Srinagar: Former Pakistan cricketer Danish Kaneria has said that Asia Cup 2022 will change star India batsman Virat Kohli’s career.
Virat Kohli who is struggling for form has been named in India’s Asia Cup squad.
Speaking on his YouTube channel, Danish Kaneria backed Kohli to have a great outing in the UAE, predicting that the Asia Cup will change Kohli’s career.
“The Asia Cup will change Virat Kohli’s career. The tournament is crucial for him to prolong his career and I feel he will come good. However, many former cricketers have said that Kohli is just heavy baggage on the team if he doesn’t score runs. So he needs to think carefully about how he can make a comeback. This is because there are other dynamic batters like Iyer, Samson and Gill waiting in the wings,” he said.
Kanerai said that Kohli should bat at No.4 position.
“Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul will open. But I would put Suryakumar Yadav at No. 3 and then followed by Kohli. Kohli will need some time to settle-in and play carefully so I think he should bat at No.4,” he said.
Asia Cup will begin from August 27 onwards in UAE.
