Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma haven’t played a T20I since the last World Cup in 2022. The selectors have preferred young players over the two veterans, with Hardik Pandya getting captain’s armband.
However, Dinesh Karthik is sure of Virat and Rohit’s participation in the 2024 T20 World Cup in West Indies and the United States of America.
The wicket-keeper batter came on Cricbuzz a day after Australia defeated India in the final of the ICC World Cup 2023.
The Men in Blue put up just 240 runs on the scorecard. Travis Head slammed a hundred and shared a 194-run partnership with Marnus Labuschagne, who struck a well compiled fifty.
“Players will take time to come to the terms after World Cup final heartbreak. I feel for Virat, Rohit, Mohammed Shami and Jasprit. Rohit led from the front and Virat was the highest run-scorer,” he said on Cricbuzz.
“This was Virat and Rohit’s last ODI World Cup. It is not the right time to talk about it as players are still hurt. Virat and Rohit will surely play the next T20 World Cup in six months’ time. They have been terrific for India and can still contribute,” he added.
