Asia Cup 2018: India Will Miss Virat Kohli the Batsman – Gautam Gambhir
Meanwhile, the selectors have decided the rest Kohli for the six-nation tournament. Kohli has been playing continuous cricket, and the selectors have decided to manage his workload.
However, Gautam Gambhir believes India will not Virat Kohli as the leader of the team. He feels Rohit Sharma fine enough to lead the defending champions.
“If you ask me about the captaincy factor, I don’t see Kohli’s absence will affect India. Rohit Sharma is fine enough to lead,” Gambhir said on Wah Cricket.
At the same time, he asserted that the team members have to take the responsibility if they aim at lifting the trophy.
“A captain doesn’t win you matches, a team does. You still need 10 other players to win the match. If the bowlers take wickets, batsmen score and fielders hold onto their catches then I don’t think there should be any problem for India in the Asia Cup,” Gautam Gambhir added.
India, meanwhile, will start their campaign against Hong Kong on September 18. Furthermore, they will square off against arch-rival Pakistan the very next day on September 19.
Interestingly, there is a high possibility that India might end up facing three times in the Asia Cup if both make it to the final of Asia Cup on September 28.
