Speaking to ESPNCricinfo, Matthew Hayden discussed India’s playing XI. He says that the top 5 or 6 batsmen in any playing eleven cannot be righties, in which case other teams will have an advantage. For this reason the top order should have a lefty. Hayden has picked Yashaswi Jaiswal and Virat Kohli as Team India’s openers, while he has kept Rohit Sharma at No.4.

Virat Kohli scored the highest 741 runs in 15 matches as an opener in IPL 2024. He managed to win the Orange Cap for the second time in this colorful league.

Kohli’s brilliant IPL 2024 season boosted India’s chances of opening with Rohit and the former skipper. Playing for Royal Challengers Bangalore, the 35-year-old won the Orange Cap after scoring 741 runs in 15 innings.

He said, “You have to have a left-right combination. You can’t have five right-handed batsmen in a row. Australia will call up Adam Zampa straight away. Kohli has to open or he won’t play in my team. In absolutely fantastic form.”
