Virat Kohli’s Impressive T20 Performance Boosts His Chances of Joining India’s Squad for the Upcoming Tournament

Virat Kohli, in a playful jab at his former coach Ravi Shastri, stated that his name is now synonymous with promoting T20 cricket globally. Kohli’s impressive 77-run innings against Punjab Kings in the IPL match on Saturday cemented his case for inclusion in the Indian squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup in June. During a commentary session for the Gujarat Titans vs Mumbai Indians match, Kevin Pietersen suggested that the T20 World Cup in the USA could benefit from someone like Kohli to help grow the game on a global scale.

In response, Shastri emphasized the importance of winning the competition rather than focusing solely on growth. He cited the success of the youthful Indian squad that won the 2007 T20 World Cup as an example of what it takes to win a tournament. Despite being dismissed while attempting another big shot, Kohli demonstrated his capabilities on the field and further strengthened his case for selection in India’s squad for the upcoming tournament.
