You can’t be flexible with the top three batters – Jayawardene
Former International Batsman and Mumbai Indians coach talked about India’s downfall, saying, “You can be flexible. But not with your top-three batters,” Jayawardene said on a news channel. “I think most teams if you take, you don’t have too much flexibility in that top three. They are settled.
They are the ones who are going to give you that initial tempo, who are going to go about things. And then you have that guy at No. 3 who is going to glue things together and bat in both halves of the innings and the rest of the guys are the ones who will probably get floated in and around.”
India should have made just one batting change – Jayawardene
Firmly stating that Rohit should had opened the innings, Jayawardene elaborated, “That’s his role he plays in T20 cricket and Virat Kohli is either an opener or No. 3. I think KL Rahul would have been able to play that No. 4 role because he has that ability to change and adapt.
