IND vs WI LIVE: Who will be India’s next No. 4? Shreyas Iyer or Suryakumar?
IND vs WI LIVE: After the horrible tour of South Africa, the Indian team will be back in action. India will play a six-match white-ball series against the touring West Indies. Both teams will play three ODIs and three T20Is in the series. Rohit Sharma is fit to lead the team against the Caribbean team.
The BCCI has already announced the teams for both the ODI and T20I series. There are some new faces in the team from the last series. And some players are missing. KL Rahul is going to miss the first ODI. But with Shikhar Dhawan and Rohit Sharma opening the innings, Rahul will be seen playing in the middle order.
And if Rahul bats in the middle order, then the big question will be No. 4 for Team India. India currently has two batsmen for this position: Shreyas Iyer and Suryakumar Yadav. Keeping an eye on the two ICC events in two years, India would love to solve this issue. Here’s our accurate betting tips for cricket. Read more our tips here.
Suryakumar or Shreyas Iyer for no. 4?
IND vs WI LIVE: Shreyas Iyer was given the chance in the three ODIs against South Africa. But he wasn’t able to capitalise on the opportunity. He had a score of 17, 11, and 26 in the three innings he played. However, Suryakumar Yadav was included for the last ODI only. He scored 39 runs in the match. So it will be interesting to see how Rohit & company go for their No. 4.
KL Rahul will be unavailable for the first ODI, so it will be a good opportunity for both batters to score. And if this happens, then it will be quite a headache for the management for the next match.
Shreyas Iyer has been with the team for quite a while now. He has played 25 matches, batting in the middle order. He has scored a total of 867 runs with an average of 39.41. On the other hand, Suryakumar Yadav has played just four ODIs and scored 163 runs at 54.33. But Suryakumar has performed decently whenever he has got the chance. So it will be a clear choice between experience and performance for the Indian management.
While the 50-over World Cup is still more than a year away, the next T20 World Cup is set for later this year, which means that both India and the West Indies will be seeking to narrow down probable lineups for the global event.
