Pune: The second match of the three-game ODI series between India and England will be played at MCA Stadium in Pune. Suryakumar Yadav, who made a meteoric debut in T20, could have the opportunity to make his One Day International debut in place of Shreyas Iyer. Shreyas Iyer was excluded from the ODI series against England due to a shoulder injury.
Suryakumar can prove to be an asset
Suryakumar Yadav scored 57 points in the fourth game of the T20 series against England, while in the fifth game he scored 32 points. Like T20, in 50-overs cricket, Suryakumar Yadav may prove to be India’s trump card.
Indian stick will gain strength at number 4
Suryakumar Yadav scored 2,779 points in 98 matches in List A, which spans 17 half centuries and 3 centuries. Suryakumar Yadav’s game will strengthen the Indian stick at number 4. Yadav confirmed his claim by brilliantly playing T20 cricket.
Shikhar Dhawan is in good shape
Other than that, the biggest relief for India was the return to form of Shikhar Dhawan, who scored 98 points in the opener. After coming out of the T20 series, there was a lot of pressure on him to perform well. Rohit Sharma injured his elbow in the first match. After giving Rohit a break, Shubman Gill can open the sets with Dhawan in Game 2. In such a situation, Rahul will enter the middle order. It is believed that Pant will play as the drummer and Rahul will make the wicket. Chinese bowler Kuldeep Yadav gave up 68 points in nine rounds in Game 1, replacing leg thrower Yuzvendra Chahal.
