Virat Kohli could be dropped from India’s squad for the T20 World Cup, set to be played in June in West Indies and the USA.

Former Indian team captain Virat Kohli is going to make a comeback from IPL 2024 after about two months. But meanwhile, news is coming that Kohli may be dropped from the T20 World Cup team.

Virat Kohli has not played any T20I cricket since T20 World Cup 2022. Although he was named in the squad for the Afghanistan T20I series alongside Rohit Sharma. In such a situation, he can be kept out of the T20 World Cup squad. BCCI Secretary Jay Shah later confirmed the appointment of Rohit Sharma as the captain for the T20 World Cup. But when he was asked about Kohli’s T20I future, he remained silent.
