Former India captain Sourav Ganguly stated that KL Rahul will be under pressure to keep his spot as India’s designated No.4 in ODIs. Ganguly named two cricketers who will push Rahul for that No. 4 spot in the middle order. The former India captain who is currently the president of Cricket Association of Bengal identified Shreyas Iyer and Manish Pandey as the probable contenders for India’s No.4 spot, which has given a lot of headache to the team management in the last couple of years.
Rahul recently lost his spot in the Indian Test side due to lack of consistency. “With Rohit and Shikhar at the top as the best possible opening pair, KL Rahul will be pushed. He has lost his place in Test cricket due to indifferent form and the likes of Shreyas and Manish Pandey will keep him on his toes if he wants to hold onto the No. 4 slot,” Ganguly wrote in his column for The Times of India.
