    T20 World Cup 2021: Will Kohli open with Rohit?

    New Delhi. The BCCI has announced a 15-member squad for next month’s Twenty20 World Cup in the United Arab Emirates and Oman. A lot of big players were dropped from this team, so a lot of startling names were also entered. The team has 6 expert batsmen. Among them are captain Virat Kohli, co-captain Rohit Sharma, Suryakumar Yadav, KL Rahul, Habshav Pant and Han Shan Kisan. Rohit Sharma has been named as the opener. But who will be his partner? Will KL Rahul play this role in T20 World Cup or will Virat Kohli be seen in this role? Because the Indian captain has expressed his desire to open the innings. However, chief selector Chetan Sharma has a slightly different view on the matter.

    After announcing Team India for the T20 World Cup, when the chief selector was asked about the opening pair, he made it clear that Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul would open the innings. This will be Team India’s main opening pair.

    At the same time, when asked about the opening of captain Kohli, he said that all selectors believe that the huge middle order is a key part of the team’s batting. The most important batsman in a huge team. When he plays in the middle order, the whole team surrounds him. However, if time is needed and the team management thinks that Virat needs to open up, then this decision is for him. But for now we have three openers – Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Han Shan Kisan.

    Virat expressed his desire to play in T20
    Virat Kohli will play for Royal Challengers Bangalore in the home Twenty20 series against England this year and in the first round of IPL 2021. He scored 198 runs in 7 matches of IPL 2021. At the same time, in the last match of the 5 T20 series against England, he played an unbeaten innings of 80 runs and opened the innings with Rohit. After that he expressed his desire to open in the future too. However, the selectors are not ready for this and they are looking at Kishan as the third opener.

    As an opener, Virat scored 278 runs in 8 Twenty20s
    Virat has so far scored 3159 runs at an average of over 525 in T20I T20s. He has scored 278 runs in 8 T20s. Runs0’s unbeaten innings was his best performance, which he played against England in March this year.

    ODI Shane made fifty runs in his ODI and T20 debut
    Shane made his international debut this year against England. He scored half-centuries in both his first T20 and ODI. He had a fifty at the time of his T20 debut when he opened. He achieved this feat while playing number one in ODIs. This is why when selecting the team for the T20 World Cup, he was selected as the third opener without a back-up wicketkeeper.

    Open Shane is included in the team as the third opener
    The chief selector himself said about Kisan’s selection that he could fit in the middle order as well as open the innings. The combination of left and right hand is especially important when opening the innings. If the opposing team has a leg-spinner, then an aggressive left-handed batsman like him can come in handy for the team. If we need an opener, Isha Shan can do it. Because he made a half century during his debut in T20. At the same time, he can also play spin bowling well in the middle order.
