AB de Villiers says Virat is perfect to play at the No. 4 position

Former South African superstar AB de Villiers feels that Virat Kohli could be the answer to India's No. 4 conundrum at the World Cup.
While speaking on his Youtube channel, 'AB de Villiers 360’, a former IPL teammate of Kohli said, "We're still talking about who will be the No. 4 batter for India. I've heard some rumors about Virat possibly taking up that position. I would be a big supporter of that."

He further said that "I think Virat is perfect for No. 4. He can put the innings together and play any kind of role in that middle order. I don't know if he would like to do that. We know he loves his No. 3 position; he's scored all his runs there, but at the end of the day, if the team needs you to do something, play a certain role, you have got to put your hand up and go for it."
With Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul only recently returning to the squad after their long-term injuries, the middle order of Team India has been a topic of discussion before the Asia Cup and the World Cup.

Captain Rohit Sharma stressed the importance of flexibility in the batting order when India announced their Asia Cup squad and conveyed that players should be ready to bat at any position.
