Virat Kohli has not hammered a global century since the latter part of 2019, while his performance in the IPL has also been highly irregular.
While calls for him to be dropped have been doing rounds for some time, the selectors have been dual-minded. Also, some call to keep giving chances to Kohli, given his talent.
At the same time, former Indian wicketkeeper-opener Robin Uthappa has called for Kohli to remain on the circuit, given that he is a proven match-winner.
Uthappa feels that Kohli deserves a long break from the sport, given that his slump has continued for far too long. "We have neither the authority nor any ground to question his position or his capacity to win games.
Uthappa was also asked about his assessment regarding pacer Jasprit Bumrah leading Team India in the fifth Test against England last month, which he lost.
"According to me, Bumrah would be a great captain for Test cricket. For ODI, the choices would be KL Rahul or Rishabh Pant," he concluded.
