|Ind Vs Aus|
The Indian cricket team proved their strength by defeating England 3–2 in the recently concluded T20 series. Team India beat England by 36 runs in the last match. In the series, which was considered very important for Team India before the T20 World Cup, Virat and the team management did many experiments and tried many options in the batting order, especially in the opening. The Indian team tried four different pairs in the opening slot in the five-match series. However, during this time he got both success and failure.
Now Virat & Co. is ready to enter the ODI series. But the team management will once again be in the grip of the playing XI. Because compared to his last series with Australia, this time too many players have changed. While many new players like Suryakumar, Krunal, and the famous Krishna have got a chance, many star players like Bumrah-Shami and Jadeja are also out. The biggest question of all was about the opening batting of Team India. But captain Virat Kohli has clarified the situation on this.
Dhawan and Rohit will
talk to the media a day before the opening match, Virat said that only experienced pair of Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan will start the innings in the ODI series. He said simply that the pair have been performing brilliantly for the last several years and when it comes to ODIs, only Shikhar and Rohit will open. There is no doubt about it.
Virat will open in IPL:
Virat had a tremendous performance in the last T20 against England, opening with Rohit for the first time and both gave a strong start to the team. After this, Virat had said that he would like to open with Rohit even further and will bat in the same order in the IPL as well. At the moment, Virat spoke again on this and said that it was a strategic move and it worked very well for him. The captain said that he will play the same role in IPL 2021 and will play any role according to the circumstances of the team. He made it clear that he would have to change his position to give a chance to a player like Suryakumar Yadav.
Consent to Rohit:
Virat agreed with Rohit saying, 'As Rohit mentioned, it was a strategic move but we enjoyed batting together and we saw the effects of batting together. This doesn't need to continue in the future. I am going to open in IPL to have all the options available. Now I want to understand my role as an opener so that I can open a slot for a player like Surya. I need to be able to play any type of role the team needs. We will decide on this at the time of the World Cup.
