Australia’s legendary player made a big statement about Virat Kohli, said- don’t play him otherwise…

New Delhi. The T20 World Cup has started. India will play their first match against Ireland on June 5. For this, the Indian team has also reached America. Team India is ready for this. How will the playing eleven of the Indian team be in the first match? This information is not yet available. What will be the opening combination? This is also not certain. Meanwhile, former Australian cricketer Matthew Hayden has said that either open Virat Kohli or don’t play him.

“You have to go with a left-right combination,” Matthew Haden said on ESPN. You don’t have five right-handers at once. The Australian team will definitely play Adam Zampa. You have to open Kohli or not play him. He is in really fantastic form. Rohit Sharma is an experienced player and I don’t think he will shy away from batting in the middle order. He has great records in T20 international cricket. He can bat at number four. Coming into the middle order, he can take charge of the batting.

Sourav Ganguly also gave his opinion for the opening

During the IPL, Sourav Ganguly in a conversation with PTI said that Virat is playing really well. Virat’s batting last night was something to watch. He soon scored 90 runs. You should make him open in the T20 World Cup. He has shown that he should open in the last few innings. Indian team is very good. The batting has depth and the bowling line-up also looks superb.
