Please do not do this. I’ll let you know what is going to, after a few failures he’ll lose his confidence. Cricket is a confidence recreation,” he stated.

Final week, former India batter Mohammed Kaif too had expressed his confusion over taking part in Surya as opener.

Ishan Kishan can also be ready,” Kaif stated on FanCode.

“No matter it was, I utterly failed to grasp it. You should have used Rishabh Pant right now for those who have been planning to make use of him because the opener for a few video games. Give him 5 possibilities at the very least. As well as, Rohit Sharma, the captain, and Rahul Dravid, the coach, help the gamers for at the very least 5–6 video games,” he added.
