Suryakumar Yadav will get more opportunities, but will have to perform better, says captain Rohit Sharma bluntly
indian captain Rohit Sharma said on Sunday that batsmen struggling to find rhythm in ODI cricket Suryakumar Yadav Knows that he has to perform well and the team management will give him frequent chances. Suryakumar could not even open the account in the first two ODIs against Australia. He has not been able to score a single half-century in the last 16 ODI innings. His highest score is 34 not out against New Zealand in this period.
India lost by 10 wickets in the second ODI
Rohit Sharma said after the defeat by ten wickets in the second ODI that we do not know about the return of Shreyas Iyer. His place is vacant, so we will field Suryakumar only. He has done very well in limited overs and I have said many times that those who have the ability will get opportunities. He said, ‘He knows that he has to perform well in ODIs as well. I have said that players with potential should never feel that they are not given enough opportunities.
Capable players will continue to get opportunities
He said that he got out early in the last two matches but he will have to give seven eight or ten matches in a row so that he becomes more comfortable. Right now he is getting a chance if someone is injured or not available. The job of the team management is to give opportunities to the players and when they feel that they are not comfortable or runs are not being scored, then they will think about it. We are not on that path yet. Rohit also said that the team has got used to playing without fast bowler Jasprit Bumrah.
Team got used to playing without Bumrah
He said, ‘Bumrah is not in the team for the last eight months. I am missing it but now it has become a habit. Now he is not available, so cannot keep thinking about him. I think Siraj, Shami, Shardul have bowled well. We also have Umran and Unadkat.
