Suryakumar Yadav, who made his international debut in the 2nd T20I against England, was left in favour of Rohit Sharma for the 3rd game. Former England spinner Graeme Swann named the axing as one of the harshest decisions he has ever seen on a cricket ground.

Suryakumar Yadav wasn’t necessary to bat in the 2nd game, as India won by seven wickets. So, his exception in the 3rd game was all the more confusing.

Speaking on Star Sports, Graeme Swann revealed the sympathy for the Mumbai Indians star but confirmed that Team India was desperate to hear the combination of KL Rahul and Rohit Sharma at the top of the order. Swann said in accordingly:

“I want to give a big shout-out to Yadav. Making his debut, not getting a chance to bat and then getting dropped. That’s one of the harshest things I have ever seen. But you’ve got to understand why they are doing it because they are desperate for Sharma and Rahul to get some form and games under their belts.”

KL Rahul‘s form is an interest for the Indian squad management, as the Karnataka batsman has scored just one run in 3 games this series. He could very good make way for Suryakumar Yadav for the following match.

Aakash Chopra question who knowledgeable Suryakumar Yadav about his axing

Former India opener Aakash Chopra also noted that the ruling to drop Suryakumar Yadav after the 2nd T20I was harsh. Chopra wondered who delivered the message to the 30-year-old about his axing in the 3rd game.

I’m still wondering who was the guy who delivered the message to Suryakumar Yadav that after your debut and not getting to bat, you’re not playing the next game.” Chopra added.

This series will go too far in establishing the composition of the Indian team in the coming T20 World Cup end of this year. Suryakumar Yadav will hope he takes an additional chance in the remains of the series to help him stake his claim for a place in the tournament.
