I see myself batting at No.3 for RCB: Kohli
Kolkata, April 7 - Virat Kohli on Saturday suggested he will bat at his preferred No.3 position for Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB) in this edition of the Indian Premier League (IPL) given the abundance of options in their squad.
RCB has often lacked options as far as opening batsman is concerned, but this time the likes of veteran New Zealander Brendon McCullum, South African stumper Quinton De Kock, England all-rounder Moeen Ali, Manan Vohra, Parthiv Patel and Mandeep Singh will give the Daniel Vettori-coached side a lot of options.
Stating that he sees himself batting at No.3, a position he has made his own for India in limited over cricket, Kohli said it will also depend on the opposition and the situation the team is in.
"In the past it was more or less that I had to (open the batting). I quite enjoyed that role. Having specialists at that order and I've done well for Indian team at three. I've a good understanding of playing at that position and gives the team a lot of stability," India skipper Kohli told reporters on the eve of the their IPL 11 opener against Kolkata Knight Riders at the Eden Gardens here.
