Ponting Suggests Kohli as Opener for India in T20 World Cup

Australian cricket legend Ricky Ponting has advocated for Indian batsman Virat Kohli to open alongside captain Rohit Sharma in the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup, emphasizing the importance of strike rates in modern cricket. Ponting highlighted Kohli’s stellar form as an opener for the Royal Challengers Bangalore in the Indian Premier League, despite recent scrutiny over his strike rate in the role. While Kohli has traditionally batted at number three for India, Ponting believes the move to open would be beneficial. The India squad for the tournament includes Rohit Sharma as captain, with Yashasvi Jaiswal also in contention.
