The Indian cricket team has been struggling to find permanent players for the middle-order in limited overs cricket as the blue shirts have experimented with numerous players to provide support to the top order but none of them has stuck around.
Indian skipper Virat Kohli has come out in defence of his batsmen as he said that the middle order would get better once it gets consistent opportunities to bat instead of waiting it out in the dressing room due to overpowering performances by the top order.
"It's a very subjective and situation-based thing. Sometimes you say the top order is the best in the world, and the middle order doesn't get opportunities. When they get one or two opportunities we judge them. I don't understand how to strike the balance. As a team we try to get the strongest XI on the field and perform according to the situation," he said.
