New Delhi, Online Desk. Team India on Monday (September 12) announced its 15-man squad for the T20 World Cup 2022. After this, former Indian cricketer Wasim Jaffer gave a unique suggestion and asked captain Rohit Sharma to change his batting order. Jaffer urged Rohit to demote himself in the batting order and play at number four.

Former Indian opener batsman Jaffer said that wicket-keeper batsman Rishabh Pant should open with KL Rahul. It would be best for Rishabh Pant to open the batting to succeed in the shortest format. Jaffer also cited the example of how MS Dhoni encouraged Rohit Sharma to open with Shikhar Dhawan during the 2013 Champions Trophy.

Wasim Jaffer tweeted and wrote that the opening is a place where Rishabh Pant can give his best performance in T20 International cricket. Whereas Rohit Sharma can bat at No. MS Dhoni got Rohit Sharma to open in the 2013 Champions Trophy and what happened after that became history. Time has come when Rohit Sharma should take such a decision for Rishabh Pant. KL Rahul, Rishabh Pant, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma and Suryakumar Yadav will be my top 5 batsmen.

Let us tell you that Rishabh Pant is not able to score runs in T20 International cricket even after getting the opportunity again and again. He has played 58 matches for India so far, but has scored just 934 runs at an average of 23.9. Although Team India has faith in him and he is given a chance in big events and Pant is also very talented, but is not able to bat accordingly. Even in the Asia Cup 2022, the number of opportunities he got, he could not do anything special in his batting.
