Why is Virat Kohli set to open with Rohit Sharma?

In the Indian Premier League (IPL), Virat Kohli usually came to open for Royal Challengers Bengaluru with Faf du Plessis and he indeed had success in it. Rohit Sharma has been a phenomenal opening batsman but youngsters Shubman Gill and Yashasvi Jaiswal weren’t in their best form in the TATA IPL 2024.

This led the selection panel to think about Virat Kohli as an opener in the Indian Team for the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2024. However, as per the reports, Shubman Gill will be the backup opener of the Indian Team in this tournament and Yashasvi Jaiswal is likely to not get added to the squad.

If Riyan Parag continues the same performance throughout the tournament then it will be a huge benefit for the Indian Team in the T20 World Cup 2024.
