Team India worry about fourth batsman for World Cup
World Cup in England and Wales between May 30 and July 14
Sports desk The recent ODI series is not good for India. Team India lost in the same house to the team, who had been struggling for the last one year. India had defeated this team in their home. In the series, India had taken 2-0 lead, then lost 3 consecutive matches losing the series. This defeat has raised all the questions before the World Cup.
Prior to losing the T-20 series 2-0, Virat Kohli had said that only one-day matches will be counted for choosing the World Cup team. Even the players' performance in the IPL will not affect the World Cup team. It is true that India has done many experiments in the series against Australia. But it can not be taken as a pretext for poor performance of the team.
Rayudu, Rahul and Pant did not run at number-4
Nobody did impressive except Virat Kohli, Kuldeep Yadav, Bhubaneswar Kumar and Jaspreet Bumrah. Strengthening the middle order of the team for the Indian team management and selectors is a constant challenge. Prior to the series, Ambati was the most ardent contender of Raidu No. 4. They were completely flop in this series. KL Rahul and Rishabh Pant did not even go Only Kedar Jadhav influenced and strengthened his place.
Rahane-Pujara fourth claimant
To strengthen the team's middle order, two former captains of India have given two interesting suggestions. Dilip Vengsarkar kept Ajinkya Rahane talking about feeding him at number-4 while looking at his best record in England. Sourav Ganguly named Cheteshwar Pujara. Ganguly says that given the experience and form of Pujara, he can give stability to the team's middle order at number-4. Pujara believes in batting and batting. His fitness also makes him big for the fielding team.
Pujara scored runs in domestic cricket
Pujara has improved fitness in recent times. He also scored a lot in domestic limited overs matches T20 also put a hundred. Rahane has played 90 one-day internationals. They performed well in South Africa last year. It was said that the search for the number-4 batsman was completed. Then suddenly they got out of the team. Whose confidence in team management is, it will be a thing to see.
