Immense experience in ICC tournaments

Both Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma have unparalleled experience in ICC tournaments. Although the team did not win during their captaincy, both players performed well individually. Rohit emerged as the leading run-scorer in the 2019 ODI World Cup and Kohli repeated the feat in the 2023 World Cup. His experience can be invaluable in helping Team India achieve success in limited overs cricket.

In-form display

Kohli and Rohit are in great form at the moment and are performing consistently. Last year, Kohli topped the run charts with 1377 runs, with Rohit second with 1255 runs. Their impressive strike rate and hunger for runs make them strong contenders to contribute significantly to India's success in the T20 World Cup 2024. Their recent form suggests that they can maintain this momentum in the tournament.

Desire to leave white-ball cricket with a trophy

Both players are at that stage of their career where winning the ICC trophy means a lot. With the 2027 ODI World Cup likely to be a daunting prospect for them, the T20 World Cup 2024 provides a golden opportunity for Kohli and Rohit to bid farewell to white-ball cricket on a high level. Winning the T20 World Cup would be a fitting culmination to their illustrious white-ball cricket career.

Former Indian fast bowler Irfan Pathan has also expressed his opinion that considering the situation in West Indies and America, it would be a strategic step for Team India to include Virat and Rohit in the T20 World Cup 2024 team.
