Suryakumar Yadav won’t get into the playing XI in the first ODI, feels VVS Laxman | Cricket News – Times of India

MUMBAI: Ahead of the first ODI in opposition to England, former India batsman VVS Laxman feels that in-form Suryakumar Yadav could not discover a place in the playing XI for the opening 50-over recreation on Tuesday as there are others who’ve carried out exceedingly nicely in the format in latest occasions.
Suryakumar made his debut in the lately concluded T20I collection in opposition to England which India gained 3-2 after beating the guests by eight runs in the fifth T20I. The proper-handed swashbuckling batsman performed three video games and hit 57 and 32 in the fourth and closing recreation respectively. In the second T20I, the debutant didn’t get an opportunity to bat.
Speaking on Star Sports present Cricket Connected Laxman mentioned, “I actually don’t know whether he will get to play in the playing XI and that’s the depth in this Indian team. Whether you take Test, one-day or T20I cricket, Suryakumar Yadav doesn’t get into the playing XI just because there are others who have performed exceedingly well in international cricket. Yes, he’s in form, but I would definitely go with players, who have shown that consistency in international cricket. So, for me, he won’t get into the playing XI in the first ODI.”
When requested to select between Suryakumar and Shreyas Iyer, the former batsman mentioned he’ll go together with the latter for the quantity six function as he has scored runs constantly in the previous.
“I think it is very difficult to just choose one among both, Suryakumar Yadav and Shreyas Iyer, because what really interests me was the way Shreyas Iyer batted at No. 6. He batted with authority, conviction and just understood the situation and played his shots right from the word go. Because we know that he is ideally suited for No. 4. He has done so well in both, one-dayers and T20Is in that position, but for the first time I have seen him bat at No. 6, and he didn’t disappoint anyone,” Laxman mentioned.
“Suryakumar Yadav is also someone who has got the talent, but with experience, I feel Shreyas Iyer will be my pick ahead of Suryakumar Yadav. Because we just can’t rely on one or two innings and we cannot really discount Shreyas Iyer’s performances in international cricket. Yes, Suryakumar Yadav has done really well for Mumbai Indians in the IPL, but Shreyas Iyer has been very consistent in whatever opportunities he got at the highest level. So, I will always choose Shreyas Iyer to do that role,” he added.
The three-match ODI collection between India and England will start at the Maharashtra Cricket Association Stadium, Pune on Tuesday.
