Brian Lara’s advice to Suryakumar and Ishan Kishan: After another simple performance by Mumbai Indians batsman Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan’s exit from the team, former West Indies legend Brian Lara has said that both these players of Mumbai Indians are under pressure to either get selected in the Indian team. Or his hunger to score runs is over. Mumbai Indians defeated Punjab Kings by six wickets at the Sheikh Zayed Stadium in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday, but Suryakumar’s poor performance continued while Ishan Kishan was left out of the playing field due to poor form.
Let us inform that Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan are part of India’s ICC T20 World Cup squad to be held in UAE and Oman in October-November this year. Lara said on Star Sports on Tuesday, “Maybe there is a disappointing performance under the pressure of being included in the Indian team. If you look at Saurabh Tiwary, he shows more hunger to score runs than Suryakumar and Ishaan.”
It is worth mentioning that Saurabh Tiwary scored a crucial 45 off 37 balls against Punjab Kings and played a key role in Mumbai Indians’ successful chase of the target on Tuesday. At the same time, earlier in the match against Chennai Super Kings, he played a half-century.
Lara further said, “I think Suryakumar and Ishaan should be a little more professional now and try to help their team win the tournament. For the moment how they have to forget the T20 World Cup and bring Mumbai back in the tournament Must work on that.”
Ishaan and Suryakumar performed very poorly this season
IPL 2021 has been like a nightmare for Ishaan Kishan and Suryakumar so far. Ishaan has scored 107 runs in eight matches of IPL 2021 at an average of 13.37 and strike rate of 86.99. At the same time, in 11 matches of this season, only 189 runs have come out of Suryakumar’s bat. During this, his average was 17.18 and strike rate was 128.57.
