Suryakumar yadav India vs New Zealand: After Sri Lanka, now the Indian team won the three-match ODI series against New Zealand at home with a clean sweep. In both these series, Indian star middle order batsman Suryakumar Yadav had a great opportunity to show his skills. But he could not redeem it.
Number-1 batsman Suryakumar is looking bad in the ODI format in T20 rankings. He has scored only 55 runs in 4 innings of the last 5 ODIs. After seeing this flop show of Surya in ODIs, his fans are worried that how he will be able to make his place in the ODI World Cup this year.
Surya’s overall ODI record is also bad
Surya’s overall record in ODIs is also not better. He has got a chance in 20 ODIs so far, in which he has not been able to show anything special. In these matches, Surya has scored only 433 runs at an average of 28.86. But looking at his flop performance against Sri Lanka and New Zealand, there is little hope of getting a chance in the next series.
Suryakumar’s cricket career
20 ODIs – 433 Runs, 2 Fifty
45 T20 Internationals – 1578 runs, 3 centuries
Now the next ODI series against Australia

After that, the Indian team will play a series of 4 Tests and three ODIs against Australia in their own home.
