The absence of Virat Kohli can be a disaster for the Indian team, Says, Ricky Ponting
The Indian team is touring Australia and playing in a four-match Test series. Despite this long tour of 3 ODIs and 3 T20s, the Test series is seen as very important. This is because the Indian team won the Test series in 2018 in a historic way. Ricky Ponting says that the absence of Virat Kohli can be a disaster for the Indian team and if the chaos continues it’s difficult to win the match for them.
The Indian team, which won the Test series for the first time on Australian soil after 71 years, will be keen to retain the series this time around. In this situation, Virat Kohli is still the captain.

The problem with the current Test series is that Virat Kohli will return to India as soon as the first Test is over. His first child is about to be born. The BCCI had announced that he would not be playing in the last 3 Tests due to this. The BCCI is currently considering who will replace him.
Former Australia captain Ricky Ponting has spoken out. The absence of Virat Kohli in the 3rd match was a disaster for the Indian team. Without his batting and captaincy, the Indian team would feel the pressure. If it is handed over to Ajinkya Raghane, the captain who will be transferred to the players in the team, the problems for him will be more.
At the same time, you have to choose the right player to play in the 4th place in the batting order. Ricky Ponting has said that if the chaos continues, the team will not be able to field the right team in the first Test.
