Rohit will make Dhoni bat at #4 i guess. Dhoni right now if has to play till worldcup then should only play at #4 the low he bats the more trouble we will have.

I was of that opinion as well earlier but last 2 series has confirmed he has no place in the side even at 4.He doesn't take the initiative and still plays the second fiddle even in an inexperienced middle order.

Unless there is a drastic change in approach,he is a liability in the batting order.

He will loose match if he comes in at 40-42 over and we need quick runs. At #4 he can atleast come and play 80-90 strike rate innings of 40 - 50 consistently.

That's a big if at the moment,I am not uncertain about runs,he ll score runs but unsure about the strike rate,which is always on the wrong side these days.

he should bat at 8 and only get to bat in 50th over where he has no option but to throw his bat around.

I don't want him in xi but he is playing worldcup for sure. So best option is to make him bat up and get max of runs he can score at fine strike rate. The low he bats will create trouble for others as well.

he scores at a low SR even up the order.

I think it'll be the opposite,after getting a thrashing from pak (maybe again in the final) ,it'll enhance those horrible memories .

indian odi team is very much dependent on kohli and we have a horrible middle order which is likely to collapse against good attacks 

 

The wickets in ODI tournaments are batsmen friendly, so i do not see the same problem there.
