“Rohit Sharma has clearly stated it”: India’s great response to Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav’s exclusion from ODIs

For excluding Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav from this week’s first two One-Day Internationals against Sri Lanka. Captain Rohit Sharma and head coach Rahul Dravid were slammed.

Fans were even more outraged when Shubman Gill replaced Ishan, despite Ishan scoring a record double ton in his previous match.

For excluding Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav from this week’s first two One-Day Internationals against Sri Lanka, captain Rohit Sharma and head coach Rahul Dravid were slammed.

Fans were even more outraged when Shubman Gill replaced Ishan. Despite Ishan scoring a record double ton in his previous match.

Mohammad Kaif, a great Indian player, believes that the decision only reflects the captain’s thinking about the format. Which will host a World Cup tournament in eight months.

Kaif was asked to choose between Rahul-Gill and Kishan-Suryakumar teams during an interview with Star Sports. While he found it difficult to choose between the two, he rather praised Rohit for his clear choice.

As captain, I believe Rohit Sharma has made it abundantly clear. Over the past few years, the boys have been playing and getting runs. Gill and KL Rahul performed well last year.

KL Rahul finishes the innings in the same way he did in the previous game. Which is fantastic, while Shubman Gill is scoring runs in the first inning.

“Rohit isn’t going to be flashy. Ishan Kishan and Surya, who are fantastic players, will tempt you. But he knows he needs to give his players a long run, which is why Gill and KL are playing,” he added.

So far in the series, Gill and Rahul have both impressed. While Rahul scored an unbeaten 64 to lead India to victory in the second match, the opener scored 70 runs in a century stand with Rohit in the first match of the series.
