Why is Suryakumar Yadav getting a chance? Will he be able to play in the third ODI, Rohit Sharma broke his silence


Suryakumar was dismissed on the first ball in 2 consecutive ODIs
People are demanding to include Samson in place of Surya

New Delhi. Indian cricket team’s middle order batsman Suryakumar Yadav is on the target of fans these days. This is the same Surya who has created a ruckus in T20 but has not been able to perform as expected in ODIs. 32-year-old Suryakumar Yadav got a chance in place of Shreyas Iyer in the ODI series against Australia. But Surya flopped in two consecutive ODIs. He is losing the wicket on the first ball. Both times, Mitchell Starc trapped Surya in front of the wicket on the inswing ball. On social media, people are talking about giving Sanju Samson a chance in the team instead of Suryakumar Yadav. However, in this difficult time, Surya has got the support of captain Rohit Sharma.

Rohit Sharma said in the press conference held after the second ODI of the series that Surya is a capable player and the team management will give him a chance. The Indian captain said, ‘We do not know when Shreyas Iyer will return. If his place is vacant, we will feed only Suryakumar. He has done well in white ball cricket. I have said earlier also that those who have potential will get opportunities. Suryakumar lost the wicket on the very first ball in Mumbai and Visakhapatnam ODIs.

‘Need to be given chances in at least 10 matches’
According to Rohit Sharma, ‘He knows very well that he has to perform well in ODIs. I have said earlier also that capable players should never feel that they are not getting enough opportunities. Yes, he got out early in the last two matches of the series but he needs to be backed consistently. In about 10 matches so that he can feel more comfortable. There is no one to replace Shreyas. So we can trust him.

Not a single half-century in 16 innings
Suryakumar has not been able to score a half-century in the last 16 innings in ODIs. During this, his best score was 34 not out, which he made against New Zealand. Australia defeated the Indian team by 10 wickets in Visakhapatnam ODI. With this, the 3-match series is tied at 1-1. The third and last ODI of the series will be played in Chennai on Wednesday (March 22).
