Wasim Jaffer, a former cricketer, asserted that Virat Kohli would keep his No. 3 slot in the squad for the T20 World Cup in October-November.

Since 2019, Kohli has struggled in international cricket, as evidenced by the fact that the great batsman hasn’t reached a century. The former India captain was granted a break for the current West Indies trip and the ODI series against Zimbabwe.  While in the series against England he was unable to make an impact.

Many have questioned Kohli’s place in the team for the T20 World Cup.  Jaffer believes that the No. 3 batter of the team will retain his position in the side.

The former cricketer discussed the team for the World Cup during the audio session of “CricChat Powered by Parimatch” on the Sharechat app. He stated that Kohli will keep his berth in the side and that KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma should open for India during the World Cup.

India’s Chances Of Winning The T20 World Cup Are Bright: Wasim Jaffer

Jaffer added that players like Ishan Kishan, Sanju Samson, and Rishabh Pant can help the team’s cause and that he likes the aggressive stance India is currently taking.

The ex-cricketer added that India has a good chance of winning the T20 World Cup.

Virat will remain in his original No. 3 place in the team. KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma should open, and other players like Rishabh Pant, Sanju Samson, and Ishan Kishan can contribute significantly to the squad. I feel that the aggressive approach that India has undertaken is very nice to witness. India’s chances of winning (T20 World Cup) are bright,” said Wasim Jaffer.

“Fitting in all three formats of cricket would have been exceedingly tough (ODI, T20, and Test). You must change and adapt to the format, or you will cease to exist. Despite my high esteem for players like Cheteshwar Pujara, one cannot play like him in this era, or you’ll merely play Test cricket, which is also not guaranteed,” added Jaffer
