Pathan gave his stamp of approval to Yashasvi Jaiswal to be Rohit Sharma‘s partner, followed by Virat Kohli at No. 3 and Suryakumar Yadav at No. 4.

As for Shubman Gill, while Pathan did not leave him out of the squad, he picked the Gujarat Titans captain as a back-up opener. 

However, the former player closed his doors to Dinesh Karthik, Ruturaj Gaikwad and KL Rahul from joining the squad.
