Irfan feels that this will probably be a brand new partnership between Dravid and Kohli because the two performed collectively for RCB and the Indian group.

“This will be a new partnership between Rahul Dravid as well as Virat Kohli, the captain. Especially in the longer format, I don’t see any problem because Rahul Dravid is the kind of guy who likes to come into the system, he doesn’t change the system much,” Irfan Pathan mentioned on Star Sports.
