A look at the run-scorers list of the Indian team once again brings to the fore the fact that the so-called batting powerhouse is dependent heavily on three batsmen — Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli and K.L. Rahul. But the Indian team management has made it clear that they are not perturbed by either the trend or the scary scenario wherein all three can fail in one of the last two games of this World Cup.
With 647 runs from eight innings with five centuries, Rohit heads the list and is followed by run-machine and skipper Kohli with 442 runs with five fifties to his name. And third on the list is Rahul with 360 runs that includes a century and two fifties. Interestingly, the next man on the list is none other than ”under scanner” M.S. Dhoni with 223 runs. Clearly, the writing is on the wall and a massacre is waiting to happen, but the Indians feel otherwise.
