Virat Kohli is unable to score a century
Despite two and a half years of poor form, Virat still holds one of the best career records in world cricket. But cricket is not played on the basis of past records and current form plays an integral role in the career of any player. The decision to rest Kohli can be very difficult.
Many big players have been out
In the past, many legendary cricketers like Sourav Ganguly, Virender Sehwag, Gautam Gambhir, Yuvraj Singh and others have been dropped on the basis of their poor form. Cheteshwar Pujara and Ajinkya Rahane were dropped from the Test team a few months back. Although Pujara made a comeback in county cricket with runs, Rahane is still out.
Many youngsters are constantly knocking on the door of Team India with impressive performances in domestic cricket and they can get a chance only if someone makes a place for them. However, only time will tell whether the selectors or the team management will take a bold decision to drop Kohli.
