Former India batting coach, Sanjay Bangar has recently given his opinion on Suryakumar Yadav regarding the ODI World Cup.

Moreover, these suggestions will help India prepare better for the marquee event and help them in forming strategies.

Bangar says that SKY needs to be clear about how to score boundaries during the middle overs.

Says Bangar on Suryakumar’s need to improve his performance in ODI cricket,

He has already said that Rahul Dravid is there, and he has spoken to him. The biggest factor is that boundaries don’t come that easily in the middle part of the innings. When three or four wickets go, then how do you find the boundaries is the big problem because the ball becomes old. In a T20 match, the ball remains solid for the entire innings. In ODIs, in the last five overs for each team, the ball becomes soft because of which you don’t get boundaries that easily. And the second thing is, every batsman needs to find that formula on how to score runs.

Adding further, he says,

And Suryakumar Yadav is a versatile player, and he definitely targets boundaries and where to hit them. He has a very good idea of where to hit them, but if there is one thing he needs to do, it is to find out how to bat between the 25th and 40th over. I don’t think he is clear in his head and heart about how to score runs in this period. He can play as he does in the T20 format, but if wickets fall, he needs to find out how to rotate strike between the 25th and the 40th over, and he needs to find his own method to score runs which he is obviously thinking about.

Bangar says India should stop experimenting at this stage

Furthermore, Bangar has also stressed that if there is an opening for Suryakumar in the playing XI, only then he should be slotted in.

However, he wants India to refrain from experimenting at this stage because they have the World Cup coming up.

On Suryakumar, Bangar says that if India slots him in just to give him some game time, then it is a bad option.

According to me, if the team has an opening where he can play, he definitely should. But to put him in the starting eleven only for him to get game time, I don’t think the team needs to do all of that.

Adding further, he says,

I feel that Rohit and Rahul (Dravid) will be thinking the same thing. I think that they will play only with batsmen who make the proper combinations, and who make the final starting eleven, they should get most of the playing time. And the players who are in the starting eleven are very good players, whenever they get the chance they come straight away and have the ability to have an impact on the game. And whatever preparation they have in the nets, there are a lot of resources that can help them. So with that, they can prepare and train and continue the momentum, but now is not the stage to experiment, and play a player only to get game time and change the combination just for that.
