In the second ODI, there was a noticeable alteration to the Indian cricket team’s starting XI. Similar to the first ODI, Shubman Gill and Ishan Kishan opened the innings when Virat Kohli and Rohit Sharma were rested. Suryakumar Yadav batted at position six, Sanju Samson at position three. Samson’s supporters, who have been very outspoken on social media about his obtaining opportunities, had high expectations for him. However, the captain of the Rajasthan Royals could only manage nine points from 19 balls before being taken out.
While without being overly critical of Samson, former BCCI selector Saba Karim stated that the management of the Indian squad should have thought more carefully before choosing the batting order.
Sanju Samson doesn’t want to be the wicketkeeper. I’m not trying to be rude when I say that. He is much more effective in my opinion as a batter than a wicketkeeper-batter. Don’t be too severe, please. Samson has never played a specific position consistently. He should be cast there if you are thinking of him as a no. 4 or no. 5 in the middle order, according to Saba Karim on Jio Cinema.
“You’re making everyone confused here. I am certain that Ishan Kishan won’t be opening when KL Rahul gets in. Now, what will it do even if it performs well in the first inning? In the World Cup, he won’t start the game.
Seven-time Test match veteran Abhinav Mukund said, “The top three are set. Ishan Kishan is in fantastic form at the top of the order, but with the World Cup so close by, you don’t have a backup middle-order hitter. The mind is a little fuzzy.
The Indian squad needs to perform better and finish the series with one ODI remaining while also figuring out some “answers” to the World Cup question.
