Rohit Sharma: Rahul or Virat, who will open in T20 World Cup? Captain Rohit Sharma ends all the debate

Mohali: There was a demand for Virat Kohli, who performed brilliantly in the Asia Cup, that he should be opened in T20. However, Team India captain Rohit Sharma has a completely different opinion on this. Captain Rohit said in a press conference ahead of the three-match T20I series against Australia that Kohli is an option to open the innings with him. With this, he made it clear that KL Rahul will be his opening pair in the T20 World Cup. Talking to the media, Rohit said that the team management is clear about the role of all the players.

After the series against Australia, India will host South Africa for a three-match series and then leave for Australia for the T20 World Cup. Rohit said in reference to Kohli’s century in the Asia Cup against Afghanistan earlier this month, “Rahul bhai (head coach Rahul Dravid) and I had a conversation that we should get Virat to open the innings in some matches because he is our third The opener is a batsman. In the last match, we saw what he did as an opener and we are very happy with his performance.

This was Kohli’s first century in international cricket since November 2019 and his overall 71st. Along with calling Kohli the third opener batsman, Rohit made it clear that Rahul will continue to be his opening partner.

He said, ‘KL Rahul will open the innings for us in the T20 World Cup. We’re not going to use this space too much. His performance is often monitored. He is a very important player for India.

The Indian captain said lightly, ‘If you look at his performance in the last two-three years, it has been very good. I want to make it clear to everyone that we have a clear opinion on this and we are well aware of what is cooking outside.

Rahul’s strike rate has been questioned for some time now and now that Kohli is back in form, the discussion has started whether he should open the innings with Rohit.

Rohit said, ‘Our opinion is clear about what Rahul can do for us. He is also a match winner for us. We haven’t hired a third opener and Virat can open the innings for us. He has been doing this for the last several years for his IPL franchise.
