Virat Kohli should open with Rohit Sharma from now on – Aakash Chopra


Meanwhile, analyzing his return to T20I cricket, former cricketer Aakash Chopra said that Kohli should partner Rohit Sharma at the top of the order. He believes that Virat has a great template and it takes some time for him to settle down. In such a situation, he advised that if Kohli bats in the powerplay, he will get a good opportunity to make a fast start, which will benefit the team.

Virat Kohli should follow his set template- Aakash Chopra

In a video on his YouTube channel, Aakash Chopra said that, if you look at the entire World Cup, Virat Kohli has a style of playing and when he follows that template he scores a lot of runs. Even in T20, he rarely starts hitting fours and sixes from the first ball. He takes his time. If he has to score runs at a strike rate of 150, he does so in the powerplay.

The 46-year-old former cricketer further said, “In New York or West Indies, the pitches will be such that there will be more chances of scoring runs in the first six overs. So ideally you want Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli to be together from the start. If you have to follow that template, start doing it now.”

Chopra spoke openly about the complexity of the Indian batting unit at this time. With Yashasvi Jaiswal and Shubman Gill in the side, it is unclear which path the team management will take. If Virat is asked to bat at number three and either Jaiswal or Gill opens, it will force Suryakumar Yadav to bat at number four.
