The upcoming South Africa T20 series is very important for the veteran captain of the Indian cricket team, Virat Kohli because one such player has been given a chance in that series. Due to whose bat, Virat Kohli’s career may end and he may be out of T20 World Cup 2024. That is why many Virat fans are still praying that no matter what happens, runs should not come from that player’s bat.
So let us know who is that player whose failure to play will determine Virat’s participation in the T20 World Cup 2024.
Virat Kohli may miss T20 World Cup 2024:
Virat Kohli played his last T20 match against England during the T20 World Cup 2022. The Indian team had to face defeat, after which he was dropped from the team. In such a situation, it is looking very difficult for him to play in the T20 World Cup 2024.
Also, the management has started giving frequent opportunities to his replacement, for which the last stop is the South Africa series. If he plays well there, then Virat Kohli is sure to be out of the T20 team forever. That player is none other than Ruturaj Gaikwad.
Ruturaj Gaikwad will end Virat’s career:
Let us tell you that Ruturaj Gaikwad has a very good record in T20 cricket and his recent form is also very strong. Because of this many experts are speculating that he could be the next Virat Kohli. He has recently strengthened his claim by scoring a century against Australia. In such a situation, if his bat performs well during the South Africa tour, he will cement his place in the team forever. After which Virat may have to go out. However, it is too early to say anything in this matter as there is still a lot of time left for the T20 World Cup.
T20 record of Ruturaj Gaikwad:
Ruturaj Gaikwad has played a total of 18 T20 matches so far, in which he has scored a total of 490 runs in 16 innings with an average of 37.69 and a strike rate of 142.02.
