Pune, March 25 (PTI) Extraordinary talent-rich Suryakumar Yadav may get a chance to make his debut in one-day cricket through the second match against England here on Friday, while India are eyeing another series through this match Will be engaged
Shreyas Iyer has been ruled out of the series due to a shoulder ligament. In such a situation, the focus is on Yadav and his debut in ODI cricket. Yadav has made his claim in T20 cricket with a brilliant debut.
Before the Corona epidemic, Shreyas was one of the most important players of the Indian ODI team, but India’s ‘bench strength’ is so strong that the player now going to debut also looks dangerous for the World Champion team.
The selection management will have a dilemma in front of the team management, including captain Virat Kohli. Ravindra Jadeja has been out of the team for three months but Akshar Patel in Test and Krunal Pandya in ODIs did not allow him to miss them. The famous Krishna, who became famous due to IPL, took four wickets with a spectacular performance with his debut in ODI cricket.
On the return of Jadeja and Jaspreet Bumrah, one of Krunal or Krishna will have to stay out. The biggest relief for India was Shikhar Dhawan’s return to form, who scored 98 runs. He was under a lot of pressure to perform well after being left out of the T20 series.

Rohit Sharma suffered an elbow injury in the first match but is expected to be fit. Shubman Gill can open the innings with Dhawan in the second match after giving Rohit a break. In this way, Rahul will go into the middle order. According to sources, Rohit’s injury is not serious and he is keen to play.
It is believed that Pant will play as a batsman and Rahul will be wicketkeeping. Chinaman bowler Kuldeep Yadav gave 68 runs in nine overs in the first match, replacing leg-spinner Yuzvendra Chahal.
The sharp trio of Bhuvneshwar Kumar, Krishna and Shardul Thakur took nine wickets out of ten and would like to maintain this rhythm. Thakur is playing continuously and T Natarajan or Mohammed Siraj can be fielded for diversity.
Kohli said after the first match, “This is one of our best wins. We haven’t played so many good matches in the recent past. I am very proud.”
On the other hand, England will try to stay in the series by winning this match. Skipper Eoin Morgan and batsman Sam Billings’s injury in the first match has added to their woes. Johnny Bairstow and Jason Roy did well and would be expected to repeat it.
The middle order could not perform as per its ability. Ben Stokes, Jose Butler and Moeen Ali failed. If England want to score big, then all three will have to play a good innings.
On the other hand, spinners Adil Rashid and Moin could not bother the Indian batsmen and both did not get wickets. Tom Curren will have to join his brothers Sam and Mark Wood in the fast bowling.
India: Virat Kohli (captain), Rohit Sharma (vice-captain), Shikhar Dhawan, Shubman Gill, Suryakumar Yadav, Hardik Pandya, Rishabh Pant (wicketkeeper), KL Rahul (wicket keeper), Yuzvendra Chahal, Kuldeep Yadav, Krunal Pandya, Washington Sundar , T.
