Before the T20 World Cup, Team India has to play 10 T20 matches, this means that every match is important for the team because the team management will not want to tamper with that team too much. Dinesh Karthik has presented his claim as a finisher. Sunil Gavaskar also wants to see Dinesh Karthik in the team. Apart from this, the return of Suryakumar Yadav is also fixed.
Gavaskar’s choice as an opener –
It is very important in T20 cricket that you have an opening pair that can score runs fast in the powerplay so that the incoming batsmen can bat without any pressure. Former cricket great Sunil Gavaskar has no doubts about Team India’s opening pair. He said that all the players should prove their fitness before the World Cup. He said that according to me the opening pair will be KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma if Rahul remains fit.”
Rahul’s batting as an opener –
Talking about T20 cricket, KL Rahul has been the most successful as an opener. He has scored 1392 runs in 38 innings at an average of 39.77, with 92 runs being his highest score. He has played 15 half-centuries as an opener.”
Rahul is currently injured –
Currently, KL Rahul is battling a growing injury, due to which he had to withdraw from the series against South Africa at the last moment. Rahul is currently in Germany for his treatment and is expected to be a part of the Indian T20 cricket team soon. Rahul has been included in the squad for the 5th Test against England. However, his replacement has not been announced yet”
“The T20 World Cup is going to start from October 16 and India will start their journey with arch-rivals Pakistan on October 23 at the MCG ground”
