New Delhi. The countdown to the ICC T20 World Cup 2024 has begun. The 9th edition of the T20 World Cup will begin with a match between the USA and Canada. Team India will play its first match against Ireland on June 5. Virat Kohli should open for the Indian team in this T20 World Cup. This is not being said by us but by former Australian cricketer Ricky Ponting.

Ricky Ponting while talking to the ICC said, “The selectors have given a place to Yashasvi Jaiswal in the team. It clearly means that they are going with a left-handed batsman. But I think the team management Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli Will go to open with Virat Kohli for me, he can play his role in opening and if scoring players like Suryakumar Yadav and Rohit Sharma are included, who bat with high strike rate. If so, amazing batting will be seen.”

Ganguly also supported the opening
Sourav Ganguly had earlier said that Virat is really playing amazing. The batting that Virat did last night was worth watching. He soon scored 90 runs. You should make him open in the T20 World Cup. In the last few innings he has shown that he should open. Indian team is very good. There is depth in the batting and the bowling line-up also looks excellent.

Let us tell you that Virat Kohli has scored 708 runs in 14 innings in this season of IPL. During this period he has scored 5 half-centuries. Virat's average has been more than 60. In this IPL, Kohli has played innings of 21, 77, 83*, 22, 113*, 3, 42, 18, 51, 70*, 42, 92, 27 and 47 runs. Seeing this figure, veterans are advising that Virat should open in the World Cup only.
