The Indian cricket team has traveled to Bangladesh to play 3 ODIs and 2 Tests. The first ODI between India and Bangladesh will be played in Mirpur today (Sunday). Captain Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and Lokesh Rahul, who were rested in the recent New Zealand series, are back in the Indian team.
The team is even stronger as the top players are back. Captain Rohit Sharma will be in a quandary to choose his playing eleven for the Indian team as the World Cup series approaches. Captain Rohit Sharma, Shikhar Dhawan or Rahul will be the openers.
Kohli will be in the 3rd row. As far as the middle order is concerned, many players in the Indian team are fighting hard to secure a place. Shreyas Iyer, Suryakumar Yadav, Rishabh Pant and Sanju Samson are in fierce competition for the 4th and 5th row.
In this case, Indian player Dinesh Karthik has said that this player is the right one to play in the 5th row in the Indian team. Speaking about this, Dinesh Karthik said,
KL Rahul would be an excellent choice for a middle order batsman. The Indian team is yet to choose a player to play in the 5th row. I think there will be a tough competition between Rishabh Pant and Rahul for that spot. For me, I think Rahul will play in that position. Rahul will be the best middle-order batsman for the 50-over World Cup.
This is what he said.
