New Delhi. Teams of major cricket playing nations are busy preparing for the T20 World Cup to be held in October-November. The Indian team will start its preparation for this from September 20 with the T20 series with Australia. Earlier, Gautam Gambhir, a former Indian star player and who played a key role in making India’s champion twice, has given a big statement on India’s toss three star batsmen. This statement of Gautam is so serious that after listening to this, Virat, Rohit and KL Rahul can also create a rift between the fans. Former Indian batsman, commentator and BJP MP Gautam Gambhir believes that when any team goes to play big tournaments, in such a situation, the victory of the team should be thought more than the performance of the players.
Actually, Gambhir says that KL Rahul has more ability than Indian captain Rohit Sharma and former captain Virat Kohli. For information, let us tell you that KL Rahul captains the Lucknow Super Giants in the IPL and Gambhir is also present in the same team as a mentor. This is also believed to be one of the reasons for Gambhir coming in support of KL Rahul.
All these things were mentioned by Gautam Gambhir in the press conference of Star Sports. During this, he said, “As soon as Virat scored a century in the last match, everyone started praising him. We all forget the contribution of Rohit and KL Rahul after this. These two have been doing great consistently for a long time. Suddenly a debate starts that Virat should be opened. Think what must be happening to Rahul watching all this? You want to keep your top players pressure-free before a big tournament. Especially players like Rahul who have more ability than Rohit and Virat. We all have seen this proof many times in IPL and International cricket.
After this, Matthew Hayden also gave his opinion on whether Virat should open or not. Hayden said that we all know Virat, how much talent is there in him, he does not need to give evidence to anyone. Virat plays the pacers well. The Australian team is full of pacers. In the middle overs, the team relies on Adam Zampa. Mitchell Marsh is a master at finishing the pace with the ball. He can handle Virat. This is a big debate. I think Kohli should come at number three. Even though Rahul may not be in his best form, you can’t doubt it.
