  • Virat Kohli included in the Asian Cup squad
  • Kohli scored just 81 runs in 4 T20 Internationals in 2022
  • Kohli’s strike rate is lower than the team’s current strategy.

Virat Kohli: India team’s star batsman, Virat Kohli, is part of the team at the Asian Cup. He made his comeback in the team on auto after being cut from the West Indies and Zimbabwe tours. He is also available for the selected team for the T20 World Cup. Since last year’s T20 World Cup, Kohli has scored 17, 52, another 11 in four T20 innings. In this case, the big question is whether team management will allow Kohli to play his style or will he have to hit aggressively early in the innings?

Will Kohli change his hitting style?,

The team is hitting aggressively under Rohit’s captaincy. He himself is also batting in Atishi’s attitude. The Indian captain has scored around 450 runs in 16 matches with a strike rate of 145. On the other hand, Kohli has scored just 81 runs in four T20 matches in 2022 with a strike rate of 128.57. In the last tour, Rishabh Pant and Suryakumar Yadav also showed an aggressive attitude opening the innings. On the tour of England and the West Indies, the hit man surprised everyone by opening the innings with Pant and Suryakumar Yadav.

Deepak Hooda is also in fine form and scored a century opening the innings against Ireland. Hooda has won everyone’s hearts by hitting well at number three. Although it will be difficult for him to make it to the team in the opening games of the Asian Cup, he will be a strong option because of his bowling game.

Is Kohli a misfit on the team?,

In such a situation, Kohli may seem to many to be a misfit in the team, but the coaches don’t want to risk dropping him in big tournaments like the Asian Cup and the T20 World Cup. Still, a player of Kohli’s caliber shouldn’t give up in a heartbeat. He scored runs at a strike rate of around 150 at T20 Internationals in 2019 and 2020, when he was in good shape. If Kohli’s same old form comes out in the Asian Cup, then the team in which he is currently seen as a misfit will be the biggest beneficiary.
