likely to be rested for South Africa T20Is : Reports

South Africa Tour of India

Virat Kohli has continued struggling with his batting from last few months. In the ongoing IPL tournament his performance became worst as he was dismissed three times without scoring a single run. It’s really big concern for Team India before T20 World Cup as latter will be held in upcoming September – October in Australia.

It is expected that Chetan Sharma led Selection committee will allow Virat Kohli to take rest as he was playing lots of cricket from last few months in biobubble condition.

A senior BCCI official said PTI “Virat Kohli in all probability will be rested for the South Africa series. He has been playing a lot of cricket and has been in the bubble for a long time. It has been a policy decision regarding Kohli and other senior players that they will be given periodic breaks from time to time,”
“It has been a policy decision regarding Kohli and other senior players that they will be given periodic breaks from time to time.”

Team India will play a five match T20 series against south Africa from June 9 to June 19 at Delhi, Cuttack, Visakhapatnam, Rajkot, and Bengaluru.
Team India will travel to UK to play T20 series against Ireland and then play one test and 6 ODI matches against England in June and July.

Many experts from Ravi Shastri to Mohammed Azharuddin adviced former RCB skipper to take rest and pull out from remaining IPL matches. But Indian legend Sunil Gavaskar rebutted this and adviced him to play more to retrieve his form.“As long as the break doesn’t mean he is missing India matches. India matches should be No. 1 priority. It’s as simple as that. I think the thing is that if you don’t play, how do you get your form back? Sitting in the change room, it’s not going to get your form back. The more you play, the more chances you getting your form back,” Gavaskar said on Star Sports.
