Team India won the ODI series against Sri Lanka. But the X factor was lacking in the Indian batting line-up in this series. Virat Kohli scored a century in the first match, Rohit also played a good innings. In the second ODI, KL Rahul scored a half-century to win the team, but in both these matches, Team India’s batting was lacking. There were no batsmen who could spoil the line-length of the batsmen. Suryakumar Yadav There is a batsman whose shots and quick innings destroy the rhythm of the opposition, while players like Virat-Rohit run with conventional shots, so Surya seems like a different player. Former Sri Lankan captain Dinesh Chandimal also believes this.
Expressing surprise over Suryakumar Yadav not getting a place in India’s ODI playing eleven, former Sri Lanka captain Dinesh Chandimal on Friday said such an aggressive batsman can turn a whole match around with an innings of 30 to 50 runs. Chandimal said, ‘This shows how much talent there is in Indian cricket. I still think Suryakumar Yadav can be part of the ODI team.
Despite scoring a century, Suryakumar is out of the XI
Let us tell you that Suryakumar Yadav scored a century in the third T20I against Sri Lanka and then missed out on both matches of the ODI series. Captain Rohit argued that only those who performed well in the ODI format last year were given a chance in the XI. Surya’s ODI performance was poor last year, which is probably why the players are sitting out.
Will Suryakumar get a chance?
However, Chandimal believes Suryakumar Yadav’s run has a different impact. He said, ‘A player like Suryakumar Yadav can trouble the opposition team with an innings of 30 to 50 runs. His goal-scoring speed makes a lot of difference, it makes the job of other players in the team easier. Now the last ODI against Sri Lanka will be on January 15. To see if Surya gets a chance or not.
