Virat Kohli should open the innings with Captain Rohit Sharma in Asia Cup 2022

The T20 World Cup is to be played in Australia in October-November this year and before that Team India will also participate in the Asia Cup. All eyes will be on star batsman Virat Kohli’s form in the Asia Cup. Pakistan has announced the squad for the Asia Cup and it is believed that Team India will also announce the squad for the Asia Cup soon after the five-match series against the West Indies. Virat Kohli’s return to the field will coincide with the Asia Cup as he is also not part of the Indian team for the series against Zimbabwe. Along with the form of Virat Kohli, there is a constant discussion about which batting order he will play. Former cricketer Parthiv Patel and cricket analyst Harsha Bhogle believe that Virat should open the innings with Rohit in the Asia Cup.

Parthiv said on Cricbuzz, ‘Virat’s batting order becomes very important. I think it will be right for him to open because he has played his best season opening for RCB in IPL. Talking about International T20 cricket, Virat Kohli has played eight matches as an opener. During this, he has scored a total of 278 runs at an average of 39.71. In 2021, he also played an innings of 80 not out while opening.

On the other hand, Harsha Bhogle believes that the team management will see if Virat is able to hit the ball well or not, because if he starts hitting the ball with ease, the runs will start coming automatically. In the recent past, Team India has given players like Ishan Kishan, Rishabh Pant, Suryakumar Yadav a chance to open the innings. Rohit is almost certain to open the innings, but it remains to be seen who opens the innings with him in the Asia Cup?
