Kohli Rethinks About India’s Batting Order

Kohli decides to renovate the batting order and listed himself as the 4th batter caused an uproar.

Virat Kohli’s decision to list himself down as the 4th batter caused an uproar as he makes way for specialist openers Shikhar Dhawan and KL Rahul. ‘(On batting at 4) We've had this discussion many times in the past as well. Because of the way KL (Rahul) has been batting, we have tried to fit him in the batting line-up. But I don't think it's gone quite our way whenever I batted at four so probably will have to rethink about that one’, Kohli stated. 

Kohli, the captain of the team addressed that there is a long-term top-order problem and have struggled to fit both Dhawan and Rahul in the side.

Rahul was initially India’s No.4 batsman during the World Cup and was able to hit his first ODI hundred at home when Dhawan sustained an injury. ‘It's about giving some guys opportunities. Every now and then, it's about putting people up there and testing them. People need to relax and not panic with one game. I am allowed to experiment a little bit and fail at times. Today was one of the days it didn't come off’, Kohli added.
