1983 World Cup-winning cricketer Krishnamachari Srikant has sent a shocking public apology to Suryakumar Yadav after being dropped from India’s XI against Sri Lanka in the first ODI in Guwahati. .
“And Surya, I’m sorry, I feel sorry for you. Suryakumar Yadav is not in the team? Look at the top five, who are the influential players? Who can win the match?” away from the opposition?” Former Chief Selector Krishnamachari Srikant told Star Sports:
Krishnamachari Srikant’s comments have frustrated many former cricketers and fans after captain Rohit Sharma’s decision not to include Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan in the starting line-up against Sri Lanka. rice field.
Surya has been a ferocious performer in whiteball cricket, especially T20Is.
With his third and final T20I final knock against Sri Lanka at Rajkot, Suryakumar Yadav scored his third T20I ton, breaking multiple world records in the process.
Surya broke Sri Lankan bowling apart in a stunning exhibition of 360-degree batting at the Saurastra Cricket Association (SCA) Stadium.
Showing why he ranks first in T20I cricket, Suryakumar Yadav, or SKY as it is affectionately called, he shot an unbeaten 112 off 51 balls, including nine sixes and sevens boundaries, leading India to 228. Pushed up to a huge total of /5.
In just seven months since hitting 100 RBIs in the game against England in July, it is the third ton for the T20Is, a center hitter. In his century against Sri Lanka, Suryakumar Yadav became the first non-opener in his T20I history where he hit a third century.
Along the way, SKY also became the fastest to complete 1,500 runs in the sport’s shortest format.
In his 45 T20Is so far, the 32-year-old cricketer has scored 1,578 runs, averaging 46.41 and a staggering strike rate of 180.34. In his short career in India, Suryakumar Yadav has already broken his three centuries and his 1350s.
However, it should be noted that unlike his utter dominance in T20Is, Suryakumar Yadav has not been as successful in ODI. In his 16 games in his 50 overs so far in his format, the 32-year-old has only scored in his two-and-a-half century, averaging a staggering 32. His strike his rate is also not that impressive as it is barely above the 100 mark.
Suryakumar Yadav wasn’t among the 11 Indian men to beat Sri Lanka in Assam, but he was still involved in the game.
After the match, SKY had the chance to interview the great Virat Kohli, who scored his 45th ODI 100 at the Barsapara Cricket Stadium.
Their exchange began with a playful note, with Surya reminding the 34-year-old hitter that it was Kohli who interviewed him a few days earlier, the opposite.
Naye saal mein, merko Opportunity mil raha hai aapka interview rene ka. Thank you jo bhi mujhe ye opportunity diya In 2018, I have the opportunity to interview you. Thank you to whoever gave me this opportunity,” Suryakumar Yadav said in the clip. .
Suryakumar Yadav then spoke about Virat Kohli’s extended lean patch, a bat that lasted nearly three years.
“RBI has been floating out of the plate for about four or five years, but in the last year or two (there was a dip), what can you do in the meantime and get paid off again in 2023? Did you?” SKY, who was not part of the side in the first game, asked Virat Kohli.
In response to Surya, Virat Kohli revealed that after repeated failures, frustration crept into his mind and even reduced his intensity in practice sessions.
“I said the same thing[in the presentation]after the game. When going, people think ‘Surya will do it’. Keeping up with it is a very intense process. Jab tak aapka cricket accha chal raha hota hai, form accha hota hai, these flow well. Because I wanted to play my way. I wanted to live up to expectations, but cricket wouldn’t let me. It was a challenging period. So I stepped away from the game plan,” said Virat Kohli.
“My obsessions, my desires were completely hijacked. That’s when I realized I couldn’t leave who I am. I have to be honest with myself.” Even when I’m vulnerable I’m not playing well I’m the worst player around I have to accept that I can’t deny it I’m not good at all Like Anushka It wasn’t fair to my close friends, and it wasn’t fair for the people who always supported you to keep seeing you on the spot. We had to,” concludes Virat Kohli.
