The squad for the 2023 World Cup of the Indian team may arrive in a few days. For him, the ongoing West Indies series may come off as an audition for some players. There are three names in this team among which the draw can be made. Ishan Kishan, Suryakumar Yadav and Sanju Samson are the three players whose decision to play in the World Cup squad will depend on their form and the return of KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer. Meanwhile, Ishaan Kishan has strengthened the claim on him by starting in both consecutive ODIs. At the same time, the place of Suryakumar Yadav, who was the victim of three consecutive golden ducks in the Australia series, is now in jeopardy.
Sanju Samson, however, got to play only the first game this year where he couldn’t do anything. But Surya, who has been a part of Team India in ODIs continuously this year, was unable to do anything special. Suryakumar Yadav also disappointed in both matches of the West Indies series. He where he bowled his wicket in the first ODI which was low scoring, in the second ODI he also bowled his wicket on the tee spin ball. He scored 19 and 24 runs in two games. Previously, his account was not even opened in all three matches of the ODI series against Australia. In such a situation, a crisis has now begun to appear in its place.
Surya didn’t hit Pachasa for 17 innings
Let us tell you that in the history of ODI cricket for India, only one batsman has passed before Suryakumar Yadav who did not score any Fifty Plus in 17 innings from November 2010 to September 2011. That player was Suresh Raina but now this Junk album was also recorded in the name of Suryakumar Yadav. Surya’s second and final half-century in One Day Internationals came against the West Indies in February 2022 at the Ahmedabad ground. Since then the graph of him has fallen. He has scored 476 runs in 23 innings of 25 career ODI matches of his. His average is also around 23. He has only two half centuries to his name.
Will Suryakumar Yadav’s World Cup ticket be cut?
Now, if we talk about Suryakumar Yadav’s ticket to the World Cup, then the biggest threat to him is the return of Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul. In fact, Surya has been seen as an option for number four for some time. But when he couldn’t do anything, now they gave him the role of finisher in number 5-6. Even in this role, he couldn’t do anything special. By the way, Shreyas Iyer used to play at number 4 often. Now, when Iyer returns, he can automatically snatch that role from Surya. Apart from this, with the arrival of KL Rahul, the India team will get another solid batsman in the middle order. In this situation, the out of shape Suryakumar Yadav may lose his place. If Surya had done something special in this series, he probably could have been taken to the Asian Cup, now even if Rahul and Iyer come to the Asian Cup, there are doubts about his game.
