Right before the start of the Asia Cup, there were questions about Virat Kohli’s position on the team. The last 2 years weren’t the best for Kohli as a batsman. There were concerns about his inclusion in the T20 World Cup squad. However, his 122* runs knock against Afghanistan in the recent match has changed the opinions. While KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma are the regular openers, Sunil Gavaskar is confident that Virat Kohli could do the job as well.
KL Rahul’s comeback from the injury hasn’t been what the team expected it to be. With the T20 World Cup right around the corner and Kohli’s numbers in the Asia Cup, there may be a change in the batting order. However, this isn’t the first time he has opened for a team. Kohli has opening experience in IPL and has good numbers too.
