With Pat Cummins silencing the Ahmedabad crowd on Sunday night with the prized wicket of Kohli, Suryakumar Yadav was speculated to stroll in at No. 6. That is what the line-up had been for India all through the competitors. But the workforce administration backed a left-handed batter in Ravindra Jadeja to go forward of Suryakumar, who has been picked as a specialist batter since Hardik Pandya was dominated out of the event final month.
Speaking to Sportskeeda, Gambhir and Akram admitted that they had been bothy left shocked on the transfer.

The former India opener additional questioned if the workforce administration was in any respect ever assured about Suryakumar’s skills in ODI cricket as a No. 6 batter. Gambhir additionally felt had Suryakumar been despatched at No. 6 he may have gone about together with his pure aggressive cricket quite than go on a defensive mode figuring out that there are not any batters left within the line-up.
“Imagine if KL Rahul as batting with a sure temp with Kohli then it makes much more sense to despatched Suryakumar in and ask him to play aggressive cricket, play his pure cricket since you nonetheless have Jadeja. It may be very simple to say for an knowledgeable to say that Suryakumar struggled. But the participant’s mindset is that if he will get out the subsequent batters are Mohammed Shami, Jasprit Bumrah, Siraj and Kuldeep. However, if he is aware of that the subsequent batsman in is Jadeja then he would have had a special mindset. If you weren’t assured in Suryakumar at No. 6 then you definitely may as effectively ought to have picked another person,” he mentioned.
