Wasim Jaffer on Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli

Former Indian cricket team batter Wasim Jaffer believes that both Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli will retire from T20Is after the ongoing T20 World Cup 2024. Although Rohit regained his form in the previous match against Australia with his brilliant knock of 92, Kohli continued to struggle and was dismissed by Josh Hazlewood for a duck.

Jaffer believes this could be the last T20I competition for both Rohit and Virat but insisted they would continue to play in the Indian Premier League (IPL). However, he added that the final decision will rest with them and the selectors.

“I think both of them (Virat and Rohit) will retire from T20Is after the T20 World Cup. Ultimately it is their decision and also that of the selectors. While they will continue to play in the IPL, I believe we will see them for the last time in T20Is at the T20 World Cup,” Jaffer said on his YouTube channel.

However, Jaffer also backed Kohli and said that he will score 100 international centuries. The batsman currently has a total of 80 centuries to his name.

“Yes, I think Virat Kohli will score international hundreds. He still has a lot of time left and given his fitness and the way he is scoring his runs with consistency, I 100 percent expect him to cross 100,” Jaffer added.
