Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli will definitely play T20 World Cup 2024 if they are fit, says Ashish Nehra


India captain Rohit Sharma and senior batter Virat Kohli have not played in the T20Is since T20 World Cup 2022. The senior duo even opted out of India’s white-ball leg in the tour of South Africa, just six months away from the T20 World Cup 2024.

Speculation is rife if the senior duo will play in the world tournament in June, set to be hosted jointly by the West Indies and the United States of America. Former India cricketer and Gujarat Titans coach, Ashish Nehra feels that both Rohit and Kohli will be a part of the T20 World Cup if they are fit.

Speaking on Jio Cinema, ahead of the 4th T20I match between India and Australia, Nehra said that Rohit and Kohli staying away from South Africa T20Is, was not an indication that they will not play in the World Cup 2024.

“Somebody like Rohit Sharma. Somebody like Virat Kohli. If they are fit, we do not need to discuss their form. Definitely, they will be there in the Caribbean and USA,” Nehra said while speaking on Jio Cinema.

The former India cricketer believed that the injury to Hardik Pandya made things tricky for the selectors going into the series against South Africa. Nehra said that things will get trickier if Pandya is not able to make a comeback in January and only plays the Indian Premier League 2024 ahead of the T20 World Cup 2024.

“I don’t know about captaincy, there is still time. It is a tricky one for the selectors also. Hardik Pandya also got injured and it will be interesting to see when he comes back into the Indian side. If Hardik Pandya plays straight in the IPL, it will be difficult for any selection committee,” concluded Ashish Nehra.
