India vs Australia | Good Dilemma to Have: Rathour on Opening Combination

1. Team News- India Don’t endorse idea of pitting people against each other: Virat Kohli on Shikhar Dhawan vs KL Rahul
Noah Ferguson | 14 January, 2020, 14:35

Praising Dhawan for getting back the groove, Kohli stated that he is against the idea of people pitting the pair (Dhawan and Rahul) against each other as a possible partner for Rohit Sharma in the upcoming ODI series against Australia.

Dhawan scored a brisk 52 in India's series-clinching win over Sri Lanka in the third and final T20I at the MCA Stadium on Friday.

Dhawan said that as a unit, the team wanted to bat first. "That is why it important to do the experiment and we can take that risk right now", he said.

"So that is why, consciously, we are doing it and the result is in front of you that we are winning even while batting first. The management will sit down and make the choice", Rathour was quoted as saying during the conference as quoted by IndiaToday.

"We are making (setting) big targets and that brings a lot of confidence to us as a team".

India have tried six different players at the crucial number three spot in the last six matches.

Virat Kohli recently stated that he will not pit the openers against each other but considering the series against Australia and Rathour echoes his thoughts. "Till World Cup comes, everyone is refined and know their job as well".

The Indian men's and women's teams for the New Zealand tour and ICC T20 World Cup, respectively, will be selected on January 12, according to Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) sources. Shreyas [Iyer] is batting really well. It's all about a team game. But today's one I can tell say that that was the reason. Among them, Manish Pandey's name is on top of the list as he couldn't transform his initial spark to an eternal flame. "So they can have more time, otherwise same pattern going on", Dhawan said, explaining the management's rationale.

In the team rankings, India have gained two points but remain in fifth position with 260 points, while Sri Lanka have lost two points and now have 236, the same as Afghanistan. "The bowlers did well to drag the match till the 18th over", he added.
