Group India lost the last ODI round of the three-match series against Sri Lanka. However they won the series 2-1, their presentation in the last game was a long way from persuading. Remembering that, a portion of the Indian players would not have been content with the way that they played. They would need to zero in on working on in the impending T20s and in the IPL 2021 second stage also.
Nonetheless, a portion of the players may not get an opportunity in the ODI design at any point in the near future. That is the thing that former Indian cricketer and presently turned commentator Virender Sehwag accepts. The amazing opening batsman has expressed his opinion on the fate of one part in the ODI design.
Virender Sehwag has been extremely certain with the choice of youth to address India in Sri Lanka. He has called this group shockingly better than the one in England. That was to answer remarks calling this a B-group. Notwithstanding the acclaim, he has now come out and given a couple of players unforgiving analysis as well.
One player that Viru feels won’t be given an opportunity again in ODIs currently is Manish Pandey. The batsman has been poor as of late and was just picked mostly for his handling, which was the best resource for the group. However the player had respectable beginnings, he neglected to change it into anything huge.
He was one of the more experienced parts in the crew and ought to have shown others how it’s done. In any case, that didn’t occur and he was a significant disillusionment.
“Here was the perfect opportunity for Manish Pandey. Even Hardik Pandya for that matter could have done so much more. Both had scored just some 15-20 runs. So they disappointed me the most. In this three-match series, if anyone benefitted the most. It was Pandey. He played all three matches and got the chance to bat. On all three occasions, the situation was not challenging either that he had to accelerate.
“So, I believe Pandey has disappointed me the most. Perhaps he may no longer get a chance in ODIs for India. Even if he does, it is not going to be for a long time at least. Since he lost the opportunity to score in these three matches, where he could have shone. He has fallen behind in the pecking order now. Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan have scored runs. So these two will be considered ahead of him in the middle order.” Concluded by Sehwag.
