He’s (Virat Kohli) playing very well, there is no question about it. He will be India’s strength, key player, along with Rohit Sharma. Rohit’s form will be equally important. Last World Cup (2019) he got five hundreds, that’s unbelievable performance,

And probably this is his first and last World Cup as captain, he might still do it in the T20 World Cup but for the ODI event, there is still four years and I don’t think he’ll be playing in another few years. Everyone will be important, and I hope they stand up and perform,

Indian skipper Rohit Sharma will be looking to replicate his performance from 2019 WC. Rohit was in sublime form during that tournament smashing record 5-centuries and 648 runs in 10 matches.
