‘Some are unfortunately sitting out, India need to find ‘best available players’ – Sehwag

While Suryakumar Yadav produced a majestic hundred as he combined belligerence and audacity against England, former skipper Virat Kohli extended his unruly run in world cricket. Kohli perished for just 11 after being caught by Jason Roy at extra cover.

Playing his first shorter format assignment since February, Kohli managed to score just 12 in two games. Amid growing calls for Kohli’s ouster from the Twenty20 squad, former India opener Virender Sehwag shot an ominous warning to the Indian team, asking for the inclusion of players who can fire from the word go.

“India has so many batsman who can get going from the start , some of them are unfortunately sitting out. Need to find a way to play the best available players in current form in T20 cricket. #IndvEng,” tweeted the batting icon.

Kohli, who has gone 77 innings without a hundred in any form of international cricket, is facing his worst batting slump, having scored a ton almost three years ago in 2019.
