Suryakumar Yadav against Delhi Capitals in IPL 2021. Manjrekar believes the Mumbai Indians have a great decision to make regarding the inclusion or exclusion of Suryakumar Yadav from their playing XI. Also, for the game against the Delhi Capitals on Saturday in IPL 2021. Yadav is like a few other MI batsmen. He is struggling to find form and has scored just 35 runs in his last six IPL innings. Sanjay Manjrekar feels MI can either show trust in him in a big game. Where the team’s qualification for the playoffs is on the line. They can drop him altogether.
“When we were talking about MI’s out-of-form batsmen, we were taking names like Ishan Kishan and Hardik Pandya. Suryakumar Yadav wasn’t scoring the runs but we were saying that he would eventuallly find form. However, the way he was dismissed in the last game is surely a cause for concern for MI. This is a big game for MI and they can see it in two ways. Since it is a big game, they can show trust in Suryakumar Yadav that he will find form, or they can completely drop him like the way SRH dropped Warner for Jason Roy,” Sanjay Manjrekar said.

Sanjay is speaking about Steve Smith’s impact. At the top of the order in the last game. DC replaced an injured Prithvi Shaw with Smith and the latter performed well, scoring 39 runs. Also, it might question his strike rate. Sanjay Manjrekar is considering the pitch at Sharjah. Smith is good at countering spin, should be a part of the DC XI against Mumbai Indians.
Suryakumar Yadav against Delhi Capitals, “The game is in Sharjah where the ball is turning and you need to be good against spin. In the last game, Steve Smith played really well and looked like one of the better DC batsmen. He made the least errors and so his playing is important if Shaw is unfit,” Sanjay Manjrekar concluded.
