CricketI can't beleive Kohli's place in Team is under threat: Scott Styris reaction to Manjrekar's remark

Srinagar: Former New Zealand all-rounder Scott Styris has questioned the remark made by former India Cricketer Sanjay Manjrekar opining that Virat Kohli’s place in Team India is under threat from youngsters.

Sanjay Manjrekar on Tuesday made remark during a show that Kohli is well aware now that he is no longer irreplaceable.

Soon after Manjrekar made remark , Styris intervened and said that he cant believe that Kohli’s place is under threat.

“I can’t believe that Kohli’s place in the team is under threat. I still can’t believe that. As good as Hooda and the likes of Ishan Kishan and the players at the top top who could come in over the next year. Are we really talking about Kohli not making this team?” Styris questioned.

Speaking on Star Sports ahead of the start of the third Asia Cup 2022 game between Bangladesh and Afghanistan in Sharjah, Manjrekar opined on Kohli’s place in the Indian team based on the sides new T20I batting template.

“There are two ways to look at it. Virat Kohli has already embraced this new approach which is slightly contrary to his nature because he likes to take some time in the middle and then get going by this new approach does not allow him that comfort to take time. The other thing is that he has nothing to lose. He is playing as per the team’s plans so he can go out there are express himself as per the team say. But how many ever runs he gets against Hong Kong when you are again playing against a team like Pakistan it is back to square one,” he said

“The other thing that will make things difficulty for Kohli is that he knows there are some young players with some serious form behind them who are pushing for a place in the playing XI. Deepak Hooda got a hundred recently. There is Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer as well. He is aware of all this so it isn’t easy. But the fighter that he is, he will make it count,” he explained.
