Indian Team’s Middle Order: ODI World Cup 2023 will be played in the hosting of India. It seems very difficult for the host India to choose the perfect team in the World Cup. The Men in Blue have a number of options for the middle order. It will not be so easy for BCCI to choose a balanced team. Team India has KL Rahul, Shreyas Iyer, Sanju Samson and Suryakumar Yadav for the middle order.
Virat Kohli will bat at number three for Team India in the World Cup. At the same time, all-rounder Hardik Pandya will appear in the team as a finisher. KL Rahul can be selected as wicketkeeper for the World Cup, while Sanju Samson is also involved in this race. Sanju’s figures in ODIs are very good. He has scored 330 runs in 10 innings of 50 over format at an average of 66 and a strike rate of 104.
At the same time, Samson has a lot of ability to play spin along with pace. The tournament being in India and the pitches here prove to be very helpful for spin bowling. At the same time, choosing Shreyas Iyer and Suryakumar Yadav in the middle order in front of the team will also be a headache.
Iyer hit in ODI, Surya could not do anything special
These days, Shreyas Iyer, who is running out of the team due to his injury, has so far appeared in good form in ODIs for India. Iyer has so far scored runs at an average of 46.6 and a strike rate of around 100 in the 50-over game. Two centuries are also registered in the name of the batsman in ODIs.
On the other hand, Suryakumar Yadav, who batted fast in the second T20, has not been able to do anything special in ODIs so far. Surya has played 23 ODIs so far. While batting in 21 innings of these matches, he has scored just 433 runs at an average of 24.05. Only two half-centuries have come out of his bat.
