Virender Sehwag says “It won’t be right to question his place in the Indian set-up” in T20 World Cup 2021. He has recognized that it’s not right to question Virat Kohli’s place. Also, as a batter in the T20I set-up. Sehwag’s comments came after Virat Kohli captained Team India for the last time. At CricBuzz Live, he said that Kohli hailed for his astounding consistency in the shortest format of the game over the years. Sehwag added that Indian cricket is blessed with plenty of talented young batters. But none of them can replace a player of the stature of Kohli.
“No matter how many youngsters come, there won’t be another Virat Kohli. With the kind of consistency he displays with the bat, even in this current side, it won’t be right to question his place in the T20 set-up. He will continue to play T20I for as long as he wants,” Virender Sehwag said.
“No one will give you stability in the batting unit better than Virat Kohli. You can’t just load your batting unit with power-hitters, you need a combination of experience and youth,” Sehwag said.
Moreover, players of the tournament in the 2014 and 2016 T20 World Cups. Kohli remains the world’s leading run-scorer in T20I cricket. Also, he has racked up 3227 runs in just 87 innings. At an average of 52.05 and a strike rate of 137.91 with 29 50-plus scores. Virat’s stint as T20I captain ended. On a disappointing note as Team India couldn’t make it past the Super 12 stage. But the champion cricketer has left with a record any captain would be proud of.
And then Virat Kohli led India in 50 T20Is, winning 32 and losing 16. He won bilateral T20I rubbers in Australia, England, New Zealand, South Africa, West Indies, and Sri Lanka.
“Lastly, thank You, Virat Kohli! You captained India brilliantly and gave us a lot of memorable moments in T20Is. I wish you continue scoring runs and winning games for the country,” Sehwag said.
