Virat Kohli Asia Cup: The form of Indian cricket player Virat Kohli has become the talk of the cricket world. In recent years, it has been hard for him to make a difference for India on the international stage. The experienced batter hasn’t been able to turn his good starts into big runs. The Indian team is worried about how he is playing. Danish Kaneria, a former Pakistani cricketer, thinks Virat Kohli might be dropped for the Asia Cup because he wasn’t on the Indian team that played Zimbabwe.

The Indian team has given the 33-year-old player a longer break. He didn’t go on the ODI tour to the West Indies and now he won’t go on the ODI tour to Zimbabwe. In August, the Asia Cup will be held in the UAE. Danesh Kaneria talked about the new Indian team for the ODI series against Zimbabwe on his YouTube channel.
The former cricket player said that instead of Ishan Kishan, India should have put Virat Kohli on the team. He also said that Sanju Samson was already on the team, so Kohli could have replaced Ishan. Kaneria also said that it was unfair to Kohli. According to a quote from Crictracker, he said.
“Kohli should have been in the team instead of Kishan”, Danesh said:
“India shouldn’t have put Ishan Kishan on the team. If they hadn’t, Sanju Samson would have been able to play all three ODIs without having to worry about extra pressure. Kohli should have been in the team instead of Kishan.”
“Virat Kohli ought to have taken part in this series. Does BCCI think he should only play in the biggest tournaments? But if he doesn’t do well there, people will talk about his lack of form again. I think it’s unfair to Virat Kohli,” he continued.
Decide on a strategy for dealing with Virat Kohli: Danish Kaneria
Danish Kaneria, a former cricket player for Pakistan, also said that the Indian selectors and management need to be clear about Virat Kohli’s role and future. He said that the India batter who had been playing for a long time should have been on the team for the Zimbabwe series. He also said, though, that Virat Kohli might not be on the Asia Cup team.

“You have to know exactly how you want to deal with him. Even though he was rested for the whole trip to the West Indies, he should have been there for the series against Zimbabwe. He could have played the 50-over games to get back into shape and then played in the Asia Cup. But it looks like he might also be left off the team for the Asia Cup,” said Danish Kaneria.
