Suryakumar should bat at the No.3 position: Gautam Gambhir
Former Indian opener Gautam Gambhir feels India should let Suryakumar bat at No.3 till the T20 World Cup
“The reason is that you don’t fiddle with someone’s form, just because you want someone else to get back in form.”
“He was unbelievable in England when everyone struggled, was brilliant in the West Indies as well. He’s 30 as well.”
“Virat Kohli, he has got so much experience, he can still come and bat at No.4, depending on the situation as well.”
“I personally feel that Surya should be batting at No.3 from here on till the World Cup and see how the results are going to be.”
Yadav scored an unbeaten 68 off just 24 deliveries to help India through to the 2022 Asia Cup’s Super Four stage.
Suryakumar came to the crease with the score at 94/2 in 13 overs. He was able to give the team a lot of momentum.
