Former Indian team opener Aakash Chopra believes that Rinku Singh can be the only left-handed batsman in the middle order of the Indian team for the upcoming T20 World Cup 2024. The return of Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma to the T20 format after 14 months has closed the doors for other batsmen. Let us tell you that the Indian team is currently playing a three-match T20 series against Afghanistan.

Aakash Chopra said on his YouTube channel, “I think left-handed players will not be in the World Cup. When you choose your top 6 batsmen, you will get only one left-handed batsman, only one, I am not kidding. If Rohit and Virat Kohli start the innings and Suryakumar Yadav comes at number three.

You don’t have a wicketkeeper in the top-3. If Jitesh does wicketkeeping then he is a right-handed player. If Hardik comes down then he is also a ride hander. Only one left-handed batsman will be able to make a place in the middle order.”

Aakash Chopra made a big claim about Rinku Singh

He further said, “If we look at this time, it will be left-handed player Rinku Singh. You will have one or two more left handed players in your team. “Even after preparing to give opportunities to left-handed players last year, we will not be able to make room for those left-handers.”

Talking about Rinku Singh, he has performed brilliantly in the T20 format so far. He has scored 278 runs in 13 matches at a strike rate of 180. He has scored one half-century. He is an expert in finishing the match. Aakash Chopra said that perhaps all-rounder Ravindra Jadeja could be the second left-handed batsman.

Let us tell you that earlier there was a lot of discussion on the issue whether the selectors will give a chance to young players in the upcoming T-20 World Cup or will they give a chance to experienced players like Virat and Rohit. But looking at the thinking of the team management think tank, it seems that Virat and Rohit can be given a chance in the upcoming T20 World Cup.
