INDvENG: Farooq Engineer wants to see this young Indian playing at Headingley, says – Trump card will prove
Suryakumar Yadav and Farooq Engineer
- Farooq Engineer wants change in Indian XI for Leeds Test
- Throw out any one player from Rahane or Pujara
- Young Mumbai batsman got a chance to play on the batting pitch of Handingley
New Delhi: The third Test match of the series between India and England is to be played from 25 August at Headingley ground in Leeds. The Indian team has reached Leeds on Sunday to participate in the match. In such a situation, 3 days before the match, the debate has once again erupted about the Indian XI. This time the person who started the debate is the former wicketkeeper of Team India, Farooq Engineer.
India took a 1-0 lead in the series after registering a 151-run win at the Lord’s Test. If the Indian team wins in Leeds too, then they will take an unbeatable 2-0 lead in the series. The Indian team, which last lost in Leeds in 1967, would like to leave no stone unturned to win.
Yadav gets a chance in place of Pujara or Rahane
There is little chance that Virat Kohli will make any changes in his team for the third Test. But Farooq Engineer believes that India should replace Cheteshwar Pujara or Ajinkya Rahane in the middle order in Leeds with Suryakumar Yadav. Questions are being raised on the performance of Pujara and Rahane after the continuous poor performance. However, there was a century partnership between the two in the Lord’s Test. Despite this, Farooq Engineer believes that India should include Suryakumar in the XI in Leeds.
Suryakumar is a great batsman, fielder and human being
Farooq Engineer has also counted Suryakumar Yadav’s merits while describing him as a match winner. He said, first of all, I am a big fan of Suryakumar Yadav. According to me he is a great player. I would choose him over either Pujara or Rahane. Both of them are also great players but Suryakumar is the match winner. When Shreyas Iyer is out of the team due to injury, Suryakumar should be in his place. He is an aggressive player. He can score a century fast for you or can make 70-80 runs fast. He is a great batsman, a great fielder and a wonderful human being.
Will prove trump card for Team India
The engineer continued, people generally refrain from tinkering with their winning combinations. But as it is said that horses are different for every course. It will also depend on Headingley’s wicket. I don’t think it will be any different. Headingley’s wicket is good for Test cricket. It is considered one of the best batting wickets in the world. So I want to see Suryakumar Yadav playing in the Indian XI. He will prove to be the trump card for the Indian team.
