Top 5 Indian batsmen for the #4 spot in the ICC World Cup 2019
The count down has begun for the much awaited mega event as all the top 10 teams will look to lock horns with each other. As the preparations have entered into the final phase, most of the teams are ready with their blueprint of the final squad.
The Indian team are well on track with their preparations and have sorted out most of their plans for the upcoming world event. The big puzzle which remains unsolved is who will get to bat at #4 for the mega tournament.
Currently, Ambati Rayudu has looked good in bits and pieces but has not sealed the number four position. The hunt for the middle order spot has not stopped and will try out a few players before entering the tournament.
With only 9 ODI matches left before the ICC World Cup 2019, let us find out which current Indian batsmen have a good chance to bat at number four.
#5 Kedar Jadhav
Kedar Jadhav has been one of the most underrated performers for the Indian team. His crucial contribution both with the bat and ball has played a pivotal role in India's winning contribution.
Unfortunately, Jadhav had been missing out a lot of matches due to lack of fitness and injuries. It looked like he was out of the race for the World Cup, but his comeback performance against Australia in the recent series made sure that he is in the contention for the middle order slot.
The pocket-sized dynamo has all shots in his arsenal and can play unorthodox shots in pressure situations. His batting average of 46 and strike rate of 109 speaks volume of his power hitting.
The Indian team needs a batsman at number four who can be aggressive and can counter-attack in case the top order fails. Jadhav is the perfect player for these kinds of situations and can be one of the contenders for the no. 4 spot.
