Tilak Varma and Sanju Samson, according to an ex-Australian spinner, will help India's No. 4 issue in the 2023 ODI World Cup

Tilak Varma and Sanju Samson, according to an ex-Australian spinner, will help India’s No. 4 issue in the 2023 ODI World Cup. Tilak Varma and Sanju Samson have been praised by the former Australia spinner Brad Hogg as the perfect candidates for the No.4 spot in India’s batting order for the 2023 ODI World Cup. The ex-Aussie chinaman believes that if Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul are unable to fully recover their fitness in a timely manner, Varma and Samson can serve as the perfect backups. Hogg emphasises the many lineup adjustments India might make while keeping in mind the wicket-keeper’s position.

We need a goalie in this team if Iyer and Rahul aren’t healthy. Ishan Kishan can’t possibly bat lower in the order, in my opinion. According to me, he is mostly an opener,” Hogg wrote on Instagram.

“Tilak Varma would enter at No. 4 if they started with Kishan and Rohit Sharma, in my opinion. He hasn’t participated in a lot of one-day cricket. But his performance in T20 cricket demonstrates that he is capable of handling any circumstance, he continued.

Varma recently made his T20I debut with the Men in Blue, and throughout his first series, the left-handed batter dazzled onlookers with some bold shots and a cool head. Varma amassed 173 runs at a strike rate of 140.65 in 5 T20Is against the West Indies, helped by a fifty-six.

Hogg continued by saying that Samson may bat at No. 4 and serve as the Men in Blue’s wicketkeeper if Shubman Gill and Rohit begin the batting.

“If they want to start Sanju Samson at No. 4 as the Indian custodian for that World Cup and start Gill and Rohit Sharma at the top of the order. I believe he can contribute significantly in that role.

Samson hasn’t been in many 50-over cricket matches for India. The talented batsman has scored 390 runs in 13 ODIs, including three half-centuries.
