Why was Suryakumar Yadav flopped in ODI? Explained Aakash Chopra

The first T20 between India and Australia was played on November 23 at the Visakhapatnam ground. India registered a spectacular win in this game. Indian cricket team captain Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan scored brilliant half-centuries against Australia. Both played an important role in the team’s victory by forming a 110-run partnership for the third wicket. Suryakumar Yadav was seen in a different form during this time. After the match, Aakash Chopra explained why Suryakumar Yadav becomes a hit in the T20 format and flopped in the ODI format.

Why was Suryakumar Yadav flopped in ODI

While speaking on his YouTube channel, Aakash Chopra said,

“Surya is considered a different player in T20. He can bat so well in this format because of how his mindset has become. I don’t think there is anything wrong with Surya only playing T20 cricket. Its DNA was set like T20 cricket. He plays T20 cricket according to the conditions.”

Akash further said,

“Surya can only remain a T20 cricketer. It would be better for him to focus only on T20 cricket for the next 6 months. I feel we should not lose a T20 rockstar in the search for a player who can play in all three formats.”

Suryakumar Yadav, who has made waves in T20 cricket, completely flops when he comes to ODI. Suryakumar Yadav’s bat failed to do anything special in the recently held ODI World Cup. He batted in 7 innings and scored only 106 runs at an average of 17. The highest score was 49. At the same time, Surya played an amazing game in the first T20 against Australia. He scored 80 runs in 42 balls.
