Can do wonders on 3-4 numbers
Shastri said, ‘Tripathi is not far away from being a part of the Indian team. He is a dangerous player at number 3 or 4. If he performs well every season, I am sure the selectors will watch him very closely and will give his due soon. In this season of IPL 2022, Tripathi has scored 393 runs for Hyderabad at a strike rate of 161.72 including three half-centuries. Shastri further praised Tripathi’s fearless batting.
Tripathi is full of confidence
Shastri said, ‘Tripathi is a very confident player. What I like best is that he has a good selection of shots. He makes every bowler understand their length and shoots well. He has a shot for every ball, so he is an impressive player. Shastri also explained why Tripathi is sent to bat at number three.
He said, ‘Tripathi is doing well season after season. At the same time, if a wicket falls early and scores are not being scored, then he comes to number three and scores quickly and provides a strength.
