The former India captain missed the entire England Test series for personal reasons before making an incredible return at the home of the Royal Challengers Bangalore.

When the was speaking with Shastri during Sunday’s thrilling game between the Mumbai Indians and Gujarat Titans (GT) at the Narendra Modi Stadium, Pietersen offered Kohli an honorable mention. Pietersen contended that as the representative of the sport in the United States for the T20 World Cup, Kohli is essential.

“The United States is hosting the World Cup. Pakistan and India are playing in New York. Pietersen stated, “You’d want someone like a Virat Kohli to help the game grow.”

Co-commentator Shastri responded in a notable way by mentioning MS Dhoni and reminding Pietersen that India won the renowned trophy back in 2007 when they had a youthful team. “The goal is to win the competition, not to expand the game.”

Wherever it needs to grow, the game will grow. My point is that there should be no baggage. Additionally, India’s youthful team won the 2007 T20 World Cup. You desire youth. You’re looking for flair. You’re looking for that dash,” Shastri said.
