New Delhi: India suffered an 8-wicket defeat in the third T20 match against England. With this defeat, India are now behind 1-2 in the 5 match series. Suryakumar Yadav, who made his debut in the second match of this series, was not given a place in the team in the third match. Team captain Virat Kohli is being criticized for this decision. Meanwhile, former player and sitting MP Gautam Gambhir has also expressed anger over not giving Suryakumar a place in the team.
Gambhir raised big questions
After Suryakumar Yadav was not given a place in the third match, Gautam Gambhir (Gautam Gambhir) has raised big questions over team management and captain Virat Kohli. Speaking to ESPN Cricinfo, Gambhir said, ‘I am surprised by this decision. Seven months before the World Cup, he is starting preparations for the World Cup and maybe after the World Cup, he will start preparing for the next World Cup. It doesn’t matter, your form matters. ‘
He said, ‘Suppose if there was a problem inside the team due to some kind of injury. What did you see Suryakumar doing at international level? I hope there is no injury, but if it happens, someone will have to bat at number four and five. Which player do you have for replacement of Shreyas Iyer? ‘
‘Give three to four matches’
Gambhir (Gautam Gambhir) further said that you look at those people who fit your set up. At least give them a chance of three to four matches and then see where they are. If you have chosen someone, then give them a chance and then assess what they can give to the team in the future. You are trying the same players that we have been watching for the last several years.
Such behavior unfortunate
Gambhir (Gautam Gambhir) said that such behavior is wrong. He said, ‘If a player does well in the IPL, then you will start talking about him. This is unfortunate. If you start, give him at least 3-4 matches. Ishaan Kishan started the innings with a brilliant half-century and you sent him to number three. It is not to support any player.
