Brad Hogg said that I don’t think Ishan Kishan can bat lower down the order. I think he is predominantly an opener.
Brad Hogg on India’s No. 4
“If they’re (Iyer and Rahul) not fit, we need a keeper in this team. I don’t think Ishan Kishan can bat lower down the order. I think he is predominantly an opener. If they open with Kishan and Rohit Sharma, I would have Tilak Varma coming in at No. 4. He has hardly played any one-day cricket. But the way he has operated in T20 cricket shows that he has got the goods for any situation,”. Said Brad Hogg on Instagram
He further said that
“If they go with Gill and Rohit Sharma at the top of the order with Sanju Samson at No. 4 as the Indian keeper going into that World Cup. I think he can offer something substantial in that position”,. Brad Hogg finishes off.
According to a few reports, it is likely that Tilak Varma might be a dark horse for the Indian team in the Middle order. However, there are videos of Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul playing a practice match at NCA in Bangalore. The team for the Asia Cup is going to be selected on August 20.
