Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are currently on a break from cricket after the conclusion of the 2023 ODI World Cup. Both of the senior players of the Indian team won’t be a part of the white-ball series consisting of three ODIs and three T20Is but will return for the two-match Test series.
There has been a lot of talk regarding whether Kohli and Sharma should continue playing the shortest format. While both of them showed their prowess in the ODI World Cup, some still think the duo need to show themselves that they are better than the youngsters.
