Doubt it's for 100s i feel he has pressure of loosing captaincy right now. If Kohli goes outside radar then rohit might grab the chance.

I think it's a bit of both. Rohit has been hitting centuries left and right and 'rat has been missing out on easy opportunities. Plus Rohit the captain is getting more praise. So kill two birds with one stone.

Also If Kohli doesn’t go Shreyas will bat at no.3, then you never know what happens if Shreyas clicks. The rest may get longer for Kohli or if Rohit gets captaincy he may ask Virat to bat at 4 if Shreyas clicks.

How was the initial plan made? Did 'rat ask to be rested or was it the selectors' decision that he should be rested to ease his workload? If it was the latter, then the selectors should stick to their decision and tell him he is not going.

Fine to go as long as he is not captaining. He shouldn't captain, Rohit should or someone else. 

No main player should be rested at least for limited over. Why would they want to play meaningless biletral where top order make centuries and than lament in main tournaments that out middle order doesn't perform. Why not give chance to youngsters in such series, it's same thing happening again that after ct17 debacle we went WI and king choker was hitting double hundred  left and right.

I rather have them rest home series, I find home odi series more meaningless where its patta and generally all our players score centuries.

Regardless of whether kohli plays or not, our No 4 slot is wide open.   Perfect opportunity to try Shubman Gill at that slot.  Also, with no dhoni and pandya,  I think the TM should try a hard hitter like Ishan kishan at no 6.

I don't know whether Shubman Gill has the power game that is also necessary for a no 4 batsman.  Don't need any accumulators anymore in the side.  Iyer seems to be far equipped I think.

He is still your best batsman insecure is the last thing that crosses his mind. 

Insecurity is nothing to do with actual ability. Even the most skilled and achieved person can always be insecure while the no skilled person can be full of confidence

What kohli would achieve in playing WI loi series. Does it matter even if we lose  trying youngsters there. A weak opponent is weak home or away. Do you see aus trying there premiere batsmen or bowlers such ruthlessly in biletral series.

Rohit breathing down his neck to claim the post powerful position in side

 

Not only that, if are married to any ambitious person, there are other factors too which dictate how you conduct your business... Kohli might be under peer pressure too to act in a certain way...

 

For example him being suddenly diplomatic, benevolent  (especially to Paks) in recent years displays a strong influence of Bollywood Aman Ki Asha...

Can't rule out, always maintained his better half is pulling his strings all this while
