Suryakumar Yadav should take note of Rohit Sharma’s massive World Cup announcement about Shreyas Iyer’s fitness.

Must Read

Shreyas Iyer has recently resumed batting in the nets and is likely to be available for the Asia Cup.India’s injury woes have cost them critical matches in the recent year, including the Asia Cup and T20 World Cup in 2022, as well as the WTC final last June. Concerns about the return of KL Rahul and Shreyas Iyer continue as the squad prepares for the Asia Cup, which begins at the end of this month, with Jasprit Bumrah set to return in the Ireland T20I series that precedes it.Prior to the release of the roster for the continental event, India captain Rohit Sharma delivered an extensive update on Iyer, putting Suryakumar Yadav’s status in jeopardy.While it was expected that Iyer and Rahul would return for the Asia Cup after the BCCI revealed that “they have resumed batting in the nets and are currently undergoing strength and fitness drills” in their medical update a fortnight ago, Cricbuzz reported last week that the batting duo are unlikely to be picked in the squad, which is expected to be announced soon. However, Rohit’s most recent update on Iyer validated the report’s assessment about their World Cup chances. During a live Instagram event in the United States on Sunday, the India captain was asked about Iyer’s fitness, and Rohit gave an encouraging update while also adding that he hopes the batter heals in time for the World Cup.”Shreyas Iyer is on track to full fitness, so fingers crossed for the World Cup,” he stated.Suryakumar Yadav has been issued a red alert.When Iyer was out due to injury earlier this year, India saw it as an ideal opportunity to capitalise on Suryakumar’s T20I form in the ODI format. Following a storming 2022 season, the India hitter had lately reached to the top of the ICC standings in T20I batting. It was also an excellent opportunity for Suryakumar to establish himself as India’s No.4 for the ODI World Cup.The 32-year-old, though, failed to replicate his T20I performance in the 50-over format, amassing just 127 runs in nine innings with no half-centuries and a hat-trick of ducks. He scored 45 runs in six matches against New Zealand and Australia prior to the IPL. With Iyer’s return date still on hold and Suryakumar rebounding from a three-duck slump to score good knocks in the IPL, India stayed with the strategy in the West Indies tour, but the batter only scored 78 runs in three innings.With Iyer allegedly out of the Asia Cup, India may be forced to rely on Suryakumar for one more match, giving him one last chance to prove his value before the ODI World Cup
