Zimbabwe India tour: BCCI extends holiday for Virat Kohli, out of shape India star RESTED AGAIN for Zimbabwe ODIs – Check out

Virat Kohli rested again: Virat Kohli was once again absent from the Indian squad as the selection committee named a second squad for the Zimbabwe tour. Kohli, who is currently on holiday in Europe, has been sidelined as he continues his break from scorching form. The 33-year-old enjoyed a forgettable streak against England without scoring more than 20 points in either format, putting his place in the squad under streak doubt.

After resting for the series against the West Indies, the series in Zimbabwe could have been the perfect opportunity for the Indian talisman to get some points below the belt. While a break will certainly be refreshing for the former India skipper, his form has been questionable, adding to India’s woes ahead of the T20 World Cup and Asian Cup 2022.

Although Kohli failed to perform in both games against England, his game best suits the ODI format and could rekindle his form. Zimbabwe could have been his best resort. Zimbabwe’s bowling attack is not world class and the shot Kohli is looking for could come. Even an out-of-form Sourav Ganguly circled Zimbabwe and got a century, but the 33-year-old continued to spend time with his young family across Europe.

Kohli spent some time in London after the English series before taking a short trip to Paris. The former India captain will travel to the United Arab Emirates to compete in the upcoming Asian Cup.

India squad vs Zimbabwe: Shikhar Dhawan (Capt), Ruturaj Gaikwad, Shubman Gill, Deepak Hooda, Rahul Tripathi, Ishan Kishan (wk), Sanju Samson (wk), Washington Sundar, Shardul Thakur, Kuldeep Yadav, Axar Patel, Avesh Khan, Prasidh Krishna, Mohd Siraj, Deepak Chahar.
