Rohit and Agarkar’s addressing questions over Kohli’s strike rate


Amid the myriad questions surrounding India’s squad selection for the 2024 T20 World Cup in the USA and West Indies, one heated debate centered on Virat Kohli’s declining strike rate in the ongoing IPL 2024.

While Rohit Sharma remained nonchalant in response to this query, Chairman of the Indian Senior Men’s Selection Committee, Ajit Agarkar, took the lead in addressing the issue.

The former Indian pace bowler dismissed it as a non-issue during the selection meeting. He underscored Kohli’s invaluable experience in crucial ICC tournaments and its potential impact on the grand stage.

“We didn’t even discuss it. Kohli’s current form is excellent, no cause for concern. His wealth of experience in significant ICC events is pivotal. That experience counts for a lot, especially in high-pressure situations.”

Agarkar also asserted that even if matches see high-scoring encounters similar to those in the ongoing IPL, the team possesses the necessary firepower to compete.

“Even if matches mirror the IPL’s high-scoring trend, we have the skill set to match it. Ultimately, the pressure in a World Cup is incomparable.”

As discussions from the press conference spread across social media today, here’s how Twitter reacted to Agarkar and Rohit’s perspectives on the Virat Kohli strike rate issue.
