Joe Root Gave a Big Statement on Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli age

Joe Root has given a big statement on the age of Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli.

Before the ODI World Cup 2023, Indian team captain Rohit Sharma and star batsman Virat Kohli are in excellent form. Currently, both these batsmen are playing the Asia Cup, where both are working to strengthen the team by playing explosive innings for the team. Virat Kohli recently played an unbeaten century of 122 runs against Pakistan.

Captain Rohit played an important inning of 53 runs against Sri Lanka and made an important contribution in taking India to the final of the Asia Cup. For some time now, there has been discussion about the increasing age of both the players. It is being said that young players should now get more opportunities. In this episode, before the T20 World Cup, England star Joe Root was asked about this and what was his answer, let us know through this article.

What did Joe Root say on the increasing age of Kohli and Rohit?

England batsman Joe Root said in an interview to Times of India that it is very dangerous to ignore Rohit-Kohli from the team on the basis of age. Root further said that when both the players are completely fit then they should be retained in the Indian team.

I think it is very dangerous to drop Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma because of their age. You can see how long Chris Gayle played in T-20 cricket. Apart from them, there are many best players who have played in T-20 for a long time and have performed brilliantly and led the team to an important victory. You should play as long as you are fit.

Along with this, Joe Root said that James Anderson is a perfect example. He is 40 years old and even at this age he is performing brilliantly. We consider ourselves very lucky that we did not drop him from the team due to his advancing age. He has no lack of experience.
