Asia Cup 2023: ‘Bench SuryaKumar” Furious Fans Go After SKY After Yet Another Failure In ODI Game

Suryakumar Yadav’s struggles in One Day Internationals (ODIs) persisted as he faced yet another disappointing batting performance during India’s Super 4’s Asia Cup 2023 clash against Bangladesh in Colombo.

In this crucial fixture, Suryakumar could only manage to score 26 runs off 34 balls, failing to capitalize on the opportunity to gain confidence in this format. His downfall came at the hands of Shakib Al Hasan, who bowled him out while attempting a sweep shot.

Following Suryakumar’s dismissal, social media platforms buzzed with fans expressing their disappointment and trolling the batter for his ordinary outing.

Some Tweets after Suryakumar Yadav’s performance:


It’s worth noting that despite being ranked as the No.1 T20I batter in the ICC Rankings, his ODI performances have been consistently lacklustre. With just 537 runs from 25 innings at an average of 24.41, Suryakumar’s struggles in the 50-over format have raised questions.

In the match, India won the toss and chose to field first, with Shakib Al Hasan leading Bangladesh’s batting charge, scoring 80 runs. Bangladesh managed to reach a total of 265/8 after their allotted 50 overs. However, India’s run chase didn’t begin on an ideal note, as captain Rohit Sharma departed for a duck.

Debutant Tilak Varma, batting at No. 3, couldn’t make a significant impact, contributing only three runs to the team’s total. KL Rahul and Shubman Gill played crucial roles in stabilizing India’s innings with a 57-run partnership. But with the dismissals of Rahul and Ishan Kishan, the responsibility to anchor the innings fell on Suryakumar Yadav’s shoulders.

He managed to put together a 45-run partnership with Gill, offering hope to the Indian side. However, Bangladesh regained the upper hand after Suryakumar’s departure in the 33rd over. It’s important to note that this particular match held no bearing on the tournament’s outcome, as India had already secured their place in the Asia Cup 2023 final.

Bangladesh, on the other hand, had been eliminated from contention earlier. Despite this, the match provided an opportunity for players like Suryakumar Yadav to prove their mettle and potentially earn a more prominent role in the future of Indian ODI cricket.

In summary, while the Asia Cup Super 4’s match against Bangladesh may not have had immediate tournament implications, it highlighted the persistent issue of Suryakumar Yadav’s struggles in ODIs.

It serves as a reminder that even in the midst of a successful T20 career, the transition to the 50-over format can be a formidable challenge. Suryakumar’s journey in ODIs continues to be a narrative of unfulfilled potential, leaving fans and experts alike eagerly awaiting a breakthrough performance that could redefine his ODI career.
