I feel Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan might get to play against England: Aakash Chopra
Aakash Chopra feels that a great IPL 2021 season will surely fetch Kishan and Yadav a national spot.
Former Indian opener and cricket analyst Aakash Chopra has opined that Mumbai Indians’ class batsman Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan might get chance with the national team too early. Both the uncapped players impressed a lot with their game in IPL 2020. In fact, Suryakumar didn’t see a place in the current Australia tour, and this fact invited a lot of debate. Chopra feels that the two stars might get a chance in the T20I series against England.
England would be touring India in February 2021, and Chopra feels that Yadav and Kishan might play in the series as neither of Shreyas Iyer and Sanju Samson has cemented his place well in the team. Answering a fan on his YouTube channel, Chopra believes that MI’s uncapped players are not far away from getting a maiden call-up from the national team.
“Let’s be honest, they are not that far. Because Samson got a chance, but he could not make use of that. Shreyas Iyer is also going 50-50, his Australian tour has not been that great, in fact, I will call it a slightly disappointing tour. So if we see from that point of view and Manish Pandey’s place is also not fully cemented.”
Chopra added that the duo could also get a chance in the coming up T20I series against England owing to some injury scenes in the squad. Also, if they don’t get their chances now, then a great IPL 2021 edition is sure to fetch them a national spot.
So both Yadav and Kishan are knocking the doors: Aakash Chopra
“So both Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan are knocking the doors, and considering the number of our players that are getting injured, I feel they might even get to play against England. I don’t think both of them are too far, but if they have another good IPL, which they had in IPL 2020, and if even the 2021 edition goes good, then you will definitely see them play international cricket,” concluded Aakash Chopra.
Kishan and Yadav were among the highest run-getters for Mumbai Indians in IPL 2020.
