New Delhi. Former cricketer Aakash Chopra feels that KL Rahul could be the top run-scorer for India in the upcoming ICC T20 World Cup 2022. After the Asia Cup 2022, KL Rahul made a comeback in the T20 International series against Australia and South Africa. The flamboyant opener will be crucial for India in Australia, as he is adopting a fearless batting approach. He said it is important for Rahul to bat with freedom in the powerplays so that India can get off to a good start with skipper Rohit Sharma.
Aakash Chopra has suggested that KL Rahul has a chance to become the leading run-scorer for his team in the T20 World Cup. Chopra said on his YouTube channel, “KL Rahul can be the highest run-scorer for India in T20 World Cup 2022. He has a chance to bat all the 20 overs. He also has a chance to bat till the end. These pitches will be very suitable for him, as the ball will hit the bat well.

The India opener had scored 194 runs in 5 matches in last year’s T20 World Cup but failed to score big against Pakistan and New Zealand. The Indian team will miss its star pacer Jasprit Bumrah in this big tournament. Bumrah has been ruled out of the T20 World Cup squad due to a back injury. In Bumrah’s absence, Aakash Chopra suggested that Arshdeep Singh would be crucial for India with the ball, as Australian conditions would suit his bowling.
He said, “I am sure it will be Arshdeep Singh. He is going to bowl with the new ball and also in the death overs. There is also a possibility that he may be given the ball in the middle overs as well. He will love Australian pitches and big grounds. Chopra further said that if you say that you are the best team in the world and you say that you have the best depth or you claim that your league is the best in the world, then without any doubt you will win the T20 World Cup. You have to be a strong contender for that.”
