Will Kohli Play In 2024 T20 World Cup Or Not? Chief Selector Ajit Agarkar Gives Huge Update

The T20 World Cup 2024 is scheduled to be played this year in June, jointly hosted by the West Indies and the USA. Before this tournament, the discussion on the future of star Indian batter Virat Kohli is going on.

Ajit Agarkar, the chief selector of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI), has given his opinion on Kohli’s form and fitness, providing a fresh perspective on his chances of being chosen.

The experienced cricketer has been a reliable player for the national team, participating in every ICC tournament since his debut. Nonetheless, recent rumors hinted at the possibility of him being excluded from the 2024 T20 World Cup squad. With the BCCI set to finalize the team soon, Agarkar’s remarks have shed light on Kohli’s status.

Agarkar praised Kohli for his sheer commitment to fitness and said that it has played an important role in Kohli’s career.

While having a conversation with SportifywithPRG podcast, Agarkar said, “Look at Virat. He is one of those guys who has set a benchmark. 10-15 years into his career, he has only gotten fitter. And you can see the results.”

“If someone like him sets an example, puts forward certain things than you need, certain fitness levels you need, gradually it has progressed,” Agarkar added.

“BCCI has been instrumental as well with all the academies that have happened. You learn a lot quicker. Boys today at 15-16 are a lot fitter than they were and should be now with the amount of knowledge, awareness, and facilities available,” Agarkar concluded.
