Virat Kohli holds highest average among Indian players in the t20I format ahead of 2024 t20I world cup

Virat Kohli has, so far, played 117 t20I matches since 2010, remaining not out 31 times. He has scored 4037 runs, highest among all the active Indian cricketers with a highest score of 122 runs.

Virat Kohli doesn’t seem to be in the plans of selectors for the upcoming T20I World Cup 2024 in West Indies, but the legendary cricketer averages 51.75, the highest among all active Indian players in the T20I format. The star batsman is on the verge of being dropped as the BCCI is looking to give chances to other players whose playing style suits the pitches in West Indies.

Recent reports suggest that the star batsman will most likely lose his spot to a youngster, preferably Ishan Kishan, Rinku Singh, Shubman Gill, or Ruturaj Gaikwad. However, fans seem to have made up their minds about watching the Indian team without the services of Virat Kohli. Kohli has, so far, played 117 T20I matches since 2010, remaining not out 31 times. He has scored 4037 runs, the highest among all active Indian cricketers, with a highest score of 122 runs. The batsman also carries an impressive strike rate of 138.15. Although he has scored just one hundred in the T20I format, he has notched up 37 fifties so far.

Although official reports aren’t out yet, Virat Kohli still has a chance of making it to the team. Kohli will be expected to perform in the upcoming IPL 2024, leaving no room for poor form. Fans will be hoping that the star batsman’s performance can change the perception of the selectors who seem to have made up their minds to exclude him from the format.

In 2016, Virat Kohli scored 5 centuries in the IPL, which is considered the most number of centuries scored by an Indian batter in the IPL. He will be playing in the 16th edition of IPL 2024, with an impressive tally of 7 centuries so far. It will be interesting to see how Kohli responds to the reports of him getting dropped, but fans are already anticipating that the batsman will overturn the decision of the selectors to find alternatives for Virat.
