Danish Kaneria criticized Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid for their handling of Suryakumar Yadav, suggesting that the batsman’s lack of confidence may be a direct result of their actions.

The former Pakistan spinner accused the Indian team management of favoritism towards certain players, which he claimed was affecting the team’s overall performance. Kaneria went on to say that Suryakumar Yadav’s struggles were a direct result of the pressure put on him by the coaching staff and the captain, and that the situation could have been avoided if they had shown more faith in the player.

The ex-cricketer criticized the Indian team management for their decision to bat Suryakumar Yadav at No.7 in the third ODI match against Australia, despite his usual position at No.4. Kaneria raised questions about the team’s tactics, as he felt that it was unfair to push Suryakumar down the batting order and have players like Axar Patel and Hardik Pandya bat ahead of him, with KL Rahul taking the No.4 spot.

Danish Kaneria also pointed out that even though Virat Kohli had gone through a lean patch and struggled to score centuries, the team management never changed his batting position. He went on to criticize India’s head coach Rahul Dravid and captain Rohit Sharma for their treatment of Suryakumar Yadav and suggested that they need to support him in order to help him regain his form ahead of the 2023 World Cup.

“The Indian team management has not shown enough confidence when it comes to Suryakumar Yadav. They should not have changed his position. Even Virat Kohli took some time to come back to form, but his position didn’t change. So why with Suryakumar Yadav? The Indian team management is to blame for Suryakumar’s golden ducks. It is Rohit Sharma’s mistake as well. They demotivated him at a time when his confidence was already shattered. They should have motivated him and allowed him to bat at his position.”
