Aakash Chopra says “I request with folded hands of Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya” in T20 World Cup 2021. Chopra has asked Team India to send Suryakumar Yadav and Hardik Pandya. They are up the order for the duo to have a conventional hit within the middle. India faces Australia in their second and final warm-up match. Ahead of the Super 12 stage of the T20 World Cup. Virat Kohli-led side will hope to iron out their remaining deficiencies. Before they take on arch-rivals Pakistan in their competition.
“You need people in the form to finish games off and for that, I request with folded hands to send them both [Surya and Hardik] up the order. You wasted a chance in the last match and you won’t get this chance every time,” Chopra said.
Chopra includes Team India might be looking to play Rishabh Pant. Ahead of Suryakumar Yadav at No.4 in the T20 World Cup. However, Chopra wants the plan to be set aside for the match against Australia.
“I am getting the smell that Rishabh Pant might actually be seen playing for India at No.4 which is not a bad idea because there is no lefty up or down the order. You want to para drop a lefty before Jaddu comes but that can wait till the Pakistan game,” Chopra said.
Moreover, Pant batted at No.4 and struck a swashbuckling unbeaten 29 in Team India’s win against England. Yadav is, on the other hand, contributed just eight runs from nine deliveries. Also, Chopra featured that Surykumar Yadav needs more time. In the middle considering that he was not at his best in IPL 2021.
“Lastly, if you play him [Pant] at No.4, the ones you have kept at No.5 and No.6 don’t have form. Suryakumar Yadav, of course, made runs in the last match he played for Mumbai but his second half of the IPL has been lackluster, other than one match,” Chopra said.
