Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan had a promising debut for Team India, adding their names to the list of high talents. Former Indian Batsman VVS Laxman urged that both the young guns should be part of the Indian squad for the upcoming T20I World Cup. 

"Well, it's a very tough question because what we have seen in this series is that lot of youngsters have capitalized on their opportunities," Laxman said on Star Sports show 'Cricket Connected'.

"But the way Ishan Kishan played in his debut innings and then also the way Suryakumar Yadav played, I think both of them will definitely be in my squad of 15.
