Former India captain Virat Kohli, currently playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League (IPL) has been terribly out of form and with T20 World Cup set to take place this year in October, his place in the squad is no longer guaranteed.
A top BCCI official confirmed that his current form is a major concern for the selectors, who are hopeful that the top Indian batter gets back to form sooner than later.
“He is a great servant of Indian cricket. But his form from some time now is a huge concern now for the national selectors and BCCI,” as per a top BCCI official.
“See we don’t intervene in the selection matters. Selectors have to take a call on Virat and others. We can’t give our judgement to them. Obviously, they are concerned about what is happening to him,” he further added.
In the 15th edition of IPL Kohli has scored 128 runs and has a strike rate of less than 120. He has so far hit only 11 fours and 2 sixes this year, making it one of the worst seasons he has ever had.
