In the picture, with Virat Kohli are Hardik Pandya, Jasprit Bumrah, MS Dhoni, Yuzvendra Chahal and Kuldeep Yadav.

Recently, former Indian opener K Srikkanth feels Rohit Sharma's ability to accelerate in an "instant" is a major asset for the team and his good form will ease the pressure on Virat Kohli during the ongoing World Cup. Rohit scored an unbeaten 144-ball 122 to anchor a successful chase against South Africa in India's World Cup opener

The 59-year-old Srikkanth, who was a member of India's 1983 World Cup winning team, also singled out Jasprit Bumrah for special praise. "The other standout performer was Jasprit Bumrah with the new ball. He really rattled the South Africans with his opening spell and that set the tone for the game," Srikkanth wrote. "Of course South Africa look a little demoralised after a tough start to the tournament, but his bowling was fantastic. "When you have Bumrah taking wickets early and forcing the opposition onto the defensive, that makes it easier for the spinners afterwards." Srikkanth feels India will face a problem of plenty in the pace department. "I probably would have picked Mohammad Shami, and I still expect him to play a part in this tournament, but Bhuvneshwar Kumar took his chance well," he wrote.
