Surya Kumar Yadav was not selected in the Indian cricket team for the Australia tour. His exclusion for the upcoming Australia tour has surprised Indian cricket fans. Surya Kumar Yadav is one of the consistent run-scorer in the IPL 2020 and has done well in domestic cricket. In spite of this performance, He didn’t get his maiden national call for the Indian cricket team.
However, the Selection committee led by Sunil Joshi announced India’s ODI, T20, and Test squads but didn’t pick him in any squad. His exclusion has created a furor on social media. Cricket fans and experts are showing their disappointment for not selecting him in the T20 squad for the Australia tour.
Now, Indian cricket team head coach Ravi Shastri opens up on Surya Kumar Yadav’s exclusion from Team India. Earlier, Ravi Shastri praised him for his match-winning knock against Royal Challengers Bangalore (RCB). Shastri wrote on Twitter, Be patient, and wait for the opportunity.
In an exclusive interview with Times Now, Ravi Shastri said, “That’s why we say to these youngsters – be patient. Like Suryakumar there are 3-4 other players on the fringe but when you have a team that is packed with talent and experience it becomes very difficult to get in.”
“I remember the period in my career when 1-6 in the Indian batting line-up everyone was certain of their places and it was difficult for anyone to penetrate that middle-order and yet you had some people who were scoring tons of runs in domestic cricket and knocking at the door,” Shastri stated.
