Top 5 Explosive Backup Batsmen Option With India

The Indian national cricket team is blessed with numerous talents in all the departments. We’ve destructive batsmen and some lethal bowlers in the squad but apart from that we also got talented backup players who are match-winners and can win Indian team match single-handedly. We’ve recently seen in the second T20 vs England how explosive batsmen Ishan Kishan can be. Well, he’s definitely our future. So we’ve made a list of players who cab be our back up options in case someone is injured or completely out of form.

Here’s 5 Explosive Backup Batsmen Options With India

5. Ishan Kishan

India and Jharkhand’s wicketkeeper-batsman Ishan Kishan has been playing under the leadership of Rohit Sharma since IPL 2018. He has played a lot of cricket under Rohit’s captaincy. Ishan has learned the art of playing fearlessly from Rohit and once Ishan starts to connect well there is no stopping him. He will be a good opening or 1 down back up option for India.

with the nearing ICC event, this stalwart is highly anticipated to join the Indian team as a reserved second opener who could flexibly also accommodate himself if there’s an opening in the middle-order batting

4. Sanju Samson

Sanju Samson also now being the skipper of the RR side. Often in cricket, captaincy along with responsibly has brought out the best from some player’s game. Such can be a scenario only if Sanju Samson bats with a lot more accountability rather than falling prey to his impaired shot selection.

Sanju Samson takes some time in the start but when he starts connecting, there’s no stopping him. He can be a great no.4 option for India in the upcoming T20I world cup.

3. Mohammed Azharuddeen

Mohammed Azharuddeen smashed a 37-ball ton during a 54-ball 137 against Mumbai. The one blow that resonated the most was a Rohit Sharma-like flick off the hips, a shot that needs a sharp eye and perfect timing. He has the likes of great batsmen. Azharuddeen was then bough by RCB in the 2021 IPL edition and there are very good chances that he might partner with D Padikkal in the playing XI.

If this new RCB lad continues to bat with similar firepower, then skipper Kohli might get tempted to add him as a reserve if there comes a need. Ever since Azaruddeen broke into the Kerala squad six seasons ago, he has been dubbed as “Azhar in the making” representing Mohammed Azharuddeen.

2.  Shubhman Gill

The elegant batsman has proven to be a rock for Kolkata Knight Riders at the top. We’ve already seen him playing in Test cricket now and he has all the quality to be a top batsman. If India needs someone who can capitalise the innings from one end then Shubhman Gill can be the one.

The 21-year-old has continuously been the one shouldering the responsibilities for KKR with other players failing to hold onto their wickets. He scored 444 runs this season and it feels like that it’s just a matter of time before he becomes an established name in world cricket.

1. Suryakumar Yadav

You’ve got to feel for Suryakumar Yadav. After finally getting to make his India debut in the second T20I against England on Sunday, the batsman was left out of the Playing XI for the third match of the series.

A top-class explosive batsmen and too good a cricketer not to be in India’s playing XI but then there are so much talent and depth in Indian batting that who do you drop is the big question. India seriously needs to find a place for this top batsmen as he can be a great addition to the team.
