Virat Kohli Likely To Open The Innings With Rohit Sharma In T20 World Cup

To inflict maximum damage to the rival teams during the T20 World Cup, aggressive India skipper Virat Kohli is planning to open with flamboyant Rohit Sharma in the ICC tournament, scheduled to be held in the country later this year.

Solid Middle Order Allows Virat Kohli To Open The Match With Rohit Sharma

Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma added 94-run for the first wicket in quick time as India posted a massive 224 for 2 and won the match by 36 runs. “I am going to open in IPL as well. I have batted in different positions in the past. But I feel we have a solid middle-order now. So, I will definitely like to partner Rohit at the top going into the T20 World Cup,” Kohli said at the post-match presentation.

“Two best batsmen in the team, one can play second fiddle if the other gets going. That can inflict a lot of damage to the opposition team. Other guys also feel a lot more confident when one of us is still in and is set.”

Before the series, Kohli had said that Rohit and Rahul were India’s first-choice opening pair. India replaced an out-of-form Rahul with pacer T Natarajan for the crucial game.

Talking about the partnership with Rohit which set laid the foundation of a big total, Kohli said, “Today Rohit and I were both positive in our intent. We knew we could trust each other and one of us can play second fiddle if one takes off.”

“KL has been one of our key players in limited-overs, especially in this format. Looking at the current form, the team management decided to go with the best 11. Having said that, it doesn’t send any signal that KL will not be considered or anything like that. This was just for one particular game. Things might change as we got closer to the World Cup.”

This is no T20 matches for India now until the world cup but all the players will be watched closely during the IPL. The amount of players options India have is humongous and it’ll be Virat Kohli and the coaches who decided to choose the best XI.
