Mumbai: Few would disagree that Virat Kohli is one of the greatest cricketers of all time, even if he is in poor form. After 2019, the actor has not scored a single century. Even his place in the national team has been questioned by many. But there are those who say Kohli will return to form after a long break. Others are of the opinion that Kohli should be played to rest.
Kohli is currently resting. Deepak Hooda has performed well in the team instead of star. There are those who argue that Hooda should be played instead of Kohli. Shreya Iyer is also a threat to Kohli’s position. But former India player Saba Karim believes that Kohli will play at number three in the T20 World Cup squad.

He also thinks that Hooda or Shreyas will be with the team as a back up. “If there is no injury, Kohli will play at number one. But it’s time for the selectors to think about who they want as Kohli’s back-up. If the substitute is good, he should be played regularly. Shreyas is expected to return to his natural style. But if it is ready to try again, HUDA should also be given a chance. The fact that Hooda can also play panther will benefit the team,” Saba Karim said.

Kohli will be back in the Indian squad for the Asia Cup. With this only one of Shreyas or Hooda will make it to the team. Earlier, former Indian player Wasim Jaffer also came out in support of Kohli. Jaffer also wants Kohli to play at number three.
Kohli should continue to bat at number three. Rohit-Rahul alliance will open. Rishabh Pant, Sanju Samson and Ishan Kishan can also contribute a lot for the team,” Jaffer said.
