Kohli likely to be rested for SL T20I

PTI, MUMBAI: India skipper Virat Kohli and pacers Bhuvneshwar Kumar and Jasprit Bumrah's workload is expected to be a topic of discussion when the national selection committee headed by MSK Prasad meets this weekend to decide on the Indian squad for the Tri-Nation T20 meet in Sri Lanka next month, from March 6-18.

Kohli has played all the matches in South Africa so far but his case will be slightly different from others as a decision on resting him will depend on the skipper himself.

“If Virat wants rest, he will get it. In Virat's case, it's he who decides on whether he would like to opt out or not. But you never know he might just want to play the T20 series as this is the last tourney of the season.

“Once the tournament is over, he will get a fortnight off before the Indian Premier League,” a top BCCI official told PTI on conditions of anonymity.

Chairman of selectors Prasad however refused to comment on the issue. But it is understood that fast bowling unit's composition will be a topic of discussion as and when the selection meeting is held.

Bhuvneshwar and Bumrah, who have been India's star performers across formats, are likely to get a much-needed rest ahead of the long season that starts with the IPL.

Bhuvneshwar has bowled around 100 overs including the Test, ODI and T20I series. The story has been the same for Bumrah, who has played in all the matches expect that last T20I on the tour so far.

With India set to play 63 international games including 30 ODIs in the coming season, a fit Bumrah is a priority for both the selectors and the team management.
