Top 5 Indian batsmen for the #4 spot in the ICC World Cup 2019
#4 Manish Pandey
When Manish Pandey played a binder in the IPL 2009 scoring a brilliant century, he became the first Indian batsman to score an IPL hundred and showcased his immense talent. He was a young prodigy at that time and was the next big thing in Indian cricket.
It took a while for Pandey to get into the international arena and finally made an ODI debut for India in 2015. The match-winning knock of 104 against Australia was a class apart and showed a great temperament while batting at number four and chased a huge target.
Since then he has blown hot and cold with the bat, and as a result, he could not cement his place in the Indian team. Pandey has all the ingredients of becoming a perfect middle order batsman and score runs at number four.
Pandey has scored consistently for India A team and recently scored hundred against New Zealand A team. Pandey could be a dark horse for the number four spot and is surely on the radar for the 50-over World Cup.
