On dropping Suryakumar Yadav for the Australia tour, Ravi Shastri said it is difficult to get into a team that is highly talented and experienced. He said that the youth should be positive and work on their game so that they can grab it when the opportunity comes.
Suryakumar Yadav notched up 512 runs in 14 games for Mumbai Indians There were more than 133 strikes in IPL 2018 and again, he scored 424 runs in 16 matches last season at a strike rate of over 130. In the current season, he once again played an important role of 374 runs in the success of MI. 13 games so far at a strike rate of over 153. Considering his performance, it came as a big surprise when he was not included in the squad for the Australian tour, which caused a huge stir among cricket fans.
Head coach of india Ravi Shastri, Who had earlier praised SKY on Twitter after a match-winning innings of 79 from 43 balls against RCB, finally broke his silence over Suryakumar’s absence for the Australia tour. Shastri said that the Indian team is currently full of talent and there is no place for the right hand to make the cut. He went on to give an example of his own playing days and said that there were players who were scoring runs as well as runs, but did not get a chance as the Indian batting lineup was packed.
Shastri said, “That’s why we say to these youngsters- be patient. Like Suryakumar there are 3-4 other players, but when you have a team, which is full of talent and it becomes very difficult to get experience. , “Shastri said interview with Times Now.
“I remember a period in my career when everyone had their own place in Indian batting instead of 1-6 and it was difficult for anyone to penetrate that middle order and yet you had some people who scored tons Domestic cricket and knocking at the door. ”
Over the years, SKY has been quite flexible with his batting position, having played in several roles for Mumbai. Prior to this season, he was often in the role of a floater, where he excelled and finished the game for his team. Therefore, he was handed the No. 3 position this season, where again he showed his versatility.
Shastri suggested that players like Suryakumar need to stay positive and work on their game to ensure that they create the most opportunities when they get in their way.
“I have a message for all young people – be patient and hold it with both hands when you get a chance. This is not the time to be messed up. Instead of getting frustrated, be positive in your mindset when you get the opportunity. Shastri said, If you look at this team, which is left to any player in the batting line-up, then you are asking how they are released.
