The previous day, world-class India batter Virat Kohli landed in Punjab to prepare for the forthcoming white-ball series with Australia. Recently, he returned to form, putting an end to his 10-day drought to reach 100 during India’s final T20I game in the series against Afghanistan in the Asia Cup 2022. He scored two fifties during the tournament and his 71st century in international cricket.
On Sunday, the captain Rohit Sharma confirmed that Kohli could be regarded as the third opener and will be required to start in a few matches.
“Rahul (Dravid) Bhhai and I talked about how we need to create Virat open in a few of the games since Virat has been our 3rd opener,” Rohit said during a media interview in Mohali in the lead-up to the T20I series against Australia that begins on Tuesday.
