In the last series against New Zealand, India had not performed well. Dhoni’s positive attitude saying that they have the right components in right proportion to win this upcoming series against England. We are going to discuss about top 5 Indian Batsman for India England series, 2014. Let’s discuss about those batsman who could be the key player in the series.
Mahendra Singh Dhoni: Indian Skipper MS Dhoni is listed on top of the squad list. Under Dhoni’s captaincy, India have won the top prize in all formats: the No.1 Test ranking for 18 months starting December 2009. MS Dhoni is arguably the most popular and definitely the most scrutinized cricketer from India. He has done so coming from the cricketing backwaters, the mining state of Jharkhand, and through a home-made batting and wicket-keeping technique, and a style of captaincy that scales the highs and lows of both conservatism and unorthodoxy. He gave average performance in the previous New Zealand series.
Virat Kohli: The Big name ‘Virat’ is included in the Indian squad for upcoming series against England. He could be the key player of this upcoming series. A typical modern-day cricketer, Virat Kohli plays his game aggressively, bares his emotions loudly in public, yet retains the element of maturity that forms an integral part of every good and great player. In the last series against kiwi team, India did not perform though Kohli played some quality innings in the last series. England pitch suits Virat well. He has the potential to explode in the series. Let’s see if he can extract his true talent in this series or not. He hit two ton in previous series against New Zealand. He played total 24 matches in his career.
Sikhar Dhawan: Shikhar Dhawan stunned all observers, and Australia, when he stroked his way to the fastest Test century by a debutant. That debut, in Mohali in 2012-13, came to Dhawan in his ninth year of first-class cricket after he had been written off by almost everybody, not least because India’s opening combination had been fixed to the most prolific combination in their Test history. He played ordinary in the last series against New Zealand. This lefty batsman could be the star player of the upcoming England series though he is not in the form recently.
Cheteshwar pujara: Pujara made his Under-19 Test debut for India against England in 2005. Opening the innings, he scored 211 runs to help India win by an innings and 137 runs. He was also picked in the Indian squad for the 2006 Under-19 Cricket World Cup after scoring three fifties in four innings of the Afro-Asia Under-19 Cup. Cheteshwar Pujara’s batting is a throwback to eras gone by, not so much in technique – he is unusually bottom-handed for someone who pays his bills through Test cricket – as in temperament. He could be the key player of this upcoming event series against England.
Gautam Gambhir: He could be more aggressive than Virender Sehwag, played the kind of back-to-the-wall innings that would do Rahul Dravid and VVS Laxman proud, and accumulated without taking any risks, much like Sachin Tendulkar has been doing in the last quarter of his career. He showed his class in last ipl7. He could play some master strokes and explode in the upcoming England test series.
