After the stunning victory in the Test Series, before the T-20 Series starting from Friday, the captain of the Indian team Virat Kohli cleared the doubts about the opening. Virat Kohli said that Rohit Shamra and Lokesh Rahul will open the T-20 Series. However, when asked about R. Ashwin, Kohli got angry and said that the question should have some meaning before asking any question.
Before the start of the five-match T20 series against England, captain Virat Kohli said that if Rohit Sharma plays, Lokesh Rahul and Rohit Sharma will open. This means that Shikhar Dhawan will not be replaced in the XI. Kohli further said that if Rohit Sharma rests or Rahul is injured, Shikhar Dhawan will get a chance. But Rohit Sharma and Lokesh Rahul will be in the playing XI.
India captain Virat Kohli said there was no place for Ravi Shankar Ashwin in the small cricket format due to the superb performance of Washington Sundar. Virat Kohli was furious when questioned about the possibility of Ashwin, who is in superb form, returning to the small cricket format team. “Washington is doing pretty well,” said Virat Kohli. No two players of the same discipline can be in the team.
Indian captain Virat Kohli further said that there should be some logic in asking questions. You tell me where can I keep Ashwin in the team? There can be no place for them in the team. Washington is already on the team. It is easy to ask a question but you have to know the logic first.
“Everyone has to understand that we have made an arrangement for the Indian cricket team,” said Indian captain Kohli. We hope everyone will follow suit. There is no possibility of an explanation. Preparations for the T20 World Cup in India later this year will begin with this T20 series against England. Captain Virat Kohli has also given some hints regarding the selection of the team.
