Srikkanth Reprimanded Rohit Sharma, And Said- Don't Spoil A Player Like Suryakumar Yadav
Rohit Sharma's experiment has been unsuccessful for the last two matches, while Ishan Kishan is also sitting on the bench continuously.
In the absence of Indian captain KL Rahul, he is trying as an opener in the ongoing T20I series against West Indies. In the last two matches, he is opening with Rohit Sharma against West Indies, but no very good result has come out. Not only this, Suryakumar Yadav has not batted very well in both these matches. Although Rohit Sharma had tried Rishabh Pant as his partner against England before Suryakumar Yadav, this time against West Indies he surprised completely.
Rohit Sharma's experiment has been unsuccessful for the last two matches, while Ishan Kishan is also sitting on the bench continuously. Now the former India opener batsman Srikkanth has been furious about the experiment the captain is doing with Suryakumar Yadav. He clearly believes that Suryakumar should bat at number four in T20 cricket. Srikanth said on Fancode's chat that Suryakumar Yadav is a great player at number four and he should bat at number four in the T20 World Cup too. If you want someone else to open then you drop Shreyas Iyer and choose Ishan Kishan.
He further said that what I am trying to say is very simple. Don't spoil a cricketer like Suryakumar Yadav. Please don't do this and I will tell you what will happen, after a couple of failures he will lose his confidence because cricket is a game of confidence. Srikanth said that Suryakumar will definitely be selected in the T20 World Cup squad and because of this he believes that experimenting with Suryakumar in this way will make him lose his confidence and it will not be good for India. He further said that if you want to use Pant as an opener batsman for some matches, then give him at least five chances.
