4. Preparations for the upcoming World Cup
The way the batting department of India has depended on Kohli for the past few years, it is not a healthy sign for the team for the upcoming World Cup.
In the absence of Kohli, fringe middle order players can showcase their talent and can prove themselves on the big stage.
Moreover the 2019 World Cup will held in England and the home nation is considered as one of the favourites. So a good performance against the home team in their conditions can prove India as a strong contender to lift the World Cup.
