India’s squad for ICC Men’s T20 World Cup has been announced and the 15-member squad has four specialist batters in Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, Virat Kohli, and Suryakumar Yadav. There were signs of worries for India as one of these specialist batters, Virat Kohli was going through a tough time in his career. The 33-year-old had not scored an international century for almost three years. 

Runs had stopped coming for Kohli no matter how hard he tried. But came the Asia Cup 2022 and everything changed. Kohli looked in a good rhythm right from the first game he played. The star batter did not look back from there and went on to finish the tournament as the second-highest run-getter (276 runs @ 92). He also ended his century drought as he scored an unbeaten 122 against Afghanistan to bring up his 71st international ton. 

Now as Kohli is back, people have started to believe that the 33-year-old can be the game changer for India in the T20 World Cup. Former India pacer S Sreesanth also thinks that Kohli can be that X-factor for the Men in Blue in Australia. The former India cricketer also imposed faith in India to lift the coveted title after 15 years. 

When asked who can be the game changer for India, Sreesanth said: "I think Virat. The way he is performing, I think Virat is back which is great. And in Australian conditions, on hard and bouncy wickets, I think Virat and Rohit will surely do good.”

“If India focus well, then surely it will happen. The same thing happened in 2007. We lost the ODI World Cup but went on to win the T20 World Cup. The motivation when you lose something combined with focus yields results. So, if we focus really hard, we can win the T20 World Cup this time around,” said Sreesanth about India’s chances.
