Batsman Lokesh Rahul’s problems may increase. According to former captain Sourav Ganguly, if Rahul continues to perform like this, then Team India management will have to find a better option for number four. Ganguly has also talked about finding young talent for the upcoming T20 World Cup and giving him a place in the senior team. Ganguly said that Rahul is going to face a tough challenge from batsmen Shreyas Iyer and Manish Pandey in the coming times.
“There is also a need to select the best players and give them plenty of opportunities because we have many better players available in the domestic circuit,” he said. “Players will mature more and more over time and will idealize Bumrah, Bhuvneshwar and Shami which would be good signs for India in terms of fast bowling,” he said. Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan are the first names in the Indian team as openers. After this, captain Kohli starts to bat at number three. At the same time, Shreyas Iyer has overcome the problem of number 4 and has made his place in the ODI. Now Shreyas Iyer and Manish Pandey, who have been performing brilliantly in domestic cricket, are all set to replace Rahul in the limited overs.
