Have India found the answer for their No. 4 problem in ODIs in Rahane?
How will Rahane perform at the number 4 position?

The number four position is the most interesting slot in the batting lineup in the 50-over format. Depending on how the top order performs, the batsmen have to adjust their game - some situations call for defensive play to steady the sinking ship while in others, they have to counter-attack with their aggressive batting. Some of the limited-overs greats, such as Mahela Jayawardene, Aravinda de Silva, Ross Taylor and AB de Villiers, have made a name for themselves by batting at the all-important spot for the majority of their career.

The Indian cricket team has been facing issues with their number four batsman for some time now. With Ajinkya Rahane, once a designated opener, now donning the role at two-down in the ongoing series against South Africa, we take a look at some of the greatest Indian batsmen to have played at this position in One Day Internationals.
