Three Things Which Might Once Again Haunt India Under Ravi Shastri
India’s head coach Ravi Shastri has retained his head coach position. The cricket advisory committee confirmed the news on Friday in Mumbai. The Indian team had a successful run under the tutelage of Ravi Shastri. However, there were some boxes which were not ticked by the Indian team.
India enjoyed a successful run in the 50-overs version under the tenure of Shastri. The Men in Blue were able to register 45 wins in 63 ODIs with 15 losses, two no-results, and one tie. Moreover, India came up with solid performances in the shortest format of the game as Virat Kohli-led team won 25 matches of the 37 they played in Shastri’s stint as coach.
Meanwhile, we take a look at three things which might once again haunt India under the eyes of Ravi Shastri.
Here are they:
The middle-order conundrum.
India is yet to find solutions to its number four woes. In fact, the search for the number four position had begun two years ago but no batsman was given a longer run. Furthermore, Ambati Rayudu who had come up with consistent performances while batting at number four was not even picked in the World Cup.
Moreover, the number five and six batsmen have also not delivered the goods. India’s top three batsmen Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan, and Virat Kohli have done the lion share of the scoring. In fact, whenever, these three have flopped collectively, the team’s batting order has gone down like a house of cards.
Rishabh Pant is now backed to bat number four and it is anticipated that it is not the right decision. In fact, Shreyas Iyer should be the one batting at the troublesome position.
