Former Australia fast bowler Brett Lee believes that India should make in-form batsman KL Rahul the ‘pillar’ of the innings in the T20 World Cup. There will be less pressure on captain Virat Kohli. Lee believes that the 2007 champion Indian team will be a strong contender for the title. India has to play Pakistan in the first match on 24 October.
Lee told ‘fox sports.com.au’ that the England team is always a big threat on the basis of their experience but in my view India is a strong contender for the title. He said, ‘India has many young players because of the Indian Premier League. They also have fast bowlers and India’s top order is excellent.
‘Rahul can score the most runs in the World Cup’
Brett Lee said that Rahul can be the highest run-scorer in the World Cup. He said that I think Rahul will score the most runs. His performance in IPL was good. India should make Rahul the pivot of the batting as this will reduce the pressure on Kohli. With this Kohli will be able to show his natural game. Perhaps this is Kohli’s last tournament as a captain, so he will definitely want to do well.
He also said that Suryakumar Yadav will prove to be the next star of India. I think Suryakumar Yadav will be the next star. Lee also said that Australia has picked the best team and it can be a challenge for India. India and Australia will play a warm-up match in Dubai on October 20.
