Not Kohli and Rohit, this Indian batsman will be the top scorer in the World Cup, says Brett Lee!

Former Australian fast bowler Brett Lee has said that India’s batting line-up should focus on KL Rahul. This will help ease the pressure on captain Virat Kohli. India, which won first place in 2007, is expected to have a big chance this time around. The World Cup starts on October 17. India’s first match will be against Pakistan on the 24th. “The England team with the best team and experience will be a big challenge for all the opponents. But my favorites this time are India,” Brett Lee told Fox Sports. Team India dominates world cricket in all three formats. One of the main reasons for this is that the best players are growing through the IPL. Lee said the best pacers and top order batsmen are emerging as part of the IPL. Lee considers KL Rahul to be India’s best batsman in the World Cup. Rahul-led Punjab Kings were eliminated from the IPL. However, he scored 295 runs in six matches for India in the UAE. Rahul will be India’s opener in the World Cup. If Kohli becomes the opener, Rahul may play in the middle order. “I think Rahul will be the highest run scorer in the World Cup. He was in good form in the IPL. India’s batting plans should focus on Rahul. If Rahul scores well, the pressure on the batsmen, including Kohli, will ease,” Lee said. This will be Kohli’s last T20 World Cup captaincy. He will want to end it as best he can. Lee added that Kohli should be able to bat in a spontaneous style without pressure.
