"Should open in the World Cup" - Wasim Jaffer wants Virat Kohli to bat at the top of the order at 2024 T20 World Cup

Former cricketer Wasim Jaffer opined that Virat Kohli should be opening the innings for Team India alongside left-handed batter Yashasvi Jaiswal.

He suggested that skipper Rohit Sharma should come at No. 3 or No.4 according to the situation of the match. Jaffer wrote on the microblogging platform X:

"Kohli & Jaiswal should open in the World Cup imo. Rohit & SKY should bat 3&4 depending on the start we get. Rohit plays spin really well so batting at 4 shouldn't be a concern."

Virat Kohli has an impressive record as an opener in the T20 format. Batting at the top of the order for Royal Challengers Bengaluru (RCB) in the recently concluded IPL 2024, he won the Orange Cap by amassing 741 runs from 15 innings at a strike rate of 154.69.
