India vs New Zealand ODI Series: A day before the start of the ODI series against New Zealand, Team India has suffered a major setback. Indian team’s middle order batsman Shreyas Iyer has been ruled out of the entire series due to a back injury. In such a situation, the team management has included Rajat Patidar in the team as his back-up. Shreyas being out of the ODI series can be dangerous for him personally. In his absence, now Suryakumar Yadav is sure to get a chance in the playing XI. Surya is currently in excellent form. If his bat works in the ODI series against New Zealand, then Shreyas Iyer’s return will be difficult.
Surya is in great form
Suryakumar Yadav is currently in tremendous form. He scored a lot of runs in the T20 series against Sri Lanka. In two matches of that series, he was successful in scoring a century and a half-century. Suryakumar has scored three centuries in T20 International in the last six months. Last year, he scored the highest 1164 runs in T20 International. This year also he made a great debut in T20. So far he has scored a century and a half-century in three matches. He was part of the ODI team against Sri Lanka. Shreyas has had a better performance than Suryakumar Yadav in ODIs. That’s why he did not get many chances in ODIs. But now Surya has a chance to make a permanent place in the ODI team as well.
Iyer’s return will be difficult
It is true that Suryakumar Yadav, who made a splash in T20 International, has not yet been able to confirm his place in the ODI team. The ODI series against New Zealand will be important for them. In the absence of Shreyas Iyer, he is sure to join India’s playing XI during the ODI series. If during this time he is successful in batting as fast as in T20, then Shreyas’s leaf can be cut from the ODI team. By the way, Surya has not been able to prove himself for ODI cricket. Suryakumar, who made his ODI debut in July 2021, has not been able to score a fifty in the last 10 ODIs. About a year ago, on 9 February 2022, he scored a half-century in the last ODI against the West Indies in Ahmedabad. Overall, by performing better against New Zealand, he has a great chance to secure a place in the ODI team.
