VVS Laxman said, Suryakumar Yadav will not get a place in the first ODI playing XI
Former India batsman VVS Laxman believes that Suryakumar Yadav will fail to form an area within the playing XI of the primary ODI between India and England. Laxman said that even though he is in excellent form, there are many other players who have consistently performed well in this 50-over format.
Suryakumar Yadav won everyone’s heart with his batting in the T20 series played against England. The Mumbai batsman hit a long six off Joffre Archer on the very first ball of his international career. The first ODI between India and England will be played at the MCA Cricket Stadium in Pune on 23 March (Tuesday).
Akash Chopra said, Shikhar Dhawan should open with Rohit Sharma in the ODI series
Akash Chopra picked Iyer within the ODI between Suryakumar and Shreyas Iyer. Explaining the rationale for this, he said, ‘I think it’s very difficult to settle on between the 2 because the thing that impressed me was the way Shreyas Iyer came to the amount six-position and batting with the Authority.
And he understood the state of the match and put up shorts from the beginning. Because we know that he is the perfect batsman for number four. He has performed very well in both ODIs and T20s at this position, but I saw him batting at number six for the first time and he did not disappoint. Suryakumar Yadav also has talent, but with experience, I will be able to peak Shreyas Iyer above Suryakumar Yadav.
