Head coach of the Indian cricket team, Ravi Shastri, had said a couple of days ago that if there is a pressing need to get flexible, then he would deploy Virat Kohli to bat at No. 4 at the 2019 World Cup, instead of the captain’s regular No. 3 spot.
However, former Indian captain Sourav Ganguly gave his take on where Kohli should bat at the mega-event and disagreed with Shastri.
“Virat Kohli will be coming back in the series to play at No.3. I was reading in the papers that Ravi (Shastri) wants him to play at No.4 but I don’t know who will play at No.3 then. Maybe Ambati Rayudu will play at No.3 with Kohli at No.4 but I don’t think that it is the right move because Kohli at No.3 is a huge player and this is India’s strength in ODIs – Shikhar Dhawan, Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli,” Sourav Ganguly told India TV.
