Bangla Hunt Desk: Mumbai Indians opener Surya Kumar Yadav is doing a great job in the IPL this time. He has watched almost every match he has played since then. Scored over 50 more than once. The way Surya Kumar Yadav is batting in every match in the IPL this time, it was only a matter of time before Surya Kumar's place in the Indian T20 squad for the tour of Australia.
But the team announced by the Indian selectors for the tour of Australia does not include Suyra Kumar Yadav. Since then, from a number of cricket experts to cricket fans, everyone has been critical of the team selection. But did Surya Kumar deserve half the chance in the star-studded Indian middle order? The selectors have explained several reasons behind this.
Poor performance for India 'A' team:
Earlier this year, Suyra Kumar Yadav visited New Zealand on behalf of India. Suyra Kumar Yadav failed to make good use of the opportunity in that team. Suyra Kumar Yadav scored just 60 runs in three ODIs. Although he performed well on home soil, he did poorly abroad. Maybe that's why he didn't get a chance to tour Australia this time.
Lack of consistency before team selection:
Surya Kumar scored 17, 47, 00, 10, 27, 79, 53, 10, 00 in the last nine innings before the team selection. In the last nine innings before the team selection, Surya Kumar Yadav was dismissed for less than 20 runs 5 times and for 00 runs twice. If he had performed well in these matches, he might have got a chance to tour Australia.
Where will Surya play in the batting order even if he gets a chance?
The Indian batting line-up at the moment has more than five openers and countless middle-order batsmen. Everyone is a star. Now the question is if Surya Kumar Yadav gets a chance in the team then where would he play i.e. which star cricketer should be given a chance to be removedOhOr the sun? This question is still going on.
