2. Virat Kohli
An in-form Virat Kohli will be crucial to India’s success in the T20 World Cup later this year. The former India skipper has been going through a rocky patch with the bat in the last few years and will be keen to get his Midas touch back by the time the global T20 event commences.
Kohli is known to bring out his best in challenging conditions and Australia remain his favourite country to deliver his A-game. The 33-year-old is likely to bat at No.3 and a lot will depend on how he fares with the bat throughout the competition.
Kohli has 3,296 runs at a remarkable average of 51.5 in 97 T20Is, according to his statistics in the shortest format of the game. He also boasts a healthy strike rate of 137.68. The right-handed batsman has 30 career half-centuries. Kohli will look to go all guns blazing in the T20 World Cup and make it a memorable one.
