IND vs ENG: Gautam Gambhir Criticizes Virat Kohli For Dropping Suryakumar Yadav

Former Indian cricketer Gautam Gambhir has questioned Virat Kohli’s captaincy over his decision to drop Suryakumar Yadav from the third T20I against England. Gautam Gambhir criticised Kohli for his indecisive nature while picking the playing XI for India. Mumbai Indian’s stars Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan made their international debuts against England in the 2nd T20I.

On one hand, Ishan Kishan made a dream debut with a match-winning half-century against England and on the other, Suryakumar Yadav didn’t receive the opportunity to bat during India’s chase. Adding to that, Virat Kohli dropped him in the next T20I. Gautam Gambhir stated that Virat Kohli should have backed Surya in the 3rd T20I as well. Gambhir believes that Surya should be given atleast 4 or 5 games in a row.

“It amazes me, seven months before the World Cup he starts preparing for World Cup and probably after the World Cup he will start preparing for the next World Cup. It really doesn’t matter, the kind of form you are in matters. Imagine if there is an injury issue, what have you seen of Suryakumar Yadav, what have you seen of Suryakumar Yadav in international cricket. I hope nobody gets injured but if there is an injury case and somebody needs to bat at number 4 and number 5. For example, there has to be a replacement for Shreyas Iyer, who are you gonna go for,” said Gautam Gambhir.

“So at least look at someone whom you have got into the setup. Probably give him that ‘opportunity in three or four games and see where he stands. If he delivers, you have got a backup for someone already batting at number four. If you get someone play him in that series and see what he is giving in the future. We keep talking about preparations but this is just no preparation for the World Cup. It’s just about looking at the same players what you have seen for so many years,” Gambhir added.
