Describing the same, during a show on Star Sports, VVS Laxman said, “Well, it’s a very tough question because what we have seen in this series is that lot of youngsters have capitalized on their opportunities. But the way Ishan Kishan played in his debut innings and then also the way Suryakumar Yadav played, I think both of them will definitely be in my squad of 15. It’s a tough choice, but I think both of them deserve to play in the Indian squad come the World Cup.”

Laxman, after Suryakumar’s debut, was astonished by the batsman’s six off Jofra Archer and said that that batsman’s mindset is praiseworthy.

Explaining it further, Laxman said, “Spectacular, he astonished both me and Jofra Archer. His mindset is praiseworthy. He even told Murali Kartik that he wanted to keep it simple. If you complicate things too much, you forget at times what your strengths are and what is your template of scoring runs.”
