Rahul Dravid and Virat Kohli

Virat Kohli has not played for India in T20Is since the T20 World Cup 2022, despite the fact that the team has played two T20I bilateral series since the mega event. Kohli scored the most runs in the T20 World Cup 2022, totalling 296 in six matches. In four of those games, he scored half-centuries. His continuous absence from the T20I squad has cast doubt on his future in the format. The subject was addressed again during India’s pre-match news conference ahead of the third ODI against New Zealand. Rahul Dravid, India’s head coach, was present at the press conference.

Watch Rahul Dravid’s reply here:

Till last year, Virat’s position in the T20I team was in question, asked a journalist, when Dravid interrupted him midway and said, “Not by us sir. No Not at all, never by us!”

On being questioned, why Kohli wasn’t playing in the T20Is, despite being picked in ICC’s T20I squad of the year (2022), Dravid said that there were certain priority the team needed to give to different white-ball events at particular times. The amount of cricket India plays, the Border-Gavaskar Trophy and the World Test Championship, prospective qualification, key games for team India in terms of qualification. Certain white-ball competitions have to be prioritised; the focus after the T20 World Cup was these six games, Dravid said.

The senior coach of Indian cricket team also said that as you can see, Virat has participated in all six games. He’ll get a rest in the following week, along with Rohit and one or two other guys, while the team plays some T20I cricket. And they return reinvigorated on the second, and we have a good week of training before we play Australia. So it’s all about priorities. Certain formats must be prioritised.

On Tuesday, India will play the final ODI of a three-match series against New Zealand. The team coached by Rohit Sharma has already taken an insurmountable 2-0 lead in the series.

IPL 2023 playoffs scenario: What LSG’s win over MI means for RCB,CSK and others

If LSG wins their last league game ,they will have 17 points ,which will be enough to advance .It would get complicated if they lost since five other teams ,including the Gujarat Titans ,Chennai Super Kings ,Mumbai Indians, Royal challengers Bangalore, and Punjab Kings ,might each have at least 16 points



IPL 2023 playoffs scenario: What LSG’s win over MI means for RCB,CSK and others

The Lucknow Super Giants (LSG) by beating five time champions Mumbai Indians (MI), have significantly boosted their chances of the making the playoffs in this year’s edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL).

As many as seven other teams are still competing for the remaining three spots with the defending champion Gujarat Titans being the only team to have already clinched their place in the playoffs. If MI had defeated LSG, they would have almost certainly advanced to the next round, but skipper Krunal Pandya’s team’s victory has complicated the playoff situation even further.

Here’s how the scenario is likely to play out

Lucknow Super Giants : If LSG wins their last league game, they will have 17 points which will be enough to advance to the playoffs but if they lose, things would become complicated since five other teams ,including the Gujarat Titans ,Chennai Super Kings ,Mumbai Indians, Royal challengers Bangalore, and Punjab Kings each have at least 16 points.

They can also qualify with 15 points ,but for that to happen ,at least two other competitors must not finish with 16 points or higher.

Mumbai Indians: With 14 points, MI needs to win their final game to improve their chances of making the playoffs. Punjab Kings, LSG , Chennai Super Kings ,and Royal Challengers Bangalore can all have 16 points or more. Net run rate will be relevant in this situation. Things could become even more difficult if Mumbai loses their final game since five teams could conceivably find themselves tied for the final playoff berth with 14 points

Chennai Super Kings : With 15 points ,CSK would be eligible for the playoffs with a victory over Delhi Capitals in their upcoming match. However, a loss puts them in a difficult situation because five teams might end the league stage with 16 points or more. With a win over DC, CSK might even place among the top two teams.

Bangalore Royal Challengers: Thanks to their most recent victory over Rajasthan Royals ,RCB has a strong net Run Rate of 0.166.With Victories in their last two games, RCB can also guarantee a post season position. But even a single set back could endanger their position.

Punjab Kings: The team captained by Shikhar Dhawan has a problem with their Net Run Rate of -0.268.Winning both of the upcoming matches is almost required if Punjab Kings want to complete the league portion of the season among the top 4 teams. Due to the low NRR, they could be eliminated with just one loss. They will undoubtedly benefit from big victories in the upcoming two games.

Rajasthan Royals: One of the season’s most promising teams ,Rajasthan Royals had their entire campaign derailed after they suffered a humbling loss to Royal Challengers Bangalore the previous time. They must also hope that certain other outcomes go in their favour in addition to winning their last game by a wide margin.

Kolkata Knight Riders :With only 12 points and a NRR of 0.256, KKR’s chances of making the playoffs are in jeopardy. They must not only defeat the Lucknow Super Giants by a wide margin, but they must also anticipate the defeat of other contenders by similar wide majorities. Therefore a number of outcomes must line up for them to qualify.
