Asia Cup 2023: Who is the best at number 4 for Team India, statistics are giving answers
KL Rahul and Tilak Verma Stats: For a long time, Team India is looking for better number-4 batting. Although, 12 players were tried at this number after the World Cup 2019, but none of the batsmen lived up to the expectations. The Indian team management played bets on players like Suryakumar Yadav, Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul. Suryakumar Yadav has been a superhit in the T20 format, but failed to perform as expected in the ODI format. Now for the upcoming Asia Cup, the Indian team management has placed a bet on young batsman Tivak Verma.
These batsmen were tried at number-4…
Suryakumar Yadav has scored 511 runs at number-4 in 24 ODIs at an average of 24.3. After World Cup 2019, KL Rahul has scored the most runs in the Indian middle order. But he remained out of the Indian team for a long time due to injury. However, KL Rahul has been selected for the upcoming Asia Cup team. At the same time, Ishaan Kishan has scored 106 runs in 6 ODIs at this number. Apart from this, players like Shreyas Iyer and Sanju Samson were tried. Shreyas Iyer definitely raised hopes at number-4, but this player is constantly struggling with injury.
Tilak Verma will bat at number-4 in Asia Cup?
However, it is believed that Tilak Verma or Suryakumar Yadav can bat at number-4 in the upcoming Asia Cup. However, if KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer will be part of the playing XI, then both these players can also be tried. Significantly, the Asia Cup 2023 is starting from 30 September. However, the Indian team will play the first match of the tournament on 2 September. The match will be played between India and Pakistan on 2 September. Whereas the final match of Asia Cup 2023 will be played on 17 September.
