An ex-Indian selector suggests KL Rahul as Rohit Sharma’s opening batsman.
In the shortest format, KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma would bat first, according to former India selector Saba Karim.
KL Rahul will re-join the team in time for the next three-match ODI series against Zimbabwe. The Asia Cup, which starts on August 27 in the United Arab Emirates, will be his toughest test to date. Before testing positive for COVID-19, Rahul missed the series against South Africa and England owing to injury. He was also not there for the West Indies T20I series. The quickest form of the game will be used when Rahul and Rohit Sharma bat first. According to former national selector Saba Karim.
Additionally, he selected Virat Kohli to bat at No. 3, Rishabh Pant to bat at No. 6, Suryakumar Yadav to bat at No. 4, and Hardik Pandya to bat at No. 5.
“KL Rahul, the vice captain, should open for Rohit Sharma, in my opinion. Suryakumar Yadav comes in at number four, while I place Virat Kohli at number three. However, in a T20 format, you seek out guys at positions 4, 5, and 6 who can help you win games and occasionally bat for power. They must also be able to continue innings. According to Karim on SPORTS18’s daily sports news program “SPORTS OVER THE CLOCK,” my predictions for the three batters at positions 4, 5, and 6 are Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, and Rishabh Pant.
You can also rearrange them based on how many overs are still left. However, KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma should bat higher in the order, in my opinion, he continued.
