India has been ruling in the top 3 of the points table both in limited overs and test cricket from the last decade.
The Indian cricket standard has stepped up to the next level under the captaincy of leaders like MS DHONI and VIRAT KOHLI.
Even after being one of the best team in the limited overs India’s line up still has an issue in the middle order.
This debacle of middle order has been going on since long years.
Many players along with newbies have been given the chance to fill the void but still there is no productive output.
After Suresh Raina India has not yet able to find a consistent performer for the middle order.
Now after a long trial and error method, Indian cricket has now find a gem who can solve this middle order debacle.
Yes, that’s Suryakumar Yadav.
RISE OF SURYAKUMAR YADAV
This guy has been in limelight from the last two years for his amazing consistent knocks in the domestic cricket as well as Indian Premier League.
Suryakumar Yadav is a fine cricketer and knows the technique to put runs on the scoreboard when the top order is in trouble.
Along with his skills he has an experience bucket filled up with domestic and T20 cricket.
SKY has improved his game a lot in the last few years. From batting in the 6th down for Kolkata Knight Riders and hitting those reverse sweeps to being the backbone of Mumbai Indians, SKY has come a long way.
SKY made his international debut for India in t20 cricket against England on 18 July 2021.
With a total of 7 matches (4 t20 & 3 ODI) in his International career, he has registered three half centuries in it with an average of 46.33 (t20) and 62 (ODI).
After reviewing the game style and intent of Suryakumar Yadav in the limited overs cricket, I can assure that this guy will be the perfect match for that position.
Mindset becomes an integral part for any player when you’re playing for the country at the highest level.
This solid mindset replicates in the game of SKY. For any player making a debut, there is always a pressure to perform.
But in Suryakumar Yadav’s debut game you won’t find any such pressure in him rather he is playing as if it’s a regular match for him. It’s all about the mindset and discipline.
He has never let things affect him. Whenever gets a chance, he delivers, that’s what discipline does to you.
And for this I will even appreciate the captaincy of Virat Kohli, where the players are given the freedom to play their own game rather than following any printed strategy.
For the upcoming T20 World Cup this year, India needs to be ready with the best team and Surya’s presence in the middle order will lead to an experienced line up.
So this was all about Suryakumar Yadav. Though the squad for T20 World Cup has not yet been declared but yes through my analysis I can assure you his selection in the squad.
See you in the next blog and till then take care.
