“Kohli’s Batting Strategy: 2023 World Cup Lessons from Tendulkar”


In 2019, while the World Cup was being held in Britain, former India head coach Ravi Shastri investigated the idea and acknowledged that he had important meetings with then-boss selector MSK Prasad. And even though he finally decided against it, he said something similar last week as India prepared for the Asia Cup, which would be followed by the 2023 ODI World Cup. Even India’s captain Rohit Sharma said that the team has struggled to find a better replacement since Yuvraj Singh because of the No. 4 dilemma, thus Shastri believes Virat Kohli should be able to handle the position. But as two cricket experts presented Shastri with a ferocious Sachin Tendulkar update from the 2007 World Cup, the concept was quickly put to rest.

Sanjay Manjrekar, a former cricketer for India, stated on Monday that the “notable” player appears to have become the “substitute” in the midst of experts trying to investigate fitting other options like Ishan Kishan in the setup. Shastri had proposed moving Kohli down to No. 4 in the batting order.

Shastri’s opinion was supported by former Australia cricketer Tom Surly, who was significant for a similar board, but Manjrekar hurried to remind Shastri about the Sachin incident from a long time ago. In any case, he gave Kohli the option to bat at No. 4 in what may very well be his final World Cup participation if the management so wish.

“Indian cricket also has a societal problem. When the team was selected for the 2007 World Cup, Rahul Dravid and Greg Chappell’s executives decided to place Sachin Tendulkar at No. 4 rather than at the start because they already had players like Virender Sehwag and others at the top of the list. However, that escalated into a major argument. So, whether Kohli needs to bat at No. 4 is entirely up to the distinguished player. Although it seems like a very simple setup, Kohli is concerned,” .
