Saba Karim on Ishan Kishan
“The selectors should take KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer into consideration. They can be included in the team if they are fit. But the wait has not ended. The team will be announced on the 20th from what I know, they have the time until then.
“But if they are not fit, Ishan Kishan is a good option against Rahul since he can bat as an opener and in the middle-order,”. Saba Karim was quoted as saying by India Today.
The former Wicketkeeper batsman further said that
“If Shreyas Iyer is not fit, you have 2-3 options to pick from, in Tilak Varma, Sanju Samson, and Suryakumar Yadav. But for me, Suryakumar has gained experience of playing one-day cricket both domestically and internationally. I will still back Suryakumar Yadav,”. Says Saba Karim
The selection for the Asia Cup is to happen on August 21. The Indian captain Rohit Sharma is going to be part of the team selection on August 21. Jay Shah and the Indian head coach Rahul Dravid had a meeting for nearly 2 hours. Saba Karim wants to select one among Surya or Samson at number four. The meeting took place during the last two T20I matches against West Indies in the USA. Rahul Dravid drove to Jay Shah’s place to have the meeting. This might be about the plan for the biggest cricketing event.
