Bright Times News: After England, Team India will tour the Caribbean. In this tour, they will play the T20 and ODI series. Therefore, the Indian cricket team was also announced on Thursday. Former Indian cricket team captain Virat Kohli has been rested for this series. A lot of speculation had already started about the matter. Now when the team management took this decision, various reactions started coming forward.
As soon as the Indian cricket team was announced, it became the talk of the town on social media. ‘Dropped’ tops trending on Twitter in no time. Currently, Virat Kohli is going through a bad form. He also suffered a minor injury during the recent tour of England. In this situation, fans started speculating that Virat Kohli was not rested, but dropped from the team.
After Virat Kohli rested, various funny memes started being shared on social media. Many have started to say that why is it called rest or injury? Virat should retire immediately.
Some have also started raising questions about Virat Kohli’s rest. According to them, it is not the rest but he has been cut from the team. Because the more opportunities Virat is given, the more he can return to form. Such varied responses were observed.
The last point of hope, like the last flame of the lamp, was the T20 series against England. But, even there, he continued to fail in one match after another. Most importantly, he has not scored century at-bats in the last two and a half years. In this situation, neither Kapil Dev, the 1983 World Cup-winning captain, nor Virender Sehwag, the former devastating opener of the Indian cricket team, demanded that Virat be dropped from Team India.
