West Indies VS India ODI: India returns to ODI a month after Old Trafford heartbreak
After winning T20 series against West Indies, India is all set to lock horns against the Windies in a three-match ODI series. Time doesn’t wait for anyone in the modern cricket calendar and Virat Kohli would be all geared up for his 1st team in Guyana. They will return in the ODI format a month after Old Trafford heartbreak.
Here are 4 things that on which Indian Team should improve
1.The never-ending debacle of Number 4
India will address its core problems in the series. Number 4 is still a headache for team management. Manish Pandey, Shreyas Iyer, KL Rahul or Risabh Pant are the most likely options for the men in blue. India experimented with Ambai Rayudu earlier which didn’t pay off.
2.Stability for KL Rahul
Shoaib Akhtar once said that he will never let KL Rahul sit on the bench and will always keep him in playing eleven. We always talk about a player not being bigger than a team, but KL Rahul must be used in team productivity, otherwise, he will become a loose end. Sometimes he is fixed for number 4, and sometimes, he becomes the back-up opener for the team. Stability is needed to make a player. Rohit Sharma is a great example of it.
3. Finding the finisher
MS Dhoni who has been finishing games for India for more than 16 years might be ending his services soon. The team will require another finisher who can replace the legendary Dhoni. Risabh Pant seems to be a perfect match but he lacks consistency. Could India develop Manish Pandey into a new finisher?
4. A new spinner
The magician Kuldeep Yadav has been out of touch since the IPL, and he wasn’t impressive in the World Cup. Yuzvendra Chahal looked good but Indian team needs to find a third spinner. Rahul Chahar or Krunal Pandya could be the deposit for India.
