The Men’s team will begin their last international assignment before the World Cup tomorrow. In the five-match ODI series against Australia, the team management and the selectors will be looking to have a crystal clear picture of what their squad will look like for the World Cup.
“We need to have a solid team”
Earlier in the day, speaking to the reporters during the pre-series press conference, Kohli opened up on performances in the Indian Premier League not having an affect on the selections in the World Cup squad.
“No, I don’t see the IPL having any influence on World Cup selection. I think that will be very, very radical sort of analysis,” Kohli was quoted as saying.
“We need to have a solid team. Before we head into the IPL, we need to be absolutely clear of what team we want for the World Cup. I don’t see anything changing on how the IPL goes for any of the players.
“If one or two players do not have a good IPL season, it doesn’t mean that they are out of the picture for the World Cup. Those things are not going to matter,” Kohli said.
