Despite playing with supreme consistency in IPL 2020, Suryakumar Yadav could not earn a place in the Indian squad for the Australian tour. Many fans believe that he could have been a great middle-order batsman for the Indian team.
However, the bottom line remains that Yadav will have to wait for a little longer before donning the Indian jersey at the international level. Talking about his numbers in the IPL, Suryakumar amassed 480 runs in 16 matches for the Mumbai Indians. He played a fantastic role in the top order.
The rising star won the fans’ hearts with his gesture in the final match of the season. There was a slight misunderstanding between him and Rohit Sharma in the middle, but being a team player, Yadav gave up his wicket. That proved to be a good call because Rohit went on to play a match-winning knock for the Mumbai-based franchise.
Rohit Sharma became the first player to win the IPL trophy five times as a captain. He is also the only player to win the title across three decades and in three different countries. Meanwhile, Virat Kohli has not achieved the same success in the league.
Thus, there has been a debate on whether Rohit should replace Virat as the Indian cricket team captain. Some cricket experts feel that India should opt for split captaincy and allow The Hitman to lead the team in the limited overs formats.
Suryakumar Yadav likes a controversial tweet from his official Twitter account
The cricketers have been very active on social media after IPL 2020, and Suryakumar has landed himself in a controversy by liking a meme favoring Rohit Sharma.
The uncapped batsman has now unliked that tweet after the fans noticed his activity. But Crictracker.com got a screenshot of the same, which you can view here.
Earlier, Shivam Mavi had landed in a similar captaincy after he liked a meme which backed Eoin Morgan to replace Dinesh Karthik as KKR captain.
