Number 4 is a Crucial Position in Test Matches. Till now Sachin Tendulkar occupy this place and get lot of runs. Especailly in Test matches this place was so importance in building of the Innings. If team lost the openers wickets early. Than Great responsibility on No 3 and No 4 batsman. We have legendary Sachin on that place. India did not trouble since long time. But after retirement of Tendulkar..its difficult task for team management who will bat at no 4.
In front Crucial South African series there is much debate on this issue. Capatin Mahendra Singh Dhoni also told to reporters we will left the 4th place and bat at remaining places. But everybody had a one main choice that Virat Kohli. This Delhi young gun surely replace the sachins place. Former captain Ganguly also advised the Mangement Kohli should come at number four than Rohit Sharma will bat at 5th position.
So Mahi had decide on 6th batsman. Kohli had a temperament and commitment so he surely did well at no 4. South Africa tour will gave him much exposure to young Virat. Bouncy and swinging pitches of South Africa will test the caliber of Kohli. Not only Virat all young players will benefit from the Safari series. But less match practice will be the main concern for Indian side.
So Dhoni should be clever in team composition. One days will boosts the Indian team in front of Test series. Shikhar Dhawan, Virat Kohli, Rohit Sharma are the Key players in Safari series, Especially for Star Left Hander will be the crucial for Good starts.
