Yuvraj Singh’s serious questions on Indian team’s batting, said- ‘Iyer should…
The Indian top order completely disintegrated in the World Cup 2023 match against Australia. The team lost its three wickets for just two runs. Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer, all three were out without opening the account. Rohit Sharma was out LBW, while Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer were out after playing bad shots. After which veteran cricketer Yuvraj Singh has expressed his displeasure over the Indian batting order.
Shreyas Iyer was sent to bat at number 4 in the match. But he could not do anything special and kept walking after playing bad shots. That is why Yuvraj looked very disappointed with the team management’s decision to play Iyer at number four. He tweeted,
‘The number four batsman will have to bear the pressure. When the team is trying to manage its innings again, there is a need for better thinking from Shreyas Iyer.. Still don’t understand why Rahul is batting at number four. Not doing it! After scoring 100 runs against Pakistan! Australia may have to pay a heavy price for dropping Kohli’s catch. Because they can take the game away from Australia.
The catch that Yuvraj Singh was referring to was dropped by Mitchell Marsh. Marsh had dropped the catch of Kohli at the beginning of the Indian innings. At this time Kohli was playing on only 12 runs. But after this Kohli did not make any other mistake. Started moving forward with caution. After three wickets fell for two runs, Kohli along with Rahul made a brilliant partnership of 165 runs.
