Virat Kohli

Former cricketer Kris Srikkanth shared that Virat Kohli is in great shape and might play the 2026 World Cup, however, Rohit Sharma’s chances are doubtful.

Former Indian opener Kris Srikkanth has weighed in on the possibility of the ongoing T20 World Cup being the last for senior players Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma.

Srikkanth, on his YouTube channel, believes Kohli’s fitness allows him to potentially play in the 2026 edition held in India. “As far as I am concerned, the kind of fitness Virat Kohli has, he can easily play until 2026. So 2026 could be Virat’s last. For Virat Kohli, this is not the last chance (to win a T20 World Cup),” Srikkanth said, as quoted by Sportskeeda.

Kohli, the tournament’s all-time leading run-scorer, has yet to win a T20 World Cup title despite being Player of the Tournament in both 2014 and 2016 editions, where India fell short of glory.

Srikkanth acknowledged this might be the last chance for Kohli and Rohit to win the trophy together as a team. He also believes Rohit, who missed out on the ODI World Cup title last year, will be highly motivated.

“Rohit Sharma has won it in 2007 (as a player). He wanted the ODI World Cup very badly, but he missed it. He will now be looking at the T20 World Cup, thinking he should win it for India as a captain. As a captain, winning the World Cup is a big thing,” Srikkanth added.

Rohit has captained India in three ICC tournaments – the 2022 T20 World Cup, the World Test Championship (WTC), and the 2023 ODI World Cup, unfortunately, he is yet to secure a title.
