Kohli can make the big record
Kohli can complete his 10000 runs in ODIs from this series. Kohli has scored 9779 runs in ODIs and he needs only 221 runs to join the ‘Ten Hajari’ club. This series will be like the veteran batsman and former captain Mahendra Singh Dhoni himself who proved to be struggling during the Asia Cup. Dhoni scored only 77 runs in four matches of the Asia Cup. With the coming of Pant, the pressure to do well on Dhoni is increasing. India is struggling to find a permanent batsman for the number-4 in the mediocre. But here, Ambati Rayudu will have the chance to land on number-4 and prove himself. Rayudu would like to repeat his Asia Cup form here too, where he scored 175 runs in six innings.
