4 Changes India need to make before the next ICC Cricket World Cup
- These are four changes that India needs to make to their team before the next World Cup.
#3 A solid number four option
India’s biggest problem that has plagued them over the years has been their bleak middle order particularly the number four position. India has tried over 10 different batsmen at the number four position since the 2015 World Cup, and they still have not found a solid batsman who can play at this position.
Therefore, this should be India’s prime concern over the next four years. The team management should look to try a few more combinations and stick to one that works. Just like their top order is well set, India needs to find a batsman who can play at this position consistently for a considerable amount of time. Some good options for the number four spot could be Nitish Rana or Shreyas Iyer.
The BCCI selectors need to look for players who can rotate the strike as well as pull the team out of difficult situations when needed.
Whoever the Indian team management choose to bat at number four, they need to be given more chances to settle into their role comfortably.Published 21 Jul 2019, 00:21 IST
