Team India coach Rahul Dravid gave good news to the young players. He assured to give more opportunities in T20. That is.. Did he say that Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have no place in T20? What is the secret in Rahul’s words?
Team India’s defeat in the second T20 against Sri Lanka hurt the fans a lot. They failed to reach the target of 206 runs and lost the match by 16 runs. In this order, head coach Rahul Dravid made interesting comments. He said that young players need to be patient. There will be huge changes in the T20 team in the future.
The summary of Dravid’s words seems to be that seniors Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma may not get any more opportunities in T20 international matches. That is why it is clear that they are giving full support to the young players. BCCI has already appointed Harthik Pandya as the full captain for T20s. Now if you listen to Dravid’s words, it is clear cut that it will be difficult for senior players to play in T20s.
Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have been the pillars of Indian cricket for a decade. He acted as the batsman and captain of the team in all formats. However, after India’s defeat in the semi-finals of the T20 World Cup last year, there were demands to keep both of them aside and look towards young players in this format. In the last New Zealand tour, now these two seniors are not in the team for the T20 series against Sri Lanka. It seems that there will be no chance to see them in T20s. If that happens, we have to see the brilliance of Virat and Rohit in IPL.
