Virat Kohli responds to Ravi Shastri’s remarks on his T20 WC squad selection: I may be known for promotion, but I still have what it takes | Cricket News

Virat Kohli recently expressed his confidence in his abilities to play in the upcoming T20 World Cup squad after scoring 77 runs against Punjab Kings in a recent match, earning him the player of the match award. During a commentary session for the Gujarat Titans vs Mumbai Indians match, Kevin Pietersen suggested that players like Kohli could help grow T20 cricket globally by bringing a youthful and dynamic approach to the sport. However, former coach Ravi Shastri disagreed with this perspective, emphasizing the importance of winning the competition and advocating for a similar youthful and dynamic approach as the victorious 2007 T20 World Cup squad.

Kohli’s impressive performance in front of an enthusiastic Chinnaswamy crowd was crucial in securing a 4-wicket victory for RCB. His inning of 77 runs off 49 balls, which included 11 fours and 2 sixes, showcased his talent and made a strong case for his selection in the Indian team for the 2024 T20 World Cup in June. Despite being dismissed while attempting a big shot, Kohli’s skills and determination were evident throughout the game.
