Before the Asia Cup 2023, the problems of the Indian team were not taking the name of reducing. From injuries to players to the batting order, the team management is facing hurdles. Rohit Sharma’s troubles have increased further with KL Rahul being ruled out of two matches of the tournament. KL Rahul will be unavailable for the matches with Pakistan and Nepal. Therefore, many changes can be seen in India’s batting order during these two matches. A big change can be seen in the batting order of Virat Kohli. In such a situation, at what number will he bat, let us know.
There will be major changes in the batting order of Team India against Pakistan:
In the absence of KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma can include Ishaan Kishan in the playing eleven. The performance of the young batsman was impressive during the ODI series played against the West Indies. That’s why the captain and team management can bet on Ishaan Kishan. However, due to this, there can be a change in India’s batting order.
Because Ishaan Kishan’s performance as an opener in 50-over cricket has been amazing. Batting at this number, he has scored a lot of runs. Not only this, Ishaan Kishan has also scored a double century in this position. Opening for India, Ishan Kishan has scored 184 runs in three matches at an average of 61.33.
Virat Kohli can be seen on this number:
If Ishaan Kishan comes to open, then his partner will be captain Rohit Sharma, due to which Shubman Gill will have to come to bat at number three. However, Virat Kohli comes to bat in this order for Team India.
But if Shubman Gill had to come down to bat at number three, then Virat Kohli can bat at number four again. For this reason, Shreyas Iyer, who is returning from injury, can appear at number five. If Suryakumar Yadav is given a place in the playing eleven, then Shreyas Iyer can bat at number seven.
