Suryakumar was added in the Indian playing XI during the third ODI match against SriLanka. However, he failed to get going and scored just four runs. Yadav got his lucky breakthrough as Iyer got injured for ODI series against NewZealand. Batting at No 5 position, the right-handed batter played well for his 31 runs but perished when he looked set.

  • Suryakumar will be itching to make a mark in the second ODI against NewZealand.
  • The batter will try to improve his records in the 50-over format.
  • Suryakumar has represented India in 18 ODI matches.
  • In those games, he has amassed 419 runs at an average of almost 30.
  • Just like in T20s, the right-handed batter does not let the bowlers settle. Yadav plays at a strike rate of  100.52.
  • He also has stroked two fifties in the 50-over format with 64 being his highest.

Suryakumar has already shown the world how lethal he can be when it comes to the T20 format, but now he will have to make name for himself in the 50-over format. With Rahul missing out from the action and Kishan doing the wicketkeeping duties, Yadav has a perfect opportunity to prove himself in the 50-over format.

Meanwhile, the Men in Blue will look to continue its impressive run in the 50-over format in the second ODI encounter.

  • Shubman Gill and Rohit Sharma will continue to open the batting. Gill scored a double century to put the opening debate to rest.
  • Ishan Kishan will bat at No.4 and don the gloves in KL Rahul’s absence.Virat Kohli is immovable at No.3
  •  Yadav will be at No.5, with Hardik Pandya and Washington Sundar to follow.
  • Kuldeep Yadav will keep Yuzvendra Chahal on the bench after a stellar return.
  • Mohammed Siraj and Mohammad Shami will form the pace attack.
  • Shardul Thakur struggled, and Umran Malik could return the side.
  • Rajat Patidar meanwhile will have to wait for his debut.
