Former cricketers Lalchand Rajput and Nikhil Chopra shared their thoughts on Kohli’s form in this regard.

He believes that the more games Kohli plays, the better he will develop as a batter. The 60-year-old believes Kohli should play in the South Africa series. Because it will keep him in good form ahead of the England series, where he will face quality seam bowlers.

“I’m not sure what the basis for this rest is, because when you’re not in form, you think about giving the player a rest.” Resting Virat will not benefit him, and he should play. The more he practices, the better he gets. We provide rest because we are tired and have a busy schedule. Will you expose the out-of-form player in England, where you will face bowlers with exceptional ability to swing the ball? “I don’t think he should be rested for this series,” Rajput said on CricTracker’s presents ‘Not Just Cricket’ Show.

Virat Kohli must regain confidence ahead of the England series: Nikhil Chopra

If he takes a break, the team will immediately tour England, where everyone expects difficult conditions. You’ll need some practice runs and confidence before embarking on this tour. It’s entirely up to Virat, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he expresses his willingness to play in the South Africa series,” Chopra said.
