New Delhi: Team India has started its preparations for the ODI World Cup to be held in India next year. The competition has started for every batting spot except skipper Rohit Sharma and veteran batsman Virat Kohli at No.3.

The biggest topic of this debate is about the role of the wicketkeeper. India has the option of Sanju Samson, Ishaan Kishan, KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant as wicketkeepers. It will be interesting to see who the selectors give priority to in the World Cup. Meanwhile, former India captain Sunil Gavaskar has given his decision on the role of wicketkeeper.

Gavaskar said on Sony Sports, “Dhawan and Rohit Sharma do most of the opening. Virat Kohli comes at number three. KL Rahul is batting at number 5. May be he is trying to strengthen this position. This has also given India an additional option.

Smith said – Everyone opens TV only to see him, not Rohit or Virat, the fan of the new batsman.

He further said, “If you have a batsman who can also do wicketkeeping as an option in the middle order. So you can consider feeding any other bowler. I call Rahul an all-rounder. Because he can do wicketkeeping, he can open and can bat at number 5 as well. As far as I am concerned, KL Rahul is an all-rounder. The kind of experience he has and the kind of shots he has, he is the kind of finisher you want to see playing at No.5 or 6.

Please tell that Rahul has played only eight ODIs this year. Where he scored 229 runs at an average of 32.71 with two fifties. He scored an inning of 73 runs in 70 balls in the first ODI against Bangladesh.
