What if India brings a wicket-keeper as a opener and fill the place with a all-rounder in the middle? Wouldn't that be more secured option than having 2 skilled batters? By this formula Indian team can bring Sanju Samson as a opener oweing to his current form in the IPL where he used to play on the number 3 position which is not that differ from opener. While Sanju has showed good grades when he opens or come up in the order.

3. Rishabh Pant

If India still wants a right-left combination and the wicket-keeper-opener formula; who's better than Rishabh Pant who was actually trained to be the opener prior. Even Pant used to open for his franchise, Delhi Capitals in the IPL and could give more secure opening option to his team. This will not only give India the right combination but also some explosive starts with both Rohit & Rishabh going out of the park from first bowl.

4. Virat Kohli

Virat And Rohit

Nothing but just the best opening pair option India could get is Virat & Rohit going strong from the bowl 1. Besides the intent and the reputation this batters come with will just thrash the opponents before even innings start. This is not us brewing dreamy story but this has happened with England in 2021 when Rohit and Virat put fiery show when they opened putting a 94-runs partnership in just 9 overs.
