Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli’s participation in the upcoming T20 World Cup is one of the hottest topics in the cricketing world at the moment. There are reports that Rohit Sharma will be leading the team in the marquee tournament but BCCI secretary Jay Shah recently stated that the officials are in no hurry to decide anything now, which further complicated the issue. When it comes to Virat Kohli, there’s a lot of doubt regarding his future in the shortest format of the game.

Meanwhile, former cricketer Gautam Gambhir believes that if these two cricketers are in form, they should definitely travel to West Indies and the United States of America for the tournament. He explained that it all depends on their form and believes that the upcoming edition of the IPL will be important for the duo.

“See, it all depends on the form. Ultimately, it’s the form. The good thing is it’s happening after the IPL. 100 percent. They should be part of the World Cup if they are in good form. For me, form is important. For a T20 World Cup, you want to take players who are in really good form. If Rohit and Virat are in good form, they should absolutely be picked for the World Cup,” Gambhir was quoted as saying by Cricket Times.

One bad game doesn’t make Rohit Sharma or this team a bad team: Gambhir

Despite losing in the finals of the recently concluded ODI World Cup, Rohit Sharma and his team received huge praise from the cricketing world across the world. Mostly so, because of the brand of cricket they have played throughout the course of the tournament. Gambhir reminded the same and reminded that one bad game doesn’t make Rohit a bad captain as he has had enormous success in the IPL.

“Rohit has done a very, very good job. It’s not easy to win 5 IPL trophies. And then the way India dominated in the last 50-over World Cup… One bad game doesn’t make Rohit Sharma or this team a bad team and the way they dominated… I can still understand if you win tight games, the way they played… it’s not fair to say Rohit is a bad captain after just one bad game,” Gambhir said.
