Last week, Rohit was handed the reins of the ODI and T20I formats.
“If Rohit and Virat are not playing together then the team will suffer later, they will suffer themselves first. One player will replace the other. No one is indispensable. Many greats have come and gone. Sunil Gavaskar, Kapil Dev, Sachin Tendulkar, Rahul Dravid, Sourav Ganguly, So, if they don’t play under each other’s captaincy, they will be the first to suffer.”
“Rohit is unwell and Kohli is not available for ODIs. Your two best players are not available for any of your series, really serious for India. They have been the mainstay of your Indian batting and the board knows this. Need to figure out where is the problem if instead of its member someone tweets that the side could be cracked. This is not good for the moral of the side and South Africa are a good team especially when you are playing on a good hard track It is completely different from playing in any part of the world. The wickets are different.
Former India captain Mohammad Azharuddin on Tuesday said there is no harm in taking a break but the timing should be better. Azharuddin’s comment came after Kohli asked the Board of Control for Cricket in India.BCCIFor a holiday in January to spend some time with my family. Significantly, Kohli and Anushka Sharma’s daughter Vamika will turn one year old on 11 January 2022.
“I am really surprised by Azhar who is a great player and former India captain who is also a part of BCCI. He is the president of Hyderabad Cricket Association. So, is he saying what BCCI is saying because once He says anything or tweets anything on social media? It is taken as an association or part of BCCI,” Azad said.
“This can lead to a lot of problems within the BCCI and it can lead to nothing. So, such irrelevant type of statements are of no essence to them. I would just call it speculation because if they are saying no then The board should come out,” he added.
