IND v ENG 1st ODI: Virat Kohli or KL Rahul at No 3? Tweeps Debate Who Is Better

Team India is all set to take on World No 1 team in ODI cricket, England, at their home in a three-match series starting July 12

Team India is all set to take on World No 1 team in ODI cricket, England, at their home in a three-match series starting July 12 at Trent Bridge, Nottingham.

Eoin Morgan-led England side is coming into the series having crushed the Australians 5-0 in their last bilateral engagement. In a pre-match conference, English batsman Joe Root has warned the Indian cricket team as he stated that “England will be a difficult side to play especially at home.”

The Indian team, on the other hand, recently won the three-match T20I series by beating hosts 2-1 and are now used to foreign conditions.

Ahead of the high-voltage encounter, there is a debate raging on Twitter as to who is going to bat at Number 3 — Virat Kohli or KL Rahul. The latter showed magnificent batting while batting at No 3 in the recently concluded T20 series, including a century.

Kohli has been the best Indian batsman to bat at No 3 position. Be it runs, average, strike rate, number of the fifties and centuries, Kohli stands tall among the others.
