The #1 batsman in the longer format of the game in Steve Smith will take the no:3 spot followed by the Indian captain at no:4.
The middle order will be manned by Alzex Carey himself along with the fearless and ruthless Rishabh Pant. He also picked Ravindra Jadeja as the only all rounder to bat at no:7 in his team.
