Kolkata Knight Riders’ biggest mistake to drop Suryakumar Yadav: Gautam Gambhir


Gautam Gambhir said that over Suryakumar Yadav, who kept performing very well while in the Mumbai Indians team, it was a big mistake for Kolkata Knight Riders to throw out Suryakumar Yadav from the team.

And today we are seeing the result of this too. Suryakumar Yadav has a big role in the loss of Kolkata Knight Riders.

Surya Kumar Yadav scored 512, 424 and 480 runs in IPL season 2018, 2019, 2020 respectively. With this, despite scoring 181 runs in IPL 2021, he is the star batsman of Mumbai News today, and Mumbai Indians like him very much. Mumbai Indians made a big deal by including Suryakumar Yadav in their team.

Talking to Star Sport on Thursday, Gautami said that the release of Suryakumar Yadav was the biggest loss for Kolkata Knight Riders.

2011 World Cup winner Gautam revealed that he regretted not using Suryakumar Yadav at number three. Because he could not use him at number three in KKR.

Giving information, Gautam Gambhir said that his only sorrow was that he could not send Suryakumar Yadav at number three and wanted him to bat at number three. Which he could not do.

They had Manish Pandey, Yusuf Pathan, so they had to use them again as match finishers. If seen from KKR’s point of view, he suffered a huge loss in the form of Suryakumar Yadav, as he himself pulled out Kumar Yadav from the team.

The player you groom for 4 years and then let him go is a big mistake. Because at present Surya Kumar Yadav is at the peak of his career.

Giving information, Gautam Gambhir said that Suryakumar Yadav did not score more runs in Kolkata Knight Riders because he was never used properly. In today’s time, Mumbai Indians are being used properly and they are scoring runs.

Gautam Gambhir said:

“Because we couldn’t give him that space, I couldn’t score that 400, 500 or 600 runs in a season. The loss of a party has turned into a big advantage of a party. The big loss of Kolkata Knight Riders has become the big advantage of Mumbai Indians.”

Surya Kumar Yadav started in IPL from 2012 and he first joined Mumbai Indians team. He only played one match in that team & came to Kolkata Knight Riders in 2014.

In 2018, he was bought by Mumbai Indians for Rs 3.2 crore and since then Suryakumar Yadav has never looked back.
