Suryakumar Yadav did the best in T20 against Sri Lanka.
Mr. 360 got a chance in the last match of the ODI series.
New Delhi. India has started the World Cup year in a grand manner. In the new year, Team India defeated Sri Lanka in the first T20 series. After that, the visiting team was not allowed to win a single match in the ODI series. Suryakumar Yadav, the star batsman of the T20 format of the Indian team, was the subject of much discussion about the opportunity in ODIs. However, in the last ODI, he got a chance to play in the playing XI. But his batting came at the end of the innings.
Sky played a brilliant century against Sri Lanka in T20 and also broke many records. He is the batsman who has scored the most runs in the short format since last year. But Sky has got less opportunities in ODIs and when he does, his bat has not spoken fiercely. Surya returned to the pavilion early in the last ODI against Sri Lanka. But from the point of view of the World Cup, he is a very important batsman for Team India. At the same time, former Indian veteran Robin Uthappa has made a big prediction about Mr. 360. He has told Suryakumar Yadav as the biggest X factor for the World Cup 2023.
Suryakumar Yadav is at the top of my list – Robin Uthappa
Robin Uthappa was quoted as saying by IANS, ‘Anyone can be the X-factor in the upcoming World Cup. But right now Suryakumar Yadav is at the top of my list. However, Sky could not play much cricket even in the ODI series against Sri Lanka. But I know the players who are getting frequent chances are under pressure to perform. Because if he does not perform well then the management cannot keep Sky out for long.
‘I’ve played with him before’
Uthappa further said, ‘Sky is a very important player for the team. He times the ball very well and is a match winning player. At this time he is batting at a different level. I have played with him before, so it is a great pleasure for Surya to reach this stage. He has worked hard for his career.
