“Why Resting Our Major Players Time And Again?” – Fans Fume As BCCI Rests Virat Kohli And Rohit Sharma For WI ODIs

The Indian selection committee has announced the One Day Internationals (ODI) squad for the West Indies tour. Shikhar Dhawan has been named as the captain of the Indian ODI team for the ODI series against West Indies. Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have been rested for this series against West Indies.

It was shocking for cricket fans when they came to know that Virat and Rohit have been rested for the ODI series because both of them haven’t played much cricket in the last few weeks. Virat has just played one Test match post IPL 2022. While Rohit hasn’t played any game since IPL 2022. 

Fans trolled both Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma for taking more rest than playing matches for the Indian team. Both Virat and Rohit skipped the T20I series against South Africa. They were also not the part of T20I series in Ireland. Fans feel that both of them should be taking the matches of the Indian team seriously.

Here are some of the top Twitter reactions:
