Several experts and fans have put question mark over Virat Kohli’s spot in the Indian team for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024.

As per many experts, Kohli’s spot as an anchor in the Indian team is not required any in the shortest format of the game with emergence of many talented aggressive batters.

Responding to the development, Kohli reportedly wanted clarity from the selection committee about his place in India’s T20 World Cup squad.

As per sources, the Ajit Agarkar-led selection committee is reportedly keen on having Kohli as Rohit’s opening partner for the world event.  

Reports published in some sections of the media suggested that the possibility of having Kohli as an opener was discussed seriously in a meeting held in Mumbai last week where captain Rohit, head coach Rahul Dravid and chief sector Ajit Agarkar were present.

There has been a lot of speculation about Kohli’s spot in India’s T20 World Cup squad which is slated to be announced in a fortnight but all the doubts have reportedly been put to rest.

The star batsman has been opening regularly for the Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) in the last few seasons of the Indian Premier League (IPL). He is currently the Orange Cap holder with 361 runs in seven matches at a strike rate of 147 in the ongoing edition of IPL. He has already notched up a century in 2024 edition of the mega event.
