Chopra stated to his Youtube channel that Rahul is in better touch than Sharma and Kohli.
“The first thing is the batting order, who is going to open? The last time when they played, Rohit and Kohli had opened, and both had hit a lot and the talk started to make them open because Rahul was not making runs at that time. But now Rahul is firing. He is not walking; he is running and running better than Rohit and Virat,” Aakash Chopra said.
While choosing KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma as his two openers. Chopra has the following expectations from the duo cricketer.
“So, please get Rohit and Rahul to open. Virat Kohli at No.3, I want to see how Surya is batting. I want the carefree and fearless approach from Rahul. I want the big innings from Rohit because he is only showing the trailer, we haven’t seen the picture for a long time in white-ball cricket,” Aakash Chopra said.
KL brought his unstable side to the fore within the Punjab Kings’ final match of IPL 2021. Against the Chennai Super Kings. Meanwhile, Sharma got off to begins but did not play significant thumps within the UAE leg. And then Hardik Pandya and Rishabh Pant and as his finishers. Aakash highlighted the question marks. It’s about the latter’s ability to bowl.
“Virat Kohli should continue playing the way he is playing. He anyways plays very well in the World Cup. I will keep Rishabh Pant at No.5, Hardik Pandya at No.6, and that’s my big question – Hardik Pandya’s bowling,” Chopra said.
“Lastly, If Hardik Pandya is bowling, we are all happy. You will have to change your batting order entirely if Hardik Pandya is not bowling. How will you do that, I am unable to understand,” Chopra added.
