NEW DELHI: The kind of success that Suryakumar Yadav has enjoyed in T20Is so far has not been seen in ODIs and what has added to his troubles is a double golden duck in the first two ODIs against Australia.
Former Indian player and great cricketer Sunil Gavaskar Has a piece of advice for the struggling Surya who was caught in front of the Aussie pacer Mitchell Starc on both the occasions.
Speaking to Star Sports after India were bundled out for 117 at the ACA-VDCA Cricket Stadium in Visakhapatnam, Gavaskar raised concerns about Surya’s batting approach, which he feels is good for T20 cricket but not suitable for ODIs. In the U.S., they will always be at risk of being declared LWB.
“He is facing technical difficulties. Also his stance is open. It is good for T20 cricket because any delivery which is pitched higher, he can flick it for a six. But here, when If the ball is pitched right near leg, then from this stance the bat will definitely come out. It cannot come straight. So, if the ball turns inward, he will face difficulty. He will have to take time with the batting coach. Need to spend how he comes out of it.”
