Aakash used to be talking on Cricbuzz LIVE along side Harsha Bhogle and previous Indian pacer Zaheer Khan. He stated, “Proper, it’s been a case of musical chairs for us up to now as a result of I believe since Yuvraj Singh go out, we had about 13 or 14 individuals who batted at No. four.”

“Shreyas Iyer performed in opposition to Sri Lanka, and I take into account him doing neatly. He went to South Africa, didn’t play a recreation. It used to be Ajinkya Rahane who batted at no. four and who if truth be told did all proper and were given dropped, and didn’t pass to England. And, it simply went all from there.
“Manish Pandey, he’s much more curious case as a result of that century got here I believe in Sydney that used to be 2016. So 2016, he scored a century, and in 3 and part years he had performed handiest 18 video games and now not the entire video games at no. four“, instructed Aakash.
Aakash agreed with Zaheer that Indian crew control must check out a participant at No. four for a minimum of 30 innings prior to they make a decision on changing him.
“Simply consider it, Yuvraj Singh scored that improbable 80 in opposition to Australia in 2000 Champions Trophy and all that, and after that for 20 ordinary innings, he didn’t actually set the arena on hearth. The similar factor may well be stated about Virendra Sehwag as neatly, and Viru used to be if truth be told batting upper up the order. You were given Yuvraj Singh who used to be meant to play that pivotal position in profitable video games. Someone has the persistence to stay with those two guys as a result of they invested, they concept that those are match-winners they usually have been proper. So Saurav Ganguly and the crew control concept that those two guys would ship in the end. So 30 innings, it is going to sound so much this present day, however you’ve got 4 years to construct against one thing“, he concluded.
