RCB batter Virat Kohli is currently in the form of his life in the ongoing edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL). The star batsman is the current Orange Cap holder in IPL 2024 with 634 runs from 12 matches, averaging 70.44 at an impressive strike-rate of 153.51.

Meanwhile, former India captain Sourav Ganguly said the Indian team management should make Kohli open in the upcoming T20 World Cup to exploit the star batter’s rich vein of form in the ongoing IPL.

“Virat is playing exceptionally well. The way Kohli is batting, you need to use him as opener in T20 World Cup. He should open, evidenced by his last few IPL innings which have been outstanding,” said Ganguly during an interaction.

According to Ganguly, India have picked a balanced squad for the T20 World Cup which has the wherewithal to land the trophy after a gap of 17 years.

“This is an excellent squad. I think they have picked the best possible squad. Apart from batting depth, bowling looks excellent. Bumrah is the best fast bowler in the world at the moment. We have experience in Kuldeep, Axar, Siraj. It’s an ideal combination we have this time,” said Ganguly.
