Rohit Sharma – Virat Kohli : Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli. The best cricket player of today, not just from India, but from the world. But their luck is such that both of them have won only one ICC title in their cricket career so far. In the year 2007, Rohit Sharma won the T20 World Cup title. Virat Kohli was not in the team at that time. After this, in the year 2011, Virat Kohli won the ODI World Cup, but Rohit Sharma was not in that team. Meanwhile, both the players had four to five opportunities when they could have won another ICC trophy, but their dreams were dashed by falling short.
Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli’s team lost in the ICC title finals thrice.
Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli have lost three finals together. First, New Zealand was defeated in the final of the World Test Championship of 2021 and then Australia was defeated in the final of the World Test Championship of 2023. Both of them were from the final test. After this, the Australian team also defeated in the final of ODI World Cup 2023. That is, if even one of these titles had been won, it would have been like saying that both the big players have won two ICC trophies. But it’s not too late. If everything goes well and nothing goes wrong at the last moment, then there are still at least three chances when Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli can win the ICC title.
Another World Test Championship final will be played in the year 2025
Right now the World Test Championship is going on. This is the third cycle. The final of the World Test Championship will be played in the year 2025. Before this, Team India has reached the final twice. This time too, if we look at the points table, it is at number two. That means here too there is every possibility of going to the finals. It is believed that both these players can at least keep playing Tests in this cycle. Another opportunity will come before this. This will happen during the T20 World Cup. There will be a T20 World Cup in June next year, which will be played in West Indies and America. This is also an opportunity, which is less than a year away. But the question is whether Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli can play T20 International right now. Actually, if we talk about the last one year, both the players remain out of the T20 team, but in the name of rest. What BCCI, Chief Selector of Team India and Rohit and Virat themselves think about all this, will become clear in the coming times.
ICC Champions Trophy will be played in the year 2025
This is the matter of Test and T20 International tournaments. But even though the ODI World Cup comes after four years, there is going to be another ODI tournament. This will be the Champions Trophy. ICC had stopped it after 2017. But once again it has been started. Champions Trophy will be played in the year 2025, this time its hosting has been given to Pakistan. Now whether this big tournament will be held in Pakistan itself or will the venue be changed, also whether Team India will go to play Pakistan is a big question in itself, the answer to which will be given in due time. But it should be almost accepted that the next ODI World Cup is a different matter, but at least Rohit and Virat will keep playing till the Champions Trophy. In such a situation, if India gets even one title, then both of them will have more than one ICC title.
