Meanwhile, a Lok Sabha member from Thiruvananthapuram and an ardent cricket fan has suggested that India play Suryakumar Yadav against New Zealand on Sunday and replace Shardul Thakur with Mohammed Shami.

“So @hardikpandya7 has been ruled out of India’s next World Cup match, against New Zealand in Dharamsala on Sunday. Since he has to be replaced and there is no other true all-rounder in the squad, we need two changes to cover both bases: @MdShami11 should come on,” he wrote. At the expense of Lord Shardul and Hardik’s place should go to @surya_14kumar. This match will determine who is truly the best in the quarter-final stage of #WorldCup2023. We have to play with the best possible lineup!”

So far India have won all four of their matches in the World Cup and stand second in the points table behind New Zealand who are leading on a net average.
