Former Pakistan cricketer Danish Kaneria is of the opinion that dropping Virat Kohli from India’s squad for the Zimbabwe series is an injustice for him. Kaneria also added that the team management should have clarity with handling Kohli and he might also be dropped from the Asia Cup squad.

BCCI announced the Indian team for the Zimbabwe series recently and many senior players have been rested for the tour. Virat Kohli is also one of the batters who was rested for the series. Shikhar Dhawan will lead the Indian team for the series and will look to register a clean sweep over the minnows. Deepak Chahar is also back from injury and has returned to the squad.

Former Pakistan spinner Danish Kaneria is of the opinion that dropping Kohli for the series was an injustice for him.

"Virat Kohli should have played in this series. Does BCCI think that he should only feature in major tournaments? But if he fails there, then once again there would be talks about his lack of form. I think that is an injustice for Virat Kohli," Kaneria said on his YouTube channel.

Kohli has been going through a slump in form recently and has been struggling hard to score an international hundred for a long time. He is expected to make his international return in the Asia Cup but Kaneria thinks otherwise. 

"You have to be very clear with how you want to handle him. While he was rested for the entire West Indies tour, he surely should have been there for the Zimbabwe series. He could have found his form in the 50-over games and then played the Asia Cup. But it seems now that he might be dropped for the Asia Cup as well," he stated.
