Veteran wicket-keeper batsman Dinesh Karthik asked the Indian team management to give Suryakumar Yadav more chances in the playing XI. He has scored 39, but India lost the game by 4 runs in the third and final ODI in Cape Town.

Suryakumar Yadav also made a partnership with Rishabh Pant

Walking into bat at No.6 at an important juncture, he added a crucial partnership with Shreyas Iyer. Karthik said on Cricbuzz: “Jadeja is ready to bat at No.6, in fact, he is batting so well that he can play at No.5 as well. He is not the reckless kid anymore, he is using his head now and winning games with the bat, and in white-ball cricket, his stronger suit might be his batting. He will deliver for you consistently because he has got a good head on his shoulders and he knows how to take a game deep.”

Dinesh Karthik has also applauded Surykumar Yadav. He believes that Yadav can do well if he got a long run. However, he is likely to be part of the team as India will soon host West Indies for a limited-overs series.

Karthik added: “Suryakumar Yadav is batting on a different planet altogether, the kind of shots, the kind of positions, and the execution put together. He made batting look way easier than it was in that situation. Give him a long run, I’m sure he will do wonders for India. But, he needs a long run, now every time he comes out, he is under pressure from the players above and below him. It is very hard to set fields for him.”

Dinesh Karthik continued: “SKY will play with the same tempo in any position. For Mumbai Indians also, he plays in a similar way coming in at No.3. You will get a good amount of runs if you play him at No.4 or 5, but I will bat him at No.5 or 6 in ODI cricket because he turns around games in quick time on a consistent basis.”
