Don’t ruin Suryakumar Yadav’s career

“Suryakumar Yadav is the best player to bat at No.4 in T20 World Cup 2022. So why do you want him to open the innings? If you want any batsman to open the innings, then drop Shreyas Iyer and give Ishan Kishan a place in the team. Don’t waste a player like Suryakumar. I am telling you, what will happen when Suryakumar Yadav loses his confidence after a couple of bad innings?”
Many veteran players were surprised by Suryakumar Yadav’s landing in the opening. In which the name of former player Mohammad Kaif is also included, before Srikkanth, Mohammad Kaif was also surprised about Suryakumar opening the innings.
