Previously the player was put on rest during the ODI and T20I fixture against the West Indies where the decision was due to the lean patch then.
The player was on a break for almost a month and wasn’t on the grounds during the period even for practice. However, the case is not the same this time as the player seems to be joining the first fixture of the T20 World Cup 2022.
Currently, there are speculations that Shreyas Iyer will be taking up the spot of Kohli in the future game against South Africa.
Kohli has been playing the matches back to back and there has been a lot of workload to his name where the authorities will have to be a little careful of his load.
There is news that the player has been put on rest considering the workload and the authorities want the player to be in a fresh mood mentally and physically for the T20 World Cup.
It is one of the better decisions for the player to bounce back in the World Cup with great enthusiasm.
