    Another potential opener for India, KL Rahul, can be a great choice for the concerned role. He was opening the innings for India in the ODIs before being pushed down the order to provide solidity in the line-up.

    Rahul has been a successful opener for his respective sides. In the ODIs for India, he has amassed 915 runs in 23 innings at an average of 43.57, including three centuries and six fifties.

    If Rahul takes up the opening charge, the Rohit Sharma-led India can fit in both Shreyas Iyer and Suryakumar Yadav in the line-up. However, it will be a bit unfair to Ishan Kishan.
