In 2011, Indian team cricket under the captaincy of M.S Dhoni scripted a fairy tale history by winning the world cup after 28 years since 1983. India had a very strong batting line up then and now after 8 years, India is once again ready to lift the trophy under the brigade of Virat Kohli.
What does the statistics say...
1. Sachin V/s Virat
2. Virendra Sehwag v/s Shikhar Dhawan
3. Gautam Gambhir v/s Rohit Sharma
Does it bring good news for this year world cup..
Talking about the top three of the current season India has one of the best batsmen in the world. Virat Kohli is currently the number one batsman as per the released ICC rankings. However, the performance of Virat in the recent IPL is a worrisome factor for team India.
Talking about the other 2 batsmen, Rohit Sharma and Shikhar Dhawan are in the top 3 batsmen. As per the released ICC rankings, Rohit Sharma holds the 2nd rank in the list while Shikhar Dhawan fails to manage its position in the Top 10.
Thus, going by the statistics, the top three batsmen look good on the card. However, the recent performances of the entire three batsmen were not extraordinary at all. While Dhawan managed to score his highest t20, he did not score well in other matches of IPL. Similarly, Rohit Sharma also failed to outshine in the IPL which of course can be problematic for team India.
