Former Indian cricketer and selector Dilip Vengsarkar stated that he cannot understand why the Indian selectors decided to rest Virat Kohli for the series against West Indies. Virat Kohli has not done well with the bat for quite some time and many people feel that he should have played against WI.
Virat Kohli is not a part of India's series against the West Indies as he was given a break by the selectors. Many former cricketers have raised their eyebrows regarding the same as they feel that the star Indian batter should have gone to the Caribbean as it would have helped him regain his form. With the T20 World Cup slated to begin in October this year, the Indian team management will want Virat Kohli at his very best as he is an integral part of the team.
Former Indian cricketer and selector Dilip Vengsarkar stated that he can't understand the selector's decision to rest Virat Kohli for the series against West Indies. Vengsarkar feels that Virat Kohli should play as many games as possible in order to regain his form.
"I don't understand why the Indian selectors have rested him for the West Indies series. If he is in their scheme of things for the T20 World Cup in Australia, he should play as many games as possible to get his form and confidence back. That would help him. Resting him sends a wrong signal because if he is going to Australia, then he will go without really big scores behind him. That would worry him as well. I always feel that when you are not scoring runs, it's important to play as many matches as possible and spend time in the middle, and get back among the runs. This game is all about confidence," Dilip Vengsarkar told Khaleej Times.
Virat Kohli had taken a short break from the game even after the IPL 2022 as he skipped the T20I series against South Africa.
