Raina’s mind-set towards the series cricket India vs South Africa

Published by : Ana on september 25, 2015

Suresh Raina stated in his recent interview that he wants Mahendra Singh Dhoni to bat at no 4 in the India vs South Africa cricket live match series. The left-handed batsman is ready to bat at any position in the upcoming series against South Africa. Raina has batted for team India on different positions including the opening spot.

Raina has bookmarked his place in the Indian cricket team by tremendous performances in various matches and batting position has never been the point of issue for him. Even though, he is an energetic batsman but sometimes manages to control the game by patience.

The forthcoming series between India vs South Africa is going to start from 2nd October in various cities of India. South Africa is a prominent team and all set to Arrive in India with an entire preparation to beat the opponent team. This is the reason why team India is in no mood to take risks for the next series of ODIs, T20s and tests against South Africa.

According to BCCI’s official website, “No. 5 and 6 are not easy positions to bat at; you go out there and have to score 15 runs in five balls or 50 in 20 balls. At home I might not get a chance to bat, might get 10-15 overs or only 10 balls. But I am prepared for it. I know what my role is. I have batted everywhere except the opening positions, so I know how to bat where.”

“I enjoy that responsibility. Dhoni knows my game inside out and I would be happy to play whatever role he deems is right for me. If he decides to bat at 4 regularly, it will only benefit the team.” He added, “It will make life easier for the batsmen to follow. He can build the innings with the top-order and accelerate with the lower-middle order.”

The reports stated that Virat Kohli will at 3rd position. Though, there are no fixed betting positions in the team for any player but Raina is emphasizing on Dhoni’s batting at the 4th position because it seems to be advantageous for other batsmen too.

It would be interesting to see if team India succeeds in ruling over India vs South Africa cricket live score card.
