Will Virat Kohli Play 2027 WC?
While Virat Kohli has struggled with his form and there has been a lot of discussion around it. West Indies veteran player, Chris Gayle feels that 2023 World Cup will not be the last one for Virat Kohli.
In interview with Times of India, “Virat Kohli still has another World Cup in him. I don’t think this is going to be his last World Cup”.
He also said, “India are favourites, they play at home as well. So, it’s going to be very interesting. We want to see the team they’re actually going to select. First of all the squad, they’re going to select because a lot of people are knocking on the door as well. India are always going to be a favorite at home as well. So, that’s something that carries the pressure over to the Indian team as well”.
