3 players who should replace flop KL Rahul in T20 World Cup for opening with Rohit
In the Super-12 round of T20 World Cup 2022, Team India may be fast moving towards the semi-finals by winning both their matches, but the team’s opening batsman and regular vice-captain KL Rahul is constantly disappointing the fans with his poor performance. In both the matches played so far, KL Rahul could not even cross the 10 mark. However, apart from KL Rahul, Team India has 3 such batsmen who are considered to be strong contenders for the opening.
Virat Kohli, who has been battling poor form for the last three years, has finally returned to his explosive form. So far in this tournament, 2 half-centuries have come out with his bat in two matches. Let us tell you that Virat Kohli comes to bat at number three in the Indian cricket team. But looking at the form of KL Rahul at present, Virat Kohli should be sent for the opening in his place.
Suryakumar Yadav surprised everyone by opening the innings with captain Rohit Sharma during the series against West Indies. Although in the first two matches as an opening batsman, he was not able to play big innings, but in the third match, he scored a half-century to show that he can open the innings if needed.
On several occasions, Rishabh Pant has started the innings for Team India along with captain Rohit Sharma and has also scored runs during the opening. However, due to his getting out after playing bad shots for some time, the team is not being given a chance in the playing XI. In both the matches played so far of the T20 World Cup 2022, he has had to spend time sitting on the bench. But considering KL Rahul’s poor form, it would not be wrong to say that Rishabh Pant should be given a chance to open the innings in his place.
