Former Indian batsman Mohammad Kaif believes that the Indian team is still unsure about their middle order. Indian team has lost the 3-match ODI series against England 2-1. One of the biggest problems that got exposed in the series is the inconsistency of the Indian middle order.

India in recent times have tried as much as 7 different players in recent times such as KL Rahul, Ajunkya Rahane, Kedar Jadhav, Manish Pandey, Shreyas Iyer, Dinesh Karthik and Suresh Raina for the two middle over slots. But even after that, the issue of the stable middle order remains the same as ever.

Mohammad Kaif pointed to the problems of the team

Mohammad Kaif took to Twitter and posted a couple of tweets in which he pointed out how the unstable middle order could be a problem for the ODI team. “India have experimented with 7 players KL Rahul, Rahane, Kedar Jadhav, Manish Pandey, Shreyas Iyer, Karthik, Raina for the two middle over slots. Don’t seem to have still settled on both positions. Feel Krunal and Rayudu might get a look in. Who has been your best pick? #ENGvIND”, writes Mohammad Kaif.

The former right-handed batsman also pointed out that the team needs to do a lot of thinking before the next year’s World Cup. “India were outplayed and have a lot of thinking to do before the World cup. Hope this defeat serves as a blessing in disguise and they are able to arrive at a settled combination. Congratulations to England. #ENGvIND”, further tweets Mohammad Kaif who is best remembered for the innings of 87 not out he played in the Natwest Final in 2002.

Although India have lost the series, this 2-1 defeat against England could well be a blessing in a disguise. The series has already given India a lot of food for thought and team India would surely like to eliminate these problems before the ICC 2019 World Cup.
