Salman Butt says “Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul will open, Ishan Kishan can bat anywhere” in T20 World Cup 2021. Butt includes Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul will open the batting for India. Despite Ishan Kishan’s brilliant knock against England in a T20 World Cup 2021. Also, a warm-up game in Dubai on Monday. Kishan opened the batting with Rahul. Moreover, in India’s first warm-up clash ahead of the T20 World Cup. Whereas Kishan crushed 70 off 46 balls, Rahul made a blasting 51 off 24. The team featured in an opening stand of 82 in 8.2 overs. Additionally, India chased down a target of 189 with ease, winning the clash by seven wickets.
Despite Kishan’s bright innings against England on Monday. Butt suggests that India will stick to the Rohit-Rahul opening pair. In reviewing, India’s batting order for the T20 World Cup 2021.
“Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul will open, I don’t think that will change. Ishan Kishan can bat one down or in the middle-order or after Virat Kohli. He is in amazing form and can bat anywhere in the batting order,” Salman Butt said.
“I haven’t seen him in any kind of trouble either against the new ball or against the spinners. These are very good signs because he played Moeen Ali very well. Adil Rashid is a very good leg-spinner and he attacked him in a rather impressive fashion. As an opener, he was confident against the fast bowlers as well,” Butt added.
Lastly, Kishan top-scored for India in the warm-up encounter. Against England on Monday, Rahul was equally impressive. Also, smashing six fours and three sixes.
“The highlight of India’s batting, according to me, was KL Rahul’s knock. If anyone wants to watch beautiful batting, they must watch KL Rahul bat. The way he took on England’s bowlers, it seemed like he was batting against a bowling machine. He was able to hit the ball anywhere at his will. The standout aspect of his innings was that most of the shots he played were correct strokes. The kind of shots he played demonstrated the dangerous form that he is currently in,” Butt said.
