Former England captain Kevin Pietersen feels that Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli should be allowed to decide their fate in the ICC T20 World Cup 2024. Kevin Pietersen also added that selectors should check their form during IPL 2024.

Rohit Sharma has reached 36 while Virat Kohli has turned 35 years. They have also not played any T20I games since the ICC World Cup 2022 loss to England in the semi-final. Hence, there is uncertainty over their selection in the forthcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2024.

Because they have been so incredible servants to Indian cricket, you have to give them the respect and you have to ask them that according to form whether they fancy their chances or not. They are fabulous cricketers,” Pietersen said.

Kevin Pietersen also added that the form of players in IPL 2024 will follow in T20I World Cup too as both tournaments will be played back-to-back.
