Salman Butt thinks the focus should be on the 2023 World Cup because that will determine who remains in contention for the 2024 T20 World Cup amid the ongoing discussion about senior Indian players Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma’s future in T20 Internationals.
In India’s lineup for the ODI series against Bangladesh, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli are the two most notable returning players. On Sunday, December 4, the first game will occur.

Speaking on his YouTube channel, the former Pakistan captain said: “Why are we discussing the 2024 T20 World Cup? We should focus on the 2023 World Cup, where they will play. Depending on the result, everything will change as someone’s cricket could end or get extended.”

It’s important to note that Kohli finished with 296 runs in six innings to win the T20 World Cup in Australia. In contrast, Rohit Sharma only amassed 116 runs in six games, and his lone fifty came against the lower-ranked Netherlands.

The upcoming Bangladesh tour will see the return of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma:

The forthcoming Bangladesh tour will see the comeback of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma, who will play three one-day internationals and two tests. After the T20 World Cup, the pair received a break before the white-ball series in New Zealand.

Kohli will be eager to extend his winning streak. In 15 ODI innings to date in Bangladesh, he has amassed 970 runs, including five hundred and three fifty-plus scores.

In the meantime, Rohit needs to perform better in the series as India hosts the 2023 World Cup. In ODIs in Bangladesh, he has scored 331 runs in 12 innings for an average of 30.09.

On Sunday in Mirpur, Rohit Sharma and company will face Bangladesh in action. At the same location, the final two ODIs will take place on December 7 and December 10.
