Why isn’t Virat Kohli playing cricket in Asia Cup 2018?
I am quite surprised not to see Virat Kohli not playing cricket in Asia Cup 2018 as it is one of the major tournament. Any tournament is bigger than mere bilateral series. Then why isn’t Virat Kohli playing and captaining the side for India in the tournament. Is he injured or some issues?
Most probably, Virat Kohli asked for rest for Asia Cup 2018. However, any one shouldn’t criticize Virat Kohli for taking rest this Asia Cup and label him arrogant or disrespectful towards country. We need to understand that these days, cricket schedule is very hectic. In fact, it is in the policy of BCCI as well to rotate players. Therefore, the amount of cricket he has played recently, probably he needed rest. Anyways, rest of India is quite good enough to bring trophy home. Another big aspect of him choosing to rest could be the preparation of India for Worldcup. With Virat Kohli taking rest, India can try different players in his place to test the talents and come out with best combination for Cricket World-cup 2019 happening in England.
