New Delhi: India lost by 8 wickets in the third T20 match against England. With this loss, India is now 1-2 behind in the 5-game series. Suryakumar Yadav, who made his debut in Game 2 of this series, did not get a place in the squad in Game 3. Team captain Virat Kohli is criticized for the move. Meanwhile, former player and incumbent Gautam Gambhir also expressed his anger at not giving Suryakumar a place in the squad.
Gambhir raised big questions
Gautam Gambhir (Gautam Gambhir) raised big questions about the squad’s management and captain Virat Kohli after Suryakumar Yadav was left out of the third game. Speaking to ESPN Cricinfo, Gambhir said: “I am surprised by this decision. Seven months before the World Cup, he starts preparations for the World Cup and maybe after the World Cup, he will start preparing for the next World Cup. Regardless, your shape matters.
He said: “Suppose there was a problem within the team due to some kind of injury. What have you seen Suryakumar do internationally? Hopefully there is no injury, but if that happens a player will have to beat at numbers four and five. Which player do you have to replace Shreyas Iyer?
‘Give three to four matches’
Gambhir (Gautam Gambhir) added that you watch people who match your setup. At least give them a three to four game chance and then see where they are. If you’ve picked someone, give them a chance and then rate what they can offer the team in the future. You try the same players that we have been watching for several years.
Such unfortunate behavior
Gambhir (Gautam Gambhir) stated that such behavior is wrong. He said, “If a player does well in the IPL then you will start talking about him. It is sad. If you are starting out, give it at least 3-4 matches. Ishaan Kishan started the sleeves with a brilliant half century and you sent it to number three. It’s not about supporting a player.
Suryakumar didn’t have a chance to beat in a first match
Suryakumar Yadav, who made his debut in Game 2 of the series, didn’t have a chance to beat. In this game, India had a goal of 165 points, which the team reached by losing just 3 wickets. Captain Virat Kohli scored 73 unbeaten points in this game.
