India have a home season lined-up with the series against the visiting West Indies side. Former Aussie player Brad Hogg wants Virat Kohli to skip the upcoming matches against the Windies to allow Rohit Sharma to complete a proper takeover of the team. He said:
“They will face West Indies and can turn-around things from that series. It would be wise if Virat takes a break from the upcoming matches to allow Rohit Sharma to show authority in the dressing room with the next generation of players,” said Hogg.
“Once that is settled, Virat can comeback for the Sri Lanka series. For me, Virat not knowing how to move the game forward after his captaincy saga, is an issue. It is not deliberate or ego, it is just the change of role for the former skipper,” he added.
