Chopra stokes discussion on batting order in KL Rahul’s absence with “Does Ishan Kishan Open?”


<p>KL Rahul will be absent from the initial two games of the forthcoming Asia Cup 2023, including the thrilling match against Pakistan on September 2, according to Team India coach Rahul Dravid, who made the announcement on Tuesday. Therefore, Ishan Kishan is most likely to maintain wickets while Rahul is still getting over an injury. Rohit Sharma, the captain, recently said that the ailment is unrelated to the thigh problem he had during the IPL 2023, which is why he was forced to sit out of the action in the months before the Asia Cup.<img decoding=”async” class=”alignnone wp-image-152146″ src=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-thani-oruvan-2-starring-jayam-ravi-and-nayanthara-has-a-new-trailer-from-director-mohan-raja-download-2023-08-29t202229.064.jpg” alt=”theindiaprint.com thani oruvan 2 starring jayam ravi and nayanthara has a new trailer from director mohan raja download 2023 08 29t202229.064″ width=”1329″ height=”744″ srcset=”https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-thani-oruvan-2-starring-jayam-ravi-and-nayanthara-has-a-new-trailer-from-director-mohan-raja-download-2023-08-29t202229.064.jpg 300w, https://www.theindiaprint.com/wp-content/uploads/2023/08/theindiaprint.com-thani-oruvan-2-starring-jayam-ravi-and-nayanthara-has-a-new-trailer-from-director-mohan-raja-download-2023-08-29t202229.064-150×84.jpg 150w” sizes=”(max-width: 1329px) 100vw, 1329px” title=”Chopra stokes discussion on batting order in KL Rahul's absence with "Does Ishan Kishan Open?" 3″></p>
<p>Aakash Chopra, a former India opener, asked a pertinent question about Kishan’s batting position on X (previously Twitter), speculating that Rahul would be fully healthy for the Super 4 games of the Asia Cup.</p>
<p>Ishan had traditionally batted at number 4, but with captain Rohit Sharma out for the ODI series against the West Indies, he began with Shubman Gill.</p>
<p>That won’t be the case against Pakistan, as Chopra questioned if Rohit and Ishan would bat first or Ishan Kishan would bat at number four against Babar Azam’s team.</p>
<p>“KLR (KL Rahul) was unable to play in the first two games. creates a variety of debate topics…Ishan open or not? Where will Shubman bat, if yes? inquired about Chopra.</p>
<p>The remark continued, “Or Rohit-Gill-Ishan bat 1-2-3 and Kohli bats at 4? “, the former Indian opener wrote. Or open Rohit-Gill…Ishan at 5 and Kohli at 3? Or Tilak/SKY bats in position five, benching Gill?</p>
<p>Ishan Kishan hasn’t performed very well at number 4, he opens for the Mumbai Indians in the IPL, and he just played against the West Indies in ODIs. Nevertheless, Aakash Chopra made a very good argument. However, with Rohit and Gill up top, there is no way to make room for the Jharkhand wicketkeeper batsman without shifting Rohit or Shubman’s place in the lineup.</p>
<p>In order to accommodate the youthful Yashasvi Jaiswal during the Test series against the West Indies, Gill batted at number 3. However, the Punjab batsman failed to score much in any of his four innings, and with the exception of one fifty, he was unimpressive in the ODIs as well.</p>
<p>As a result, with Kishan’s optimum batting position still unknown, Rahul Dravid and Rohit will once again be forced to use their creativity to establish the appropriate balance in the opening two games of the Asia Cup.</p>
