Kohli Takes a Swipe at Shastri During Interview on His Inclusion in T20 World Cup Squad: Examining His Contribution to Growth of the Game

Virat Kohli took a playful jab at his former coach Ravi Shastri during a recent interview, where he discussed Kohli’s potential inclusion in the upcoming T20 World Cup squad. Kohli, who had just scored an impressive 77-run innings against Punjab Kings and was awarded the player of the match, expressed confidence in his abilities and his role in promoting the game of cricket globally.

During a commentary session for the Gujarat Titans vs Mumbai Indians match, Kevin Pietersen suggested that the T20 World Cup in the USA would benefit from having someone like Kohli to help the game grow as a global sport. In response, Shastri emphasized the importance of focusing on winning the competition rather than solely on growth, citing India’s success in winning the 2007 T20 World Cup with a young team.

Kohli’s performance against Punjab Kings proved to be crucial in guiding RCB to a 4-wicket win in front of a lively Chinnaswamy crowd. With 11 fours and 2 sixes to his name, Kohli’s contribution made a strong case for his inclusion in the Indian squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup in June. Despite being dismissed by Harshal Patel while attempting another big shot, Kohli’s knock showcased his talent and potential contribution to the team.
