Twitterati Are Slamming Virat Kohli For Dropping Suryakumar Yadav

Last updated:

The Indian cricket fans were once again left perplexed by the decision-making of the Indian skipper and team-management after Suryakumar Yadav was dropped from the playing eleven for the ongoing third T20I against England.

It was last month when the swashbuckling batsman earned his maiden call-up for the ongoing five-match T20I series. After several setbacks and snubs from the national selectors, Suryakumar finally made his debut on the 2nd t20I against England.

Suryakumar has been a prolific run-scorer in domestic cricket as well as for Mumbai Indians in the three seasons that he has played for the franchise. He played an instrumental role in Mumbai Indian’s triumph during the 2020 Indian Premier League in the United Arab Emirates.  SKY had scored 480 runs in 16 games at an average of 40 and a strike-rate of 145.01.

However, despite making his debut, SKY didn’t get a chance to bat as the hosts won the game by seven wickets. And to everyone’s surprise, SKY was dropped by the team-management from the playing XI for the 3rd T20I to make room for Rohit Sharma, who was resting in the last two games.

Meanwhile, the fans on social media were not at all happy with the decision-making and took to Twitter to express their disappointment over the same. While some believe it was really harsh for SKY as he had to miss out despite not getting to bat in his debut match, on the other hand, many felt Kohli was unnecessarily trying to improve a balanced winning combination.
