Shane Warne believes that current Indian batting lineup is not the best
Shane Warne’s views are highly regarded in the cricket fraternity. A legend in his craft, Warne has taken 700 plus test wickets and bowled to some of the best batsmen of his era.
In his latest views on the current Indian team, Warne feels that the current batting lineup of India is good but not the best ever. He rates Kohli and Rohit as the two outstanding players of the current generation but rates the fab 5 of Virender Sehwag, Rahul Dravid, Sachin Tendulkar, VVS Laxman and Sourav Ganguly as the best and much ahead than the current Indian batting group. Warne has bowled a lot against that lineup and had his struggles, especially in India.
“Their batting is nowhere near as strong as Dravid, Ganguly, Laxman, Tendulkar, Sehwag. Virat Kohli is one of the best batsmen on the planet, if not the best across all forms, but when you see that top five of Sehwag, Ganguly, Dravid, Laxman, Tendulkar, that isn’t bad. I don’t think you can say that it’s the best batting Indian side,” Warne said
Warne added that Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma are the 2 standout players in the current group and Pant is a superstar in the making.
However, Warne said that it’s the collective strength of the Indian pace attack which has taken the current team to such great heights and achieved so many overseas wins in recent times
