'Keeping '19 WC in mind, need to assign specific roles'
Dambulla: India captain Virat Kohli wants specific roles for certain players keeping a two-year time frame leading upto the 2019 World Cup, in mind. "For us, it's about the time frame. It is not about which opposition we are playing. You can't pick and choose. I have never believed in that and we as a team don't believe in that," Kohli said when asked about whether he will use players depending on the opposition.
"Two years to go for the World Cup and now is the time to give players certain roles to get into the groove and understand what we need to do," said Kohli. The skipper confirmed that KL Rahul is a certainty in that middle-order while Kedar Jadhav and Manish Pandey will be fighting for the remaining middle-order slot.
