Team India to give Suryakumar Yadav another chance
Former opener Wasim Jaffer has urged Team India to give Suryakumar Yadav another chance in the third ODI. Jaffer says that looking at the class of batsman Surya is, it is necessary to give him another chance. After this series, batsmen like KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer will return to the team, after which it will be difficult for Surya to make a place in the team.
SKY has proved its mettle in T20 cricket, but in ODI cricket, it has not been able to leave its mark yet. He has played a total of 25 matches in this format, but his average during this period has been 23 and he has managed to cross the 50-run mark only once.

Jaffer told ESPNcricinfo about Surya being given another chance, ‘I think he should get another chance in the third ODI and probably it will happen. After this, Shreyas Iyer and KL Rahul will return to the team and after that it will be difficult for them to make a place in the team. The way he bats, we all have seen him, he has many high risk options and he only looks for boundaries due to which he loses his wicket.

He further said, ‘Playing risky shots increases your chances of getting out, especially in this format, they have to change this, you cannot hit a boundary every two-third ball in this format. He got many starts in ODIs but could not convert them into big scores. He needs to rectify this thing in ODIs.
Talking about Suryakumar Yadav’s ODI career, in the 25 ODIs he has played so far, he has scored 476 runs with an average of just 23.8. During this, his strike rate has been 100.42. Surya has scored the only half-century in ODI cricket.

Rahul Dravid also said about Surya after the second ODI, ‘Look, I think Surya is a really good player. It doesn’t have any message. His performances show, especially in T20 cricket, and even in domestic cricket, in white-ball cricket, he has produced some very good performances. Unfortunately, I think and even he will be the first to admit that his ODI figures may not be up to his own high standards or the standards he sets in T20s, but he is probably learning about ODI cricket ‘
