India, carrying a muscular squad, will enter the ICC Cricket World Cup 2019 tournament with an aim to win their third World Cup title. Looking at the squad of men in blue and their performances in last few years definitely puts India in a strong position to steal the thunder of the event.
With top three batting spots being sealed, a lot of discussion has been going around the batting position of the veteran cricketer Mahendra Singh Dhoni. Former Indian cricketer Sachin Tendulkar also joined the debate by sharing his two cents on the subject.
Considering the wicket-keeper batsman’s immense experience and his ability to handle pressure, the 46-year old wishes to see Dhoni batting at 5 during the mega-event. The Mumbai born is of the view that Dhoni is a flexible individual who can alter his approach as per the need of the hour and batting at 5 will allow him to control the game.
“My personal opinion is that Dhoni should be batting at 5. I still don’t know what the team combination would be, but if you are going Rohit (Sharma) and Shikhar (Dhawan) as openers, to Virat (Kohli) at number 3 and whoever at number 4 then Dhoni could be 5,” opined by the greatest batsman produced by the Indian soil.
