- Rashid Khan announces five best players
- Two players from India
- Neither Rohit Sharma nor Dhoni
This is Virat Kohli’s fourth T20 World Cup in his career. With this World Cup, the player will vacate the position of T20 captain. This is a great opportunity for Kohli, who has yet to win an ICC title. India were out of the semi-finals of the recent ODI World Cup. They lost in the final of the ICC World Test Championship. In both, India lost to New Zealand. Kohli, who has scored 3159 runs, is the highest run scorer in world T20 cricket.
Hardik Pandya, the best all-rounder in the last two seasons, has been instrumental in the Mumbai Indians’ IPL success. This time too, Hardy is in India’s World Cup squad. But the fact that the player is not bowling is a minor headache for India.
Along with Pandya, Rashid has added Kieron Pollard to his list. Rashid says these are the two best batsmen he considers in T20. Both the players are the ones who can easily lead the team to victory no matter how many runs they make in stressful situations. New Zealand captain Kane Williamson and former South African AB de Villiers are the other players on Rashid’s list.
