‘Virat Kohli will continue to bat at number 3 for India in the ICC World T20 2022’-Wasim Jaffer clears the air surrounding the future of Virat Kohli in the T20 World Cup

Wasim Jaffer, a former batsman for India, believes that Virat Kohli will maintain his status as the number three batsman for India during the next Twenty20 World Cup in Australia in October. Jaffer said that KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma should open the batting for India, and he also mentioned that players like Rishabh Pant, Sanju Samson, and Ishan Kishan may be useful additions to the team.

The former Indian opener is quite pleased with the aggressive attitude that India has been taking, and he feels that this has enhanced India’s chances of winning the T20 World Cup as a result. Jaffer also discussed the schedule and how players need to be able to adapt to compete in several forms.

What did Wasim Jaffer say about Virat Kohli?

“Virat will maintain his position as the team’s No. 3 player going forward. KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma should open, and other players like Rishabh Pant, Sanju Samson, and Ishan Kishan can contribute considerably to the team,” stated Jaffer while participating in a session of the “CricChat show” on the Sharechat app. 

“I get the impression that the aggressive strategy that India has adopted is extremely lovely to see in action. There is a good possibility that India will win the T20 World Cup,” Jaffer added.

“Adapting to each of the three forms of cricket would have been a very challenging endeavor (ODI, T20, and Test). You are going to have to undergo a transformation and adapt to the new system or else you will cease to exist. Even though I have a great deal of respect for guys like Cheteshwar Pujara, it is impossible to play like him in this period since doing so would limit you to playing just Test cricket, which is also not a given,” the former Indian batter remarked.

When asked about his recent exchange on social media with the former captain of England, Michael Vaughan, he said that he does not like it when other people criticize India. He said that he was in a position to respond to the criticism.
