Virat Kohli took a playful jab at his former coach Ravi Shastri and his recent remarks regarding Kohli’s potential inclusion in the upcoming T20 World Cup squad. In an interview, Kohli expressed his confidence in his abilities and his role in promoting the game of cricket globally.

During a recent commentary session for Gujarat Titans’ Mumbai Indians match, Kevin Pietersen suggested that the T20 World Cup in the US would benefit from someone like Kohli helping to grow the sport as a global phenomenon. In response, Shastri emphasized the importance of winning the competition first before focusing on growth. He cited India’s success in the 2007 T20 World Cup as proof that they can win without prioritizing growth.

Kohli’s innings against Punjab Kings was crucial in leading RCB to a 4-wicket victory in front of a packed Chinnaswamy crowd. With 11 fours and two sixes under his belt, Kohli’s performance was a strong argument for why he should be included on the Indian squad for the upcoming T20 World Cup in June. Despite being dismissed by Harshal Patel while attempting another big shot, Kohli showcased his talent and potential to contribute to the team’s success.
