The Asia Cup is to be played at the end of August, for which the Indian team will also be announced soon. But in the Asia Cup, all eyes will be on the form of Indian star batsman Virat Kohli. It is believed that the Indian team for the Asia Cup will be announced soon after the T20 series against West Indies is over.
Along with this, Virat Kohli will also return to the field.
However, there is a constant discussion about the form of Virat Kohli. Also, there is a lot of discussion about his batting order. Former Indian cricketer Parthiv Patel and analyst Harsha Bhogle believe that Virat Kohli should open with Rohit Sharma in the Asia Cup.
Talking on Cricbuzz, Parthiv Patel said- Batting order becomes very important for Virat. I think it will be right for him to open. We have seen him open for RCB in IPL and he has batted well.
Harsha Bhogle also believes that the team management should consider this. They should see whether Virat is able to check the ball well or not. If he starts hitting the ball with ease, the runs will start coming automatically. In the past, players like Ishan Kishan, Rishabh Pant, and Suryakumar Yadav have been given a chance to open the innings in the Indian team. Rohit Sharma opens. But it remains to be seen who starts the innings with Rohit Sharma in the Asia Cup.
