Suryakumar Yadav is the face of the Indian cricket team in recent times. No matter which team, no matter which bowler, no matter which ground he is showing a one man show in white ball cricket.
Everyone who watches cricket is wondering who you are. But when the same Suryakumar Yadav was included in the Test series against the Australian team, the word that many people said was “Suriya will not be fit for Test cricket”.
What is the reason?
With Rishabh Pant sidelined due to injury, the Indian Test team needed a batsman like him who could attack the spinners. That is why Suryakumar Yadav has been selected for the Test match. Because in the 34 T20 matches that Suryakumar Yadav has played since 2020, his average against spin is 66. He also has a strike rate of 141.2.
Indian team plan
But everyone knows the difference between the spin bowled in T20 cricket and the spin bowled in Test cricket. However, Suryakumar Yadav has been selected for the Test team only because his game will be perfect to disrupt and thwart Australia’s plans.
Unadgat, KS Bharat Chance
But if Suryakumar Yadav is selected, the future of Ranji cricket will surely end. Because Unadgad, KS Bharat, who played Ranji cricket, played local cricket and made it to the Indian team. But Suryakumar Yadav has been selected based on his T20 and ODI form.
12 first-class matches
Suryakumar Yadav has played only 12 first-class matches in the last 5 years. In 2019, he has scored 774 runs at an average of 59.54 in Ranji cricket. So there is a chance for Suryakumar Yadav to perform well in Test cricket. However, the fact that players like Sarfaraz Khan have proved themselves in domestic cricket and not been selected for the Indian team, and Suryakumar Yadav has been selected has raised questions.
Perhaps if Suryakumar Yadav is fielded in the match starting tomorrow, his selection and performance will be interesting. But the Australian team has fielded with the right players for the Indian ground. Nathan Lyon, Todd Murphy, Swepson and many others have come armed to attack the Indian players. It has raised expectations as to how Suryakumar will escape from them.
