India are yet to tackle the annoying number four problem and with 2019 ICC World Cup months away, it will end up one of the ideas in the run-up to the quadrennial competition.
India have attempted various players, in certainty upwards of 11 since April 2015, in that position. What’s more, the most recent is Ambati Rayudu. He was splendid against the visiting West Indies a year ago, yet kept going just two conveyances in the first ODI against Australia at Sydney.
Previous India commander Sourav Ganguly feels that Rayudu may not be the response to the issue.
“I’m worried about Ambati Rayudu. He has scored keeps running in the sub-landmass however India need to check whether he can score keeps running outside the sub-mainland in light of the fact that the World Cup is in England. He can’t bat anyplace beneath number four.”
“These amusements in Australia and New Zealand will be imperative for him and will choose on the off chance that he can be India’s No.4 or not,” Ganguly disclosed to India TV.
In the interim, bad habit chief Rohit Sharma batted for Mahendra Singh Dhoni to come at four.
“By and by dependably feel that Dhoni batting at number four will be perfect for the group however we have Rayudu who has done extremely well now at number four. It thoroughly relies upon what the commander and mentor think about it. By and by, I would be upbeat if Dhoni bats at four,” Rohit said after the Sydney overcome.
At Sydney, Dhoni made a moderate 51 from 96 balls in India’s 34-run overcome which started another discussion about his present shape in a World Cup year.
