Suryakumar Yadav Should Be Given Consistent Opportunities In Team India, Danish Kaneria: Indian batsman Suryakumar Yadav got a chance at the international level for a long time. His age is more than 31 years, but he has not played many matches for the Indian team. Former Pakistan leg-spinner Danish Kaneria believes that Suryakumar should be given regular opportunities at the international level.
On Friday, Danish Kaneria, on his YouTube channel, said that Suryakumar Yadav is more mature than Shreyas Iyer. He urged the Indian team management to support the right-handed batsman more and get regular chances in the playing XI.

On the other hand, regarding Shreyas Iyer, he said that he has to improve his game to save his place on the team. He added that the right-handed batsman would have to perform consistently to carve a place for himself in the team’s star-studded batting lineup. Kaneria said,
There have been reports that Rahul Dravid considers Shreyas Iyer to be more mature than Suryakumar Yadav. But I do not agree with Dravid’s thinking. It would be unfair if Suryakumar Yadav did not get enough opportunities at this age. Iyer has to perform consistently. Otherwise, there is no way to retain his place on the team.
Suryakumar Yadav was injured during IPL 2022, and due to this, he was also ruled out of the home T20 series against South Africa. However, he is now fit and is ready to return from the Ireland tour. He has been included in the Indian squad for two T20 matches on tour.
On the other hand, Shreyas, who played all five matches against South Africa, failed to perform impressively, and his weakness against the fast bowlers was exposed.
Indian Squad for Ireland Tour: Hardik Pandya (Captain), Bhuvneshwar Kumar (Vice-Captain), Ishan Kishan, Ruturaj Gaikwad, Sanju Samson, Suryakumar Yadav, Venkatesh Iyer, Deepak Hooda, Rahul Tripathi, Dinesh Karthik (WK), Yuzvendra Chahal, Axar Patel, Ravi Bishnoi, Harshal Patel, Avesh Khan, Arshdeep Singh, Umran Malik.
