Suryakumar Yadav knows he has to do well, will get a longer run: Rohit Sharma
Visakhapatnam: India captain Rohit Sharma on Sunday said right-handed batter Suryakumar Yadav, who has struggled to find his mojo in one-day cricket after a dazzling run in T20 format, knows that he has to perform well, and the team management will give him a longer run.
Suryakumar was dismissed in identical manner in the first two ODIs against Australia — trapped leg-before off in-swinging deliveries from Mitchell Starc on first balls he faced — with his barren run in the format now stretching further. The contest on Sunday was Suryakumar’s 16th ODI without a fifty, with an unbeaten 34 against New Zealand his highest score.
Suryakumar had walked out at No. 4, a spot vacated by Shreyas Iyer, who is out due to a back injury with no set timeline for return.
