New Delhi. Indian team’s explosive batsman Suryakumar Yadav was once again out on zero in Chennai ODI. He could not even open his account. He lost his wicket on the very first ball. This time there was only one difference. On the first two occasions, Mitchell Starc took Surya’s wicket. This time he got bowled by Ashton Egger. Stark got him out LBW while Agar made him clean bowled. If you look at the history of ODI cricket, this is the first time when a player has become a victim of golden duck in all the matches of the series. Sachin has also been out on zero twice in two consecutive matches in his career. In such a situation, despite such a bad form, Gautam Gambhir, the former opener of the Indian team, has supported Surya’s game.
If Gautam Gambhir is to be believed then Suryakumar Yadav is not struggling with bad form. While doing live commentary for Star Sports, Gambhir fiercely defended Surya. He believes that Sky has faced only three balls. He got out on these three balls. A player’s form cannot be assessed on the basis of just three balls. Form can be decided only when a batsman has played 30-35 balls. It would be wrong to judge his form without facing the balls.
Gautam Gambhir also raised questions on the media. He said that it is news for media and journalists that Suryakumar Yadav is struggling with bad form. Three golden ducks in three matches can be news for him, but only three balls cannot decide someone’s form.
“Sometimes it is easy to score 100 runs but it becomes difficult to score one. When he scored a run. When the ball hits the bat and crosses the boundary, everything will be fine.”
