Suryakumar Yadav’s form in the ODI format has been a cause for concern for the Indian team in the past year. Surya, who did not open the account in 3 matches of the home series against Australia, has seen a similar performance in the first 2 ODIs on the West Indies tour. Now, Team India head coach Rahul Dravid has also expressed concern about his form, but considering Surya’s ability, he is thinking of giving him more chances.
In the first ODI of the series against the West Indies, it saw an innings of 19 runs off Surya’s bat and just 24 runs in the second match. Head Coach Rahul Dravid said on Surya’s performance in the post second ODI press conference that I think Suryakumar Yadav is definitely a great player and it shows in his performance. Some excellent innings of Surya’s bat have also been seen in T20 cricket, white ball cricket and domestic cricket.
Rahul Dravid further said that sadly I think he will be the first player to admit that his ODI figures have not been seen at the level seen in the T20 format so far, but he is just going through the learning process.
On the question of giving Suryakumar Yadav continuous chances, coach Rahul Dravid said that we will try to give him as many chances as possible. Now it’s up to him how he takes advantage of this opportunity. I think he’s still learning how to hit up the middle in the ODI format. Tell them Surya is currently the number 1 player in T20 International, but in the ODI format, he has seen an average of around 13 in the last year.
