During the first half of the Indian Premier League (IPL) 2024, legendry Indian cricketer Sunil Gavaskar questioned star batsman Virat Kohli’s strike rate and his approach in the T20 format.

There were also speculations that Kohli might not be picked for the Indian T20 World Cup team owing to his poor strike rate in the format. The modern-era great has long been criticised for his intent in T20s, especially against spinners and in the middle overs.
