While Shreyas Iyer seems ready to keep his no. 4th in the ODI, Suryakumar Yadav could challenge him for the job, given his recent exploits in the T20I series against England.
According to Deep Dasgupta, Shreyas Iyer shouldn’t beat. 4 in the first ODI in Pune on Tuesday. Talk to Sport today, he said that Shreyas Iyer’s stick in the T20Is changed after Yadav’s arrival.
“Shreyas, for me, starts at # 4. His ODI numbers at # 4 are pretty impressive. Yes, Surya is there. It’s a very healthy competition. And if you look at that, after Surya comes in, the Shreyas’ stick in T20Is has changed. If you look at his hit rate and his numbers he looks like a different batsman. I think the competition is going to cause both players to start raising their plays and the bar they are setting. , “Dasgupta asserted.
While Yadav had a chance to beat at number three in the T20Is, Shreyas Iyer was moved lower in order. Both drummers excelled, with impressive shots.
Yadav scored 57 and 32 on his two visits to the crease, while Shreyas Iyer also did well with shots of 67 and 37.
VVS Laxman backs Shreyas Iyer against Suryakumar Yadav
Despite Yadav’s meteoric entry into international cricket, former Indian batsman VVS Laxman believes it might be too early for blood in ODI before Shreyas Iyer. Laxman said the batting lineup shouldn’t change after a few innings.

“I think it’s very difficult to pick just one of the two, Suryakumar Yadav and Shreyas Iyer, because what I’m really interested in is how Shreyas Iyer hit without. 6. He fought with authority, conviction and just understood the situation and played his punches from the start. Because we know it’s great for no. 4. He did so well both in one day and in T20I at this position; but for the first time I saw him bat at no. 6, and he didn’t disappoint anyone.
