How long will Ishaan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav have to wait, the batting coach made it clear
Ishaan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav understand that they will have to wait for their turn. This thing has been said by the batting coach of the Indian team, Vikram Rathor. Both of them have not been able to play in this series.
In-form Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav understand that they will have to wait for their turn in the ODI format, India’s batting coach Vikram Rathour said on Saturday. Despite their impressive performances in T20 Internationals in recent years, both the players were not included in the playing XI for the first two ODIs of the ongoing three-match series against Sri Lanka, much to the surprise of sports fans and some former players.
In a press conference on the eve of the third ODI against Sri Lanka, Rathour said, “He has not been forced to sit out. I mean other players are also doing well. As a player, he also understands that and he also has to wait for his chance and he is also preparing for it, he works hard and whenever the opportunity comes, he does well and stands his ground ”
While Suryakumar is the world’s number one T20 batsman and is enjoying his fine form in the shorter format of the game, Ishaan scored his ODI double century in Bangladesh ahead of the Sri Lanka series. Asked if Ishaan could be asked to bat in the middle order, Rathour said, “At the moment, he is being picked as an opener but as a batting unit, we are very flexible and if someone like Ishaan is there, we will be able to bat.” If there is a need to try in the middle order, then we will have to do so. However, at this time he is being seen only as an opener.

Talking about Suryakumar, Rathour said, “He’s got a lot of potential, he’s been in good form, it’s great to have him in the reserves and hopefully when the time comes, he’ll take that responsibility and do well for the team.” . With regard to the ODI World Cup to be held this year, the batting coach said that 20 matches are enough to decide the core group of players.
