The batting order of India might be taken with explosive players who can take the game away from the opposition, but Kapil Dev, 1983 winning skipper, has felt that the role of all-rounder Pathan could swing the fortunes of the team in the said event.
The legendary skipper said that Pathan can be able to turn the game for India and he’s capable in winning the matches from the losing situations of the team. He further said that as long as Pathan is at the crease, the opposing team can’t breathe easy.
Kapil said that after the T20 cricket’s advent, there’s no specific number for a batsman anymore since the T20 changed the game already. He added that anyone can bat any number. So he said that it’s better to leave it to the team captain.
