India’s two batting stalwarts, Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have not featured in a T20I ever since India lost to England in the semifinal of the 2022 T20 World Cup. While Hardik Pandya has been handling the captaincy duties, youngsters have been fitted to replace Kohli. 

Now, as Ajit Agarkar will be in the Caribbean, he might discuss Rohit and Kohli’s T20I futures. As per the report, Agarkar will be asking the two stalwarts to stick to the longer formats (ODIs and Tests) while a young squad gets formed under Hardik Pandya. 

“The time to bring in young blood in the T20 setup is overdue. They need enough opportunities and exposure before the big event to settle into their roles. Agarkar will make it clear to both Rohit and Kohli that they should concentrate on ODI and Test cricket,” a source was quoted as saying in the report.
