Srinagar, May 23: India’s cricket icon, Sachin Tendulkar on Wednesday said that MS Dhoni should bat at number five in the World Cup.
“My personal opinion is Dhoni should be batting five. I still don’t know what the team combination would be, but if you are going Rohit and Shikhar as openers, to Virat (Kohli) at number 3 and whoever at number 4 then Dhoni could be No. 5,” ESPN Cricinfo quoted Tendulkar, as saying.
Dhoni has recently batted at multiple batting positions, depending upon the situation. Now, there are several speculations about where he is going to bat in the World Cup.
Tendulkar also mentioned that later ‘explosive’ Pandya can play the finisher’s role,
“Then Hardik Pandya, an explosive player, follows them. That way the experienced batsmen are well spaced out and Dhoni can stretch the game towards the end where he himself can be explosive along with Hardik,” he added.
