Team India continued his dream run to enter into the final of the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024 after beating formidable England by 68 runs in the second semifinal on Thursday.

Captain Rohit Sharma led from the front with his aggressive batting as he scored 57 off 39 balls to set a solid foundation after the early dismissals of star batsman Virat Kohli and wicketkeeper-batsman Rishabh Pant. 

Despite the winning run by India, Kohli’s poor form is one lingering concern for the side. The star batter has been horribly short of runs since the opening match of the edition, and it didn’t change in Guyana when he was dismissed for nine off as many deliveries in the third over.

However, in response, Rohit said that he wasn’t too worried about the star batter’s form.

“Kohli is a quality player. Any player can go through that. We do understand his class and his importance in all these big games. Form is never a problem because when you have played cricket for 15 years, it isn’t a problem. He is looking good, the intent is there. He’s probably saving for the finals,” said Rohit during a recent interaction.
