The first T20 International match is going to be played on Friday, 12th March 2021. For India, the main aim will be to get the ideas of the player for the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup.
Captain Virat Kohli cannot get a better opposition than the world-class English white-ball side to test their players. Skipper Kohli and Coach Ravi Shastri need to decide the opening partner for Rohit Sharma. As per the experts, KL Rahul could be the best option to open with Rohit.
Rahul’s selection is a no-brainer but then there is Dhawan. Dhawan is one of the most senior in the team and has been a terrific performer at different times. If Virat Kohli chooses to adjust Dhawan, then Rahul might be shift down at No.4.
