Suryakumar Yadav got many opportunities in the last 19 months but he was not able to achieve success in ODI. Despite this, he was also included in the World Cup squad, on which questions were raised. Now just before the World Cup, Surya has raised a question before the team management by scoring runs whether he will get a chance in the playing 11?
When the Indian team takes the field at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on October 8, what will its playing eleven be like? Which 11 players will captain Rohit Sharma and coach Rahul Dravid give a chance? These questions were being raised for the last several days. The Asia Cup title win had answered it to a great extent and it is quite possible that the same will be achieved in the third ODI against Australia on Wednesday 27th September. This question is being asked at the moment because whatever expectations were being made till now and the kind of playing eleven that was being discussed, Suryakumar Yadav has shocked it with his two tremendous innings and has staked claim for his place. .
For the last 19 months, Suryakumar Yadav was being given continuous opportunities in the ODI format despite his failures with the hope that he would solve the problems of Team India’s middle order. One after the other, the efforts of Team India and Surya went wrong throughout the 19 innings. Despite this, he was given a place in the World Cup squad. He was even given the role of finisher. Finally, Surya now seems to be successful in this.
Success after 19 months of failure.
Surya, who failed to open the account by playing one ball each in three consecutive matches in March against Australia, scored consecutive half-centuries in both the matches of the current ODI series and played this role by coming at number six both times. In Mohali, Surya came in a difficult situation and handled the innings with KL Rahul and surprised everyone by changing his game and scored a half-century after 19 months. He could not finish in that match but was able to lead the team to victory.
In Indore, Surya performed the role of finisher well and showed the same form that coach Rahul Dravid, captain Rohit Sharma and many of Surya’s supporters were desiring and expecting. Coming in the 41st over of the Indian team, which was batting first, Surya played a brilliant innings in T20 style and scored 72 runs in just 37 balls, taking the team to 399 runs. This style of Surya makes him different from the rest of the players of Team India. And that’s why he has received so much support.
…So will you get a place in the playing 11?
In such a situation, the question arises whether he can get a place in the playing eleven? Or will they have to wait even after this performance? If he has to be included in the eleven then who should be removed is a question. In the current situation, there seems to be a threat to Ishan Kishan’s place because KL Rahul is present as the wicketkeeper. In such a situation, if the team thinks of change then this becomes the only option. Now whether there is a change or not, Surya’s scoring is a good news for the team.
