At the same time, Rahul came to bat at Number 5 against Sri Lanka and showed by playing a sensible innings that he would prove to be a trump card for the Indian team in the middle order.

Gambhir said during the conversation, "Rahul has proved himself. He is now going to play the role of wicketkeeper batsman in the World Cup and at the same time Rahul will bat at Number 4. Although it is difficult to say who will bat at Number 5 right now, but according to me, Shreyas Iyer and Jadeja deserve to bat on this batting order. However, Gambhir further said that "Hardik can also bat at Number 5, but now the issue of Number 4 has been resolved and Rahul will be seen playing as a wicketkeeper batsman in the World Cup too."
