Sydney: Former Australia pacer Brett Lee believes that India should make in-form batsman KL Rahul the ‘pillar’ of the innings in the T20 World Cup to ease the pressure on skipper Virat Kohli.

Team India is a strong contender for the title win
Lee believes that the Indian team, the 2007 champions, will be a strong contender for the title. India has to play Pakistan in the first match on 24 October. “England team is always a big threat on the basis of their experience but in my view India are strong contenders for the title,” Lee told ‘foxsports.com.au’. He said, ‘India has many young players because of the Indian Premier League. They also have fast bowlers and India’s top order is amazing.

KL Rahul will be the highest run-scorer in the World Cup
Lee said that Rahul can be the highest run-scorer in the World Cup. He said, ‘I think Rahul will score the most runs. His performance in IPL was good. India needs to make Rahul the pivot of the batting as it will take the pressure off Kohli. This will allow Kohli to show his natural game. Maybe this is Kohli’s last tournament as a captain, so he will definitely want to do well.

Suryakumar Yadav will be the next star of India
He also said that Suryakumar Yadav will prove to be India’s next star. “I think Suryakumar Yadav will be the next star,” he said. Lee also said that Australia have picked the best team and they can be a challenge for India. India and Australia will play a warm-up match in Dubai on October 20.
