Suryakumar Yadav shows his delight for Test cricket

Suryakumar Yadav

In limited overs cricket, Suryakumar Yadav has been a revelation for the Indian cricket squad, but the ODI Cricketer of the Year 2022 is yet to play in a Test match. His selection in the Test team for the Border-Gavaskar Trophy match against Australia represents the closest thing he has come to the red-ball game, despite the fact that numerous analysts have predicted that he will eventually develop into an all-format player.

However, Suryakumar has given a huge indication on his social media accounts ahead of the first Test beginning on February 9. With the caption “Hello Friend,” the aggressive batsman posted a photo of a brand-new red SG ball.

It would be up to Suryakumar to play the aggressor against the Australia bowlers since Rishabh Pant will miss the Test series due to the injuries he incurred in the accident.

Suryakumar is anticipated to bat at No. 6 if he is chosen, with KL Rahul likely to take the No. 5 spot, Cheteshwar Pujara at No. 3, Virat Kohli at No. 4, and the trio ahead of them. That will enable him to bat in the Indian middle order and, along with Ravindra Jadeja, give the hosts a powerful finish.

India and Australia’s first test match will begin on February 9 in Nagpur.
