IND vs WI Surya Kumar Yadav: Team India is currently going through a phase of experimentation. Asia Cup 2022 is about to come and now T20 World Cup 2022 is also about three months away. Even after this, it is not yet sure which player will play at which number. In Team India, the captain is changing, the opener is also not fixed. Two matches of the T20 series being played between India and West Indies have been played and in both the matches, Surya Kumar Yadav has opened with captain Rohit Sharma. Why Surya Kumar Yadav is being opened is not clear yet. Meanwhile, former Team India legend Kris Srikkanth has flared up. He has given a big and important statement about Surya Kumar Yadav.
Srikkanth said, Surya Kumar Yadav is the best batsman of number four
India vs West Indies live matches are being broadcast on fan code. Talking to Fan Code, Kris Srikkanth said that Surya Kumar Yadav is the best batsman at number four. He should bat at number four in the T20 World Cup. Then why do you want to open with him in this series. He said that if you want, you can give Ishan Kishan a chance in the playing XI by taking Shreyas Iyer out and get him to open. He said that I am trying to say that do not spoil a player like Surya Kumar Yadav. Srikanth says I will tell you what will happen. When Surya Kumar Yadav does not score runs in a couple of matches, he will lose his confidence, it is a game of confidence. Srikkanth also said that today you should have opened with Rishabh Pant. If you are planning to get Rishabh Pant to open, then get him opened in at least five matches.
The third match of the series will be played today
Let us inform that after the first match of the series, Surya Kumar Yadav could not play a big innings even in the second match. In the first match, he still played an innings of 24 runs off 16 balls, but in the second match he could only score 11 runs in six balls and got out. At the same time, the second opener and captain Rohit Sharma returned to the pavilion after getting out on the very first ball. Both the openers failed in the second match, which was the reason why Team India failed to hang a big score in this match. However, the series is still tied at 1.1 with three more matches to be played. It has to be seen whether captain Rohit Sharma will make some changes in the playing XI when he takes to the field to toss for the third match. Also it will be interesting to see whether Surya Kumar Yadav will open even today.
