“Maybe look at Virat too…”: Big prediction of former Indian cricketer

The ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022 is about to arrive and Team India is leaving no stone unturned to make the most of this prestigious event. Before the World Cup, India will play in the Asia Cup 2022, where they will face arch-rivals Pakistan in Group A on August 28 in Dubai. In the Asia Cup, Team India would like to give Virat Kohli a chance to redeem himself and former India cricketer Parthiv Patel feels that the star batsman can open with Rohit Sharma.

“There is no doubt about Virat Kohli’s abilities. It’s just about form and what position you want him to play in. That’s why the Asia Cup is so important not only for him but also for India’s outlook. Whether they get it or not. The right combination or not. I’ll keep on talking about the combination because that will be the key.” Parthiv said on Cricbuzz.

“You can also probably see Virat Kohli opening in the Asia Cup because KL Rahul is not fit. He said that he will be available from the Asia Cup and India have tried many other openers. Virat Kohli opening with RCB He is comfortable to do. He has everything. Those big seasons, where he came in as an opener,” he said.

The debate over Virat Kohli’s form continued after he failed to register big scores in T20Is or ODIs against England. He was rested from the ODIs against West Indies and is also not in the squad for the T20Is.

Earlier, it was confirmed that the Asia Cup will be hosted by Sri Lanka in the UAE. The tournament was moved out of Sri Lanka due to the ongoing economic crisis.

The match against Pakistan will be India’s first in the upcoming Asia Cup, and after this match, the Rohit Sharma-led side will face a qualifier. After the group stage fixtures, there will be a Super 4 stage, and the best two teams will advance to the final.


Earlier, announcing the move of the Asia Cup from Sri Lanka to the United Arab Emirates, Asian Cricket Council President Jay Shah said: “Given the current situation in Sri Lanka, the ACC has unanimously concluded after extensive deliberations that it would be appropriate to move the tournament from Sri Lanka to the UAE,” the ACC said in a statement.

He said, “Every effort was made to host the Asia Cup in Sri Lanka and the decision to move the venue to the UAE was taken after much deliberation. UAE will be the new venue while Sri Lanka will retain the hosting rights.” “
