Former India wicket-keeper-batsman and national selector Saba Karim has applauded Suryakumar Yadav for his skill to anchor the innings despite having the scoring rate high and also stated that Mumbai Indians rely heavily on him as well.

He further said that Suryakumar Yadav will be high on confidence after playing for India and Mumbai will look forward to retaining him for the next few seasons of the Indian Premier League as well.

“Mumbai Indians are lucky to have someone like Suryakumar Yadav who can come in to bat at number 3 or 4 and can anchor the innings, while also hitting boundary shots when needed. Mumbai rely heavily on Suryakumar Yadav’s batting. His name will also come up for sure when the franchise looks for the players to retain for their upcoming seasons,” Karim told Khelneeti.

Ishan Kishan could be used as a floater: Saba Karim

Saba Karim also believes that young Ishan Kishan can be used as a floater by the team. Ishan, who was recently included in India’s T20 World Cup squad, has been a powerhouse for the defending champions in the top-order.

“Ishan Kishan is not needed at the top of the order for MI. The team uses him well at number 4. I don’t think they will want to make any such changes. They have a settled batting unit and also have a lot of depth in their batting order. Ishan Kishan is a type of player who can be used as a floater. He will have a similar role with the Indian team as well,” Karim again shared.

The second phase of the Indian Premier League will resume on September 19 with Mumbai Indians playing against Chennai Super Kings. While Rohit Sharma, Hardik Pandya, Suryakumar Yadav, and Ishan Kishan have been named in India’s T20 World Cup squad, all eyes will be on them as a lot will depend on their performance in the T20 league as well.
