Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul, and Virat Kohli select themselves as the top 3 in the batting line-up. Rohit, being the captain of the side, is a sure-shot opener. Though he recently suffered from a back spasm in India vs West Indies T20 game, we expect him to recover on time. His partner will be KL Rahul.

Rahul was expected to be available for selection for the West Indies T20 squad, but after he tested positive, he could not take the flight to the Caribbean. All eyes will be on Virat Kohli, as the pressure of performance is mounting on him. It will be a perfect opportunity for him to return to his golden form, and India vs Pakistan match can be the ideal stage for him.
