Earlier on Saturday, ace India batter Virat Kohli touched down in Punjab for the upcoming white-ball series against Australia. He recently roared back to form, ending his 1020-day century drought in India’s last T20I match against Afghanistan at the Asia Cup 2022. He smashed two fifties in the tournament and notched up his 71st international century.
Meanwhile, skipper Rohit Sharma on Sunday confirmed that Kohli is being considered as the third opener and ‘will have to open in some of the games.
“Rahul (Dravid) bhai and I have had a chat that we will have to make Virat open in some of the games because he is our third opener,” Rohit said during a media interaction in Mohali ahead of the T20I series against Australia that starts from Tuesday.
“In the last match we saw what he did (as opener) and we are obviously happy about that,” Rohit said recalling Kohli’s sparkling unbeaten 122 against Afghanistan.
