3 teams with the best No.4 batsman for IPL 2024

No.4 is an important role in a T20 batting line-up. This player must be able to take on the spinners and should also leave the squad in a good position for the death overs. Hence, along with temperament, this batter must also have good all-round skills with the bat. On that note, here, we take a look at the list of teams with the best No.4 batsman for the upcoming season of IPL 2024.

Note: The other No.4 batters considered are Aiden Markram, Liam Livingstone, Riyan Parag, Rishabh Pant, Nitish Rana, Kane Williamson and Shivam Dube.

1) Mumbai Indians – Suryakumar Yadav

Based on the last campaign, MI could opt for SKY at No.4. Anyways, for India, as well, he is likely to don this role and it is in the best interest that he operates at No.4.


He is arguably the best T20 batter right now. SKY has the ability to take on various types of bowling. His strength lies in making use of all the areas of the park. MI will be reliant on him to take them to the playoffs of IPL 2024.

2) Royal Challengers Bangalore – Glenn Maxwell

RCB is one of the teams with the best No.4 batsman for IPL 2024. The last few years have been terrific for Maxwell, both at IPL and also as an Aussie cricketer.

Maxwell is destructive against spin. The pitch at Chinnaswamy also aids his skills. Against the pacers, too, he has improved in recent times. He will be the most important batter for RCB in IPL 2024.


3) Lucknow Super Giants – Nicholas Pooran

Nicholas Pooran, who was recently appointed as the vice-captain of the franchise, is likely to operate at No.4. KL Rahul might play at No.4 and then Marcus Stoinis at No.6.

Pooran is an excellent player of spin. On his day, it would not be a surprise if he gets a 18-ball fifty. Against medium-pace, as well, Pooran is very strong. Hence, he is on this list.
