'Suryakumar Yadav is a mystery' - Saba Karim on the SKY's Flop show in the ODI series

‘Suryakumar Yadav is a mystery’ – Saba Karim on the SKY’s Flop show in the ODI series: Former Indian player Saba Karim stated that Shreyas Iyer to Suryakumar Yadav in the playing XI once he is fully fit.

As Indian batter SKY is yet to get off the mark in the ongoing three-match ODI series against Australia.

Suryakumar Yadav bagged golden ducks in the first two fixtures. He said that Suryakumar Yadav’s form is a mystery, given the contrasting nature of his performances in T20Is and ODIs.

The cricketer-turned-commentator suggested that skipper Rohit Sharma would still want to give the player a few more chances before taking a call on his future.

“The team management sees Suryakumar Yadav as an option for Shreyas Iyer. I am sure that Iyer will return and be India’s No.4 at the World Cup because he has done really well in that position. Suryakumar is a mystery at the moment. He is at the top in T20Is, how can he not score runs in ODIs? This is why I feel Rohit Sharma wants to give him a few more chances.

While he is currently the number one-ranked batter in T20Is, he has failed to translate his red-ball form into the 50-over format. His ODI average has dropped to 25.5.

“What other options do we have for the No.4 spot? Sarfaraz Ahmed and Rajat Patidar come to mind, but they are both injured at the moment. We can consider Sanju Samson as an option. It is very important to have a few options ready. But we don’t know if he is fit or not.”

Karim suggested that potential candidates like Rajat Patidar and Sarfaraz Khan were dealing with their respective injuries. While there was no clarity as to why Sanju Samson had been overlooked.

The ODI series decider between India and Australia will be played at the MA Chidambaram Stadium in Chennai on Wednesday, March 22. Suryakumar Yadav is expected to retain his place in the side for the crucial tie despite the back-to-back failures.
