India’s recent victory over Afghanistan in the T20 World Cup Super Eights has brought to light significant concerns surrounding the performances of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. Despite securing a notable 47-run win, the struggles of these key players have sparked discussions about India’s prospects in the tournament, with the reliance on Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya becoming increasingly apparent.

The match exposed Rohit and Kohli’s difficulties in adapting to the pitch conditions, leading to a lack of timing and scoring opportunities. Rohit’s early dismissal after scoring just 8 runs off 13 balls, with minimal boundaries, highlighted his ongoing struggle for form. Similarly, Kohli’s slow-paced innings, accumulating 24 runs off 24 balls before being dismissed, raised concerns about his effectiveness in the T20 format.

Criticism has been directed towards the team management’s decision to open with Kohli, especially considering his recent challenges in T20 cricket. This decision has sidelined promising talents like Yashasvi Jaiswal, adding to the team’s uncertainties.

While Rohit’s role is perceived as less demanding compared to Kohli’s, his inconsistent performances have also contributed to India’s reliance on certain players to rescue the team in crucial moments.

Apart from Rohit and Kohli, other players such as Ravindra Jadeja and Shivam Dube have also faced scrutiny due to their underwhelming performances. Fans have expressed disappointment over the absence of Rinku Singh from the squad, further highlighting concerns about team selection and strategy.
