Former Indian batsman Parthiv Patel proposed starting Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma together in the 2018 Asia Cup.
So the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 is drawing near, and Team India is making every effort to increase their chances of winning. Before the World Cup begins on August 28 in Dubai. India will compete in the Asia Cup in 2022. They will compete in Group A against Pakistan. Virat Kohli’s second chance at the Asia Cup would be eagerly anticipated by Team India. Parthiv Patel, a former cricketer for India, believes the ace hitter should start opposite Rohit Sharma.
“Virat Kohli’s abilities are unquestionable. Just his physical attributes and the role you want him to play are at issue. Because of this, whether or not they find the right blend, the Asia Cup becomes very significant—not just for him, but also from India’s perspective. Because that is what will open it, I’ll keep mentioning the combination, ” Parthiv said on Cricbuzz.
KL Rahul’s illness means that Virat Kohli might start the Asia Cup. They said he’d be available after the Asia Cup. But India has tried a lot of other openers in the meanwhile. Virat Kohli has been at ease playing as the opener for RCB. He served as the opening in all those great campaigns, “he added.
The debate over Virat Kohli’s form continued after he failed to contribute significantly in either the T20Is or ODIs against England. He did not play in the subsequent ODIs against the West Indies and was not selected for the T20I team either.
As Sri Lanka previously declared, the Asia Cup would take place in the United Arab Emirates. The tournament had to relocate from Sri Lanka due to the ongoing economic turmoil.
The Rohit Sharma-led side would play Pakistan in their opening match of the 2019 Asia Cup before taking the field in a qualifier. After the group stage games, in the Super 4 phase, the top two teams proceed to the final contests.
The Asia Cup will now be held in the United Arab Emirates.
