Question on Iyer’s return
An official of the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) told PTI on the condition of confidentiality, “It is not clear yet whether Shreyas will be able to fit fully until the Sri Lanka tour. Generally, the operation and rehabilitation of such injury takes about four months. He said, “If Shreyas is available then he will be the first choice for the post of captain.” After him, Dhawan and IPL winner Hardik, who have done well in the IPL, are at the forefront of the captaincy race.
Shikhar’s performance has been fantastic
The official said, “Shikhar has done well in two IPLs, including the recently postponed tournament. He is a senior batsman and will be available for selection. He is a strong contender for captaincy. Apart from this, he has also done very well for India in the last eight years.
Hardik is also a star
As far as Hardik is concerned, the image of his match winner in limited overs cricket cannot be underestimated. He said, ‘Yes, Hardik did not bowl for Mumbai Indians and India recently but he is a trump card for the team. Among the players who leave an impact, he is far ahead of his teammates. And who knows that by getting additional responsibility, he was able to give his best performance so far.
