However, every time the rains stayed away the likes of Gill, Shreyas Iyer, Washington Sundar and Umran shone, catching Shastri’s consideration. “I think a lot of positives came from this one-day series. Shreyas Iyer getting runs in a couple of matches, willing to stay there and willing to go through the tough period. Suryakumar of course has the potential, has the talent, and he will deliver,” Shastri mentioned throughout Prime Video’s post-match protection.
Opening up on the younger Indian gamers within the present squad, he added, “Washington Sundar, I thought was very good. And even Umran Malik, I like the way he bowled. There’s potential there. If he can persevere, it will be very good.
“All round, there was very optimistic Shubman Gill at first of the innings. These circumstances are robust, you do not get these circumstances typically, and you do not journey to New Zealand that always.

The tour proved to be most fruitful for Washington, who had missed fairly just a few assignments within the current previous owing to accidents.
Shastri was effusive in his reward for the all-rounder, who made a composed 51 off 64 balls in robust circumstances on the Hagley Oval, days after his sensible cameo within the sequence opener.
“He grabbed the opportunity with both hands. And today I think he showed great maturity with the bat. Tough conditions, the top order struggled, and the ball was beating the bat but right from the outset in 5-7 minutes you knew this guy was composed.
“He appeared organised, he left the ball effectively and the stability was fabulous and his footwork very optimistic.
