Australian legend made a big statement about Virat Kohli, said- don’t feed him or else…

New Delhi. The T20 World Cup has started. India will play its first match against Ireland on June 5. The Indian team has also reached America for this. Team India is ready for this. What will be the playing XI of the Indian team in the first match? This is not known yet. What will be the opening combination? This is also not decided. Meanwhile, former Australian cricketer Matthew Hayden has said that either make Virat Kohli open or don’t play him.

Matthew Hayden said on ESPN, “You have to go with the left-right combination. You cannot have five right-handers together. Australia will definitely play Adam Zampa. You must make Kohli open or don’t play him. He is really in great form. Rohit Sharma is an experienced player and I don’t think he will be ashamed to bat in the middle order. He has an amazing record in T20 International cricket. He can bat at number 4. He can take the responsibility of batting by coming in the middle order.”

Sourav Ganguly also gave his opinion to open the innings

Sourav Ganguly had told PTI during IPL that Virat is playing really well. The way Virat batted last night was worth watching. He scored 90 runs very quickly. You should make him open in the T20 World Cup. He should open and he has shown this in the last few innings. India’s squad is very good. There is depth in batting as well as the bowling unit is also looking great.
