The upcoming ICC T20 World Cup is scheduled to take place from June 4 to 30 this year, hosted jointly by the West Indies and the United States.
“You might see KL Rahul at No. 4. If he wants to play the World Cup, he probably needs to bat at No. 4 (for LSG in the IPL). You might see one among Deepak Hooda, Ayush Badoni and Prerak Mankad playing at No. 3. They have plenty of options available to get the work done,” Chopra said on his YouTube channel.
“After No. 4, they (LSG) have Nicholas Pooran, Marcus Stoinis and Ayush Badoni along with Krunal Pandya down the order. Suddenly you see a lot of depth in the batting. So they have prepared a very good team,” Chopra further added.
