With the Asia Cup, fans will get to watch Virat Kohli make a comeback to Twenty20 cricket, as India kicks off their campaign against arch-rivals and neighbors Pakistan. The six-team competition may be used by the Asian teams as practice for the T20 World Cup later this year, but Kohli, who is returning after a short absence, is still the center of attention. All forms of his play have been inconsistent, and the 33-year-old hasn’t scored a century in international cricket since November 2019.

KL Rahul will play his first big tournament since the 2022 IPL in the competition, while Kohli’s dismal run continues to be a heated subject of discussion. After spending a considerable amount of time on the sidelines due to a groin injury and a diagnosis of Covid-19, the batter rejoins the team. He and the Indian captain will be a deadly opening tandem, and he will be Rohit Sharma’s assistant.

Deep Dasgupta, a former India player, believes Rahul should drop to the middle order when he adjusts to the team. He also supported Shubman Gill as India’s opener during the ODI World Cup at home the following year.

“I agree that it’s challenging following such a strong series. But for now, the focus is on getting Rahul ready for the opening position in the Asia Cup T20. His need for extensive at-bat time is a top concern. Given that I believe Shubman is being prepared to open for the ODI World Cup, I believe this arrangement will only last a short while “According to Dasgupta, who is now commenting in “The Hundred,”

Recently, Gill chose to stay unmoved by his detractors’ complaints about his poor strike rate, claiming that they will always exist.
