Virat Kohli is also close in the race as he has 3,308 runs in 99 games. When he will be focussing on ending this century drought at the international cricket, this would also be achievement for the former Indian captain.
While talking in the pre-match conference, Rohit Sharma has clearly state that he want to keep some decisions secret and thus, didn’t reveal the opinion combination for India.
“You can see yourselves after the toss tomorrow. Let us also keep some secrets,” he said.
“See, our team has decided, we have decided to try some things. Some things will work, some won’t. But there is no harm in trying. Only after trying do you get answers. If you don’t try, then you won’t get answers,” Rohit said.
“So whenever we get the opportunity, we definitely try some new combinations. But as far as team combinations are concerned, as I said you’ll only find out tomorrow. But our team has decided that we will keep trying new things. And if in that process, we face some difficulties, we still don’t have a problem with that,” he continued.
