During the Q&A, Chopra also shared his thoughts on Pant’s start against England at T20Is. He thinks India may continue to experiment until Rahul returns from injury. The pre-Test opener commented:
“Pants can work as a corkscrew for T20Is. There’s only one way he plays. But where KL Rahul plays is a big question. Where will Kohli’s bat be is another question. Can’t decide now. As an opener until KL comes back. Or who knows, even Virat might turn on. Seriously, I don’t know what’s going to happen.”
