Bengaluru, November 11 (Language) There was some concern before the World Cup about India’s middle-order batsmen, especially KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer, but head coach Rahul Dravid on Saturday expressed happiness over the way they have performed so far. of.
Both Rahul and Iyer had made a comeback after recovering from injury. However, he performed well and strengthened the Indian batting. So far Rahul has scored 245 runs and Iyer has scored 293 runs.
“How your middle order performs in challenging situations probably determines how you perform,” Dravid told reporters on the eve of the match against Netherlands. Our top order performed exceptionally well, but I believe our middle order also played an important role.
Dravid was not worried that Rahul and Iyer’s statistics were not as attractive as those of other batsmen in the team.
He said, “You cannot judge them on the basis of statistics. This will give you only one aspect of the picture whereas his innings of 30 and 40 runs are very important. Our middle-order batsmen have played an important role whether it is Shreyas or Rahul or Suryakumar Yadav. Jaddu (Ravindra Jadeja) played an important innings in Dharamsala.
Apart from Rahul and Iyer, India was also worried about the fitness of fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah and left-arm spinner Jadeja before the World Cup, but both these players made an impact by performing brilliantly. Bumrah has taken 15 wickets in eight matches so far.
Dravid said, “A thoughtful plan was made for the return of these players. For this you also need a little luck. It was very good for us that these players came back fit just before the tournament.
