T20 World Cup 2024: Blender on the Blender! Should Virat be removed from opening? Team India’s T20 World Cup campaign hasn’t exactly been a dream run.

After losing to Ireland in the first match, they followed it up with a narrow defeat against Pakistan. In both these games, Virat Kohli’s batting has been a huge disappointment, scoring just 5 runs in total.

This poor performance has sparked major debate – should Virat be dropped from the opening slot?

Is that the right call though? Let’s break it down:

1. Virat’s Batting Woes:

There’s no denying Virat hasn’t been at his best. But hey, this guy’s one of the world’s greatest batsmen! Dropping him based on a couple of bad games might be a bit harsh.

2. Virat as an Opener:

Actually, Virat’s record as an opener is pretty impressive. In his 11 innings at the top, he’s smashed 2 centuries, 3 fifties, and over 300 runs, with a killer strike rate above 150.

3. Messing with the Lineup:

Benching Virat could throw the whole batting order into disarray. It might even affect the team’s confidence.

4. Who Replaces Him?

If Virat sits out, there’s no clear, experienced choice to take his place. Youngsters like Rishabh Pant and Ishan Kishan are talented, but lack the experience of high-pressure international matches.

So, should Virat be dropped as an opener?

It’s a tough one.

I think Virat deserves another chance. He’s a champion player and has the ability to bounce back. But, if he fails again in the next match, the team management might have to consider changes.
