Why is Virat Kohli not scoring runs? Is he in good “mental space”?This was the poser to Indian captain in white ball cricket, Rohit Sharma, by media persons in a virtual press conference ahead of the T20 engagement against the West Indies on Wednesday.
“If you guys can keep quiet for a while, I think he’ll be alright. We don’t need to do too much talking from your side, then everything will be taken care of. He is in a great mental space from whatever I see of him. He has been part of this international team for more than a decade. If someone has spent that much time in international cricket, they know how to handle the pressure situations, the environment, everything. It all starts from you guys. If you guys can keep it quite for a bit, then everything will fall into place,” Rohit said during a pre-match press-conference on Tuesday.
India face West Indies in a three-match T20I series, starting Wednesday, February 16.
India whitewashed the Windies 3-0 in the ODI series last week and will look stamp their authority in the T20I series.
On Monday, the BCCI announced that Washington Sundar has been ruled out of the T20I series due to a left hamstring muscle strain. Kuldeep will replace him in the squad.
All three T20Is will be played at the Eden Gardens in Kolkata.
