The ODI World Cup will be hosted by India from October 5. For this, all the 10 teams are making rigorous preparations. Strong contender and host India’s first match will be against Australia on October 8. The answer to who will be at number 4 in the World Cup for Team India has probably been found.
World Cup starts from October 5:
The Mahakumbh of cricket i.e. One Day World Cup will start from 5th October. 10 teams including India are participating in this ICC tournament to be held every four years. Team India will be captained by Rohit Sharma, who is considered a strong contender. India has a great chance to win the World Cup after 12 years. He had the distinction of becoming world champion in 2011 under the leadership of legendary Mahendra Singh Dhoni.
Who will land at number 4:
The question of who will be at number 4 for India remained for a long time. Now perhaps everyone has got the answer. There is every hope of Shreyas Iyer getting a chance in the playing XI in place of Ishan Kishan. In such a situation, only Iyer will be at number 4. Shubman Gill will open the innings with Rohit Sharma. Virat Kohli will land at number 3. Only Shreyas Iyer can be seen coming after him. Then KL Rahul will bat at number 5. Rahul will also play the role of wicketkeeper.
More options headache for Rohit-Dravid:
Having too many options for the team can sometimes become a headache. Captain Rohit Sharma and coach Rahul Dravid must be thinking about what could be the best playing XI considering the pitch and conditions. Depending on the field and pitch, it is inevitable that there will be changes in the bowling department. Whatever role has been given to Ishaan in recent times, he has completed it brilliantly. After KL Rahul’s arrival in the team, he may have to sit out. Rahul will bat at number 5.
Advantage to the opposing team:
By keeping left-handed batsman Kishan out, the bowlers of the opposing teams will also benefit to some extent because due to right-handed batsmen till the 6th order, they will not have to make much change in their line length. It is expected that the Indian team will be able to make the combination of its top and middle order properly. The team was successful in reaching the semi-finals in 2019 but during this period the mystery of 4th order batting could not be solved.
