ODI WC 2023: Everyone’s eyes are fixed on the Indian team regarding the ODI World Cup to be played at the end of the year 2023. In fact, this time the World Cup is to be held in India only, and looking at the domestic situation, everyone is expected to repeat the history of 2011 from Team India. However, first the team will have to remove its flaws regarding that, in which a player in the middle order will get a chance to replace Rishabh Pant.
In front of Team India, 2 names are at the forefront as an alternative to Rishabh Pant, in which one is KL Rahul and the other is Sanju Samson. The performance of both these players in the middle order has been better so far. KL Rahul may have been seen struggling with his form in the Test format, but in ODIs, his bat has so far appeared to be speaking in a much better way.
KL Rahul has batted at number 5 position 16 times in his ODI career so far, scoring 658 runs at an average of 50. During this, 6 half-centuries and 1 century innings have also been seen with the bat of KL. In the last overs, KL Rahul has been seen scoring runs very fast for the team, in which Rahul’s strike rate of 162.71 has been seen in the last 10 overs.
Sanju Samson also has better record at number 5 position so far
Sanju Samson may not have been able to fully capitalize on the opportunities he got in the limited overs format so far, but despite this he has proved himself to be a better middle-order batsman in his short ODI career so far. Sanju has batted at number-5 position in 5 innings out of 11 ODIs played so far. During this, Sanju has scored 104 runs at an average of 52. At the same time, Sanju’s average of 66 in ODI format has also been seen so far.
