Fans on Twitter reacted after Indian skipper Rohit Sharma backs Suryakumar Yadav despite a poor run in ODIs, saying that the batter has potential and will be given a longer run. They correlated the statement with what he used for KL Rahul before dropping him from the Test side and speculated that the same will happen with Suryakumar.
Rohit Sharma backs Suryakumar Yadav after he bags two consecutive golden ducks in the ODI series against Australia
The ongoing series between India and Australia has been a torrid one for Suryakumar Yadav. The batter has failed to score runs in both games and has revived a lot ok skewering for his performances.
In both games, Suryakumar was trapped in lbw by Mitchell Starc for a golden duck. The in-swinging delivery of the left-arm pacer has troubled him. In the two games, the batter tried to go for an on-drive and was beaten on the inside edge. The ball struck him below the knee roll on the front pad adjacent to the sticks.
It’s fair to say that Suryakumar has failed to replicate his T20 heroics in the ODIs and his place too has come under scrutiny, especially with Sanju Samson on the sidelines not getting chances.
Following all the criticism, skipper Rohit Sharma has come out in support of Suryakumar Yadav. The opener said that they will back the batter as he has potential. Speaking to reporters, he said:
“Surya has shown potential in white ball but he knows he needs to do well in ODI as I said, if one has potential, we need to give consistent run – with Iyer injured, the place is vacant so he is getting a long run”.

The vacant place was never filled with someone deserving as @BCCI looked the other way.
Samson has 330 ODI runs in 10 inn, 2 50s with 66 avg at 102 SR without a consistent run.Advertisement
Yes, not outs played a role in his avg but his 3 NO scores were 43, 86, 30 out of 5. https://t.co/ZbQN3vABh9
