Whereas the Indian team is still uncertain over who will bat at no 4 position in the upcoming ICC World Cup 2019, World Cup-winning captain Kapil Dev said he feels it’s useless to fret about it in the age of T20 cricket. In T20 tournaments like Indian Premier League (IPL) 2019, teams shuffle the batting order as per the situation of the match and Dev says it seems to be the answer to India’s conundrum.
“In the age of Twenty20, it’s difficult to say who’s an opener and who’s number four,” Kapil told reporters at a promotional event for Britannia.
“The mindset these days is anybody can go and bat (at any number). Remember when (Mahendra Singh) Dhoni went before Yuvraj Singh in Mumbai?” the 60-year-old said, referring to World Cup 2011 final. Dhoni made an impromptu change in the batting order to guide India to victory.
