And for the opener spots, unanimously, kumble and Hayden went with Quinto De Kock and Rohit Sharma. They selected them as De Kock is second in the run chart with 591 runs and even Rohit is equally impressive with 503 runs.

Hayden said that,

“QDK for me has been the standout player. Rohit Sharma for obvious reasons. Those two inside the powerplay have been dynamic, If I had to put my life on two players getting runs in this World Cup. They are my number one and number two”. 

After this, they needed to choose the Number 3 and Number 4 places, and without any argument between them, they went with batters Virat Kohil and Rachin Ravindra.

“He is certainly the breakout young player of this World Cup. I am sure I would certainly go for Rachin Ravindra, whether you put him at no. 3 or no. 4, it doesn’t matter. He has been batting at 1, 2, 3, 4, you can put him wherever.

Virat Kohli, for sure. Yes, he has batter no. 3 for India. So if he bats no. 3, Rachin Ravindra bats no. 4. If Ravindra bats no. 3, we can use the right-left combination. It is very difficult to pick in a World Cup, your two choices,” explained Kumble.

Without any pressure, they have picked Glenn Maxwell and Heinrich Klaasen in the No.5 and No.6 positions of batters. They have chosen Maxwell for his exceptional Innings.

“Maxwell and Klaasen for me. The reason why, when you look at those stats again, I am going on strike rate, I am going on who is going to be under pressure.

I mean they are the real heads of both Australia and South Africa’s batting efforts with spin in particular. The strike rate of Maxwell is off the Richter scale, it’s not even 150, it’s 180.

Klaasen for the same reason as well, that is an enormous strike rate.”
