Sourav Ganguly and Virat Kohli meet for the T20 World Cup, the first match will be with PAK


New Delhi: The entire focus of the Indian team is currently on winning the current Test series in England, but captain Virat Kohli and top officials of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) are also discussing about the upcoming T20 World Cup. .

India will play against Pakistan

A win in the second Test at Lord’s has eased a lot of pressure on Kohli but he knows that his future as captain will largely depend on the team’s performance in the T20 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates where the Indian team will have to take the lead in their campaign. Let’s start against arch-rivals Pakistan.

It is learned that BCCI President Sourav Ganguly, Secretary Jay Shah and Vice President Rajeev Shukla held a formal meeting with the captain during the second Test in which various aspects related to the T20 World Cup were discussed.

Ganguly and Kohli had an important meeting

A senior BCCI official told PTI on condition of anonymity, “Yes, BCCI officials did meet Kohli but it would not be appropriate to give details of the conversation between them.” But there is very little time left in the T20 World Cup and India is not to play any match (limited overs) before IPL (Indian Premier League), so this discussion was largely related to preparing the blueprint for this competition. .

India will play the Test series till September 14 and after that the players will be busy with their respective franchise teams in the IPL. In such a situation, it is not surprising for officials to talk to Kohli.

T20 World Cup will start from October 17

The ICC T20 World Cup will be held in the UAE from October 17. 16 teams will participate in this tournament. Whereas the final match of this tournament will be played on 16 November. Although BCCI has not officially disclosed this. Actually this tournament will start a few days after the IPL final. The IPL final is likely to be held on October 15.
