Will Virat Kohli play in T20 World Cup 2024; BCCI to select Indian squad in last week of April – Report

Royal Challengers Bengaluru suffered their second defeat in only the third game of the IPL 2024. They lost to Kolkata Knight Riders, and it was the first defeat for a home team in the ongoing tournament. Virat Kohli scored an unbeaten 83 off 59 balls, where he hit four boundaries and four sixes at a strike rate of 140.63. RCB only managed 182/6, and KKR chased it down in 16.5 overs.

Many fans said that Virat Kohli’s slow innings were one of the main reasons that RCB managed a below-par score, which became the reason for the defeat. Well, it has certainly raised questions about whether Virat is capable of matching the current needs of the T20 format. As we saw in SRH vs MI game, more than 500 runs were scored and 39 sixes were hit.

IPL 2024: Will Virat Kohli play in the T20 WC 2024? Selectors will finalize the squad in the last week of April

As per some of the latest media reports, there is news circulating at the moment. It suggests that the Indian selection committee led by Ajit Agarkar might finalise India’s squad for the upcoming ICC T20 WC 2024 within the last week of April. All four members of the selection committee are closely monitoring the performance in the IPL 2024 and will make a decision. However, if we look at the current tournament, Virat Kohli is the highest run scorer.

He has scored 181 runs in three innings at 90.50. But his strike rate of 141.41 has been a question mark. So we will make a place where India has the option for players like Yashasvi Jaiswal or Shubman Gill to choose from at No. 3. According to a report by PTI, the BCCI will select the squad after the half-way mark of the IPL 2024. The last date to submit teams for the T20 World Cup 2024 given by the ICC is May 1.

The ICC tournament will take place in June in West Indies and USA with a total of 20 teams. According to the report, the teams that will not qualify for the IPL playoffs and the players who are selected for the T20 World Cup will leave for USA. A official from BCCI confirmed PTI, “The Indian squad will be selected during the last week of April. By the time, the first half of the IPL will be over, and the selection board will be in a position to assess the fitness and form of the players. The first batch of players will leave for New York immediately after the end of the league stage of the IPL on May 19.”
