Rohit Sharma slams media, Virat Kohli will be fine if you guys can keep quiet

India’s white-ball captain Rohit Sharma on Tuesday said that Virat Kohli knows how to handle pressure and all will be well if the media stops scrutinizing the former captain’s batting form. Notably, Kohli managed only 26 runs in three ODIs against West Indies earlier this month. Asked how captain and head coach Rahul Dravid will tackle Kohli’s inconsistent form, Rohit said, “I think it will start with you guys (media). If you guys can keep quiet for a while, it will be Virat Kohli. Ok and everything will be handled. He is in a great mental place, and he has been a part of international cricket for over a decade, when someone who has spent such a long time in international cricket knows how to handle pressure situations. I think it all starts with you guys. If you can keep it a little quiet, then everything will be fine…… said Rohit during a virtual press conference. ( rohit support virat)

We have a very busy schedule and injuries are bound to happen, it is important that we give the people who are going to fill those roles. It is important that we use this series and the next series that follow. , for our good potential and see what those who are likely to have can offer us.

We haven’t discussed whether he can play as a pure batsman or not. It’s all about being available. Since the T20 World Cup, we have had injuries. The important thing is to make it available to all, once it is available, we will focus on the second step. The door is open to everyone, we don’t make decisions too quickly, we want to go with the right combination, because in Australia, you will find different situations. You will need different skills there, we want to prepare accordingly and we want to cover all the bases.
