At No.3 Moeen Ali is the best option. He is left-handed and can change gear at any time in the game. he can also provide a bowling option to the captain.
In the Middle-order Ambati Rayudu will play a big role at No.4 then we have the best finishers in the history of the game. Ben Stokes, MS Dhoni, and Ravindra Jadeja. They all are very dangerous batsmen and they can upset any team on their day. Also, we cannot neglect Shivam Dube who is also capable of hitting gigantic sixes.
