Sachin’s Big Statement About Dhoni Before the World Cup, Say – Bat at this Number

Published

on

Prior to the ICC Cricket World Cup, Master Blaster Sachin Tendulkar has made a big statement about Team India’s wicket-keeper batsman Mahendra Singh Dhoni. To be told the truth, his statement can prove to be a solution to the debate over not only the captain Kohli but the batting order of Dhoni.

Let us tell you that there has been discussion about Dhoni’s batting order for a long time. Some have to admit that they should come up and some believe that playing Dhoni’s finisher can prove to be beneficial for the team. While Sachin Tendulkar has made a big statement about them.

Sachin Says

Sachin Tendulkar said, “My personal opinion is that Dhoni should bat on number 5. Although I still do not know how the combination of India’s World Cup 2019 will be. But if Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma start the innings and Virat Kohli comes in number three then any player came in number four. Yes, Dhoni should get off to bat at number-5 and it can prove to be beneficial for the team. ”

Sachin further said, “After Dhoni, the power hitter Hardik Pandya should come for batting. In this way, you can use experienced batsmen and Dhoni can take the match to the end. At the same time, you can bat explosives with hearty.”

The big statement on Dhawan is that Shikhar Dhawan is the only left hand batsman in the current team India, and Tendulkar also kept his uncomfortable opinion about starting the innings.

Sachin said, “Yes, it should be so. Left and right handlers are always good combination of batsmen. It is difficult to adjust the line and length to the bowlers of the opposing team.”

Sachin Bets:

Sachin Tendulkar has given a clear answer to his three semi-final teams for the World Cup 2019, then he has bet on two teams for the fourth position. According to Sachin, India, England and Australia should reach the semi-finals. Apart from this, one team from New Zealand and Pakistan can reach the semi-finals.

India vs Pakistan ICC World Cup 2019 Match Summary and Highlights

And it’s all over! Huge win for India, and massively disappointing result for Pakistan.

India played to a seriously high standard today.

Their batsmen were marvellous, Rohit’s 140 complemented by Kohl’s 77 and Rahul’s 57, while the bowling performance was extremely promising. Kuldeep dismissed Fakhar (62) and Babar (48) when they were both set, before Hardik struck twice in as many balls to all-but secure victory for his side.

For Pakistan, winning the remainder of their matches is imperative now, whereas India are sitting pretty after an unbeaten start to the tournament.

ICC World Cup 2019 Sri Lanka vs Australia Match 20th Preview and Prediction

Welcome to Ydraft! This is 20th match of the ICC Men’s Cricket World Cup 2019 as Sri Lanka take on Australia at The Oval in London. Having had their last two matches washed out, Sri Lanka will be keen to get out on the field, while Australia will be just as keen given their good form. They’ve won three out of their four matches and another win will see them surge to the top of the points table.

Squads

Sri Lanka Australia
Dimuth Karunaratne  (C) Aaron Finch  (C)
Dhananjaya de Silva Jason Behrendorff
Avishka Fernando Alex Carey
Suranga Lakmal Nathan Coulter-Nile
Lasith Malinga Pat Cummins
Angelo Mathews Usman Khawaja
Kusal Mendis Nathan Lyon

Kusal Perera Glenn Maxwell
Thisara Perera Kane Richardson
Nuwan Pradeep Steve Smith
Milinda Siriwardana Mitchell Starc
Lahiru Thirimanne Marcus Stoinis
Isuru Udana David Warner
Jeffrey Vandersay Adam Zampa

 

Sri Lanka would finally get to play a game after two washouts but they are up against defending champions Australia who’ll want to win this one and reach the top of the table. Match would be played at Oval, a rare ground for Sri Lanka with recent happy memories as they defeated India here in the Champions Trophy 2017. Could they stage another upset?
