KL Rahul and Iyer receive a strong warning from Gavaskar, who says, “Don’t forget there’s a certain…who will return in ODIs.”

India’s current ODI vice-captain Rohit Sharma has been ruled out of the upcoming series against Australia due to injury. This has led to speculations about who will lead the team in his absence. While KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer are the frontrunners for the role, former captain Sunil Gavaskar has warned them not to take their position for granted.

Gavaskar said, “There’s a certain somebody who will return in ODIs. So KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer, don’t take your position for granted.” He was referring to Virat Kohli, who is currently on a break from cricket and is not part of the ODI squad for the series against Australia.

Gavaskar’s comments have received a mixed response from fans. Some feel that he is right and that Kohli should be given the captaincy role as soon as he is available. Others feel that Rahul and Iyer have earned the right to lead the team and that they should be given a chance to prove themselves.

What do you think? Should Virat Kohli be immediately reinstated as captain when he becomes available?

Gambhir acknowledges that his “sole regret in seven years of captaincy” is Suryakumar Yadav: “KKR failed to recognise his potential.”

Throughout his incredible career with the Mumbai Indians since 2018, Suryakumar Yadav has become a household name. He has established himself as a vital member of the batting lineup and is seen as the team’s future leader. He was able to establish himself in the Indian white-ball team and get to the top of the IC batting rankings in the format because to his valiant efforts at MI. But before he was let away, Suryakumar was a member of the Kolkata Knight Riders lineup from 2014 to 2017. When former captain Gautam Gambhir reflects on the two IPL titles won by KKR during that time, he named the star player from India his greatest regret.

KKR featured Suryakumar Yadav from 2014 to 2017.

In 2012, Suryakumar began his IPL career with the Mumbai Indians, appearing in just one match before being cut loose the following year. He was signed by KKR in 2014, and he won the championship in his first campaign there. The right-handed batter scored 608 runs in 54 games during his four-year tenure with the team, although the majority of those runs were scored as a lower middle order hitter.

In an interview with Sportskeeda on Monday, Gambhir said that his biggest regret as KKR captain is that he failed to recognise Suryakumar’s ability or his ideal batting position in the lineup.

Finding and showcasing the greatest potential is the responsibility of a leader. If there’s one thing I regret from my seven years as captain, it’s that neither I nor the squad were able to fully utilise Suryakumar Yadav. And combinations were the key to the cause. At No. 3, you may only play one person. As a leader, you also need to consider the other ten players in the starting lineup. Although he was just as excellent at No. 7, he would have been far more effective at No. 3, he said.

Gambhir went on to praise Suruyakumar for being a team player, citing the reason behind his appointment as the team’s vice-captain in 2015.

He was a team player as well. A good player may be anyone, but becoming a team player takes skill. Playing him at No. 6 or 7 or benching him, he was constantly grinning and eager to contribute to the squad. He went on, “That’s why we named him vice captain.”
