Why Gautam Gambhir Lauds Suryakumar Yadav

Recently Gautam Gambhir has given a thought on comparison with Shreyas Iyer. He thinks that Surya Kumar has all the shots in the book needed for the T20 format and is far more versatile than Shreyas Iyer.

“Surya is a completely different class compared to Shreyas Iyer. He is much more versatile and also very unorthodox. The T20 cricket requires unorthodox people. We need people who can beat it. That’s all about T20 cricket, Gambir said at the Star Sports Show.

Surya’s got both kinds of change, which probably Shreyas Iyer doesn’t have: Gambhir

“He can wrap you, he can cut you late, he can hit you over the extra cover. He has all the shots, especially in No. 4, hitting a bat with a T20 cricket can be the most difficult position. Probably the easiest is in the top three, but No. 4 can be when you lose. Two There are early ticket gates and we still want to maintain momentum, “he added.

There will be a battle for the number 4 position between Rishabh Pant, Suryakumar Yadav, and Shreyas Iyer. Also, Iyer coming off after a serious injury can be doubtful about the form. Gambhir feels that it is the right decision, for now, to keep Shreyas Iyer in reserves.

“Sometimes you come into the middle, when you have got what… 130 for 2, and you have got to continue with the momentum. So, Surya’s got both kinds of change, which probably Shreyas Iyer doesn’t have. And again, you have to be mindful that he is coming after a serious injury and you never know what kind of a form he would be in the second leg of IPL as well. So, they’ve gone with someone, who has done really well, since he has gone into the intern.
