World Cup 2023: In the match against Australia, 3 batsmen of India (IND vs AUS World Cup) were out within just 2 runs. India's Rohit Sharma, Ishan Kishan and Shreyas Iyer returned to the pavilion without scoring runs, after which former India veteran Yuvraj Singh raised questions by sharing a post on the social media platform. Actually, Yuvi did not like why Shreyas Iyer was sent to bat instead of KL Rahul at Number 4. Yuvi has also given advice to Shreyas Iyer in his post. Yuvi wrote in his post, "The number four batsman will have to bear the pressure ... When the team is trying to handle their innings again, Shreyas Iyer needs better thinking... Still do not understand why Rahul is not batting at number four! After scoring 100 runs against Pakistan! Australia may have to pay a big price if Kohli leaves the catch.
No 4 batsman has to absorb the pressure !! Need better thinking from @ShreyasIyer15 when team is trying to rebuild their innings ! Still don't understand why @klrahul is not batting at no 4 ! After scoring a 100 against Pakistan ! Dropping @imVkohli might cost Australia big time...

Shubman Gill is not playing in today's match. In such a situation, Ishan Kishan was included in place of Gill. But Gill was caught out by Starc in the first over. Kishan could not even open his account. But after this, Rohit Sharma and Shreyas Iyer were dismissed by Josh Hazlewood and gave India a big blow. Rohit lbw is out,
