Instead of Shikhar Dhawan or KL Rahul, Brad Hogg backed skipper Virat Kohli to open with Rohit Sharma.
While Hogg backed Suryakumar Yadav to bat at number three, he shifted KL Rahul to number four.
The former Aussie spinner didn’t have any doubt in picking Rishabh Pant as the wicket-keeper of the team.
Allowing India to have six bowling options, Hogg went with Hardik Pandya and Ravindra Jadeja as all-rounders.
T Natarajan and Deepak Chahar couldn’t find a place as Hogg put Shardul Thakur, Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Yuzvendra Chahal, Jasprit Bumrah in the bowling attack.
