Mumbai: The third and final ODI against Australia is scheduled to take place on Wednesday at the Chennai-Chepakkam stadium. The team that wins this match will also win the series. In this context, former Indian player Wasim Jaffer has suggested that Sanju Samson may be given a chance to replace Suryakumar in the third ODI.
In the first two ODIs against the Australian team, Suryakumar Yadav lost his wicket after getting out for no run in the first ball. He lost his wicket twice in the series to Australia’s stark pace. In this case, Wasim Zafar has said this.
“We can sympathize with Suryakumar Yadav after seeing his wicket loss in this series. Facing a player like Starc, a left-arm bowler who bowls at 145+ kmph, is a challenge. No doubt about it. He will look to attack the stumps. It is known. But when Suryakumar faced it again, he should have been prepared for it.
It remains to be seen whether the team management gives him a chance in the third match. At the same time, Sanju Samson can be given a chance in the team. It certainly wouldn’t be a bad option. “He has performed well whenever he has been given an opportunity in the team,” said Wasim Jafar.
However, Sanju Samson was not included in the Indian squad for this series. At the same time, it seems that Suryakumar will definitely be given a chance in the playing eleven in the third match. Because captain Rohit Sharma was talking about it. “Surely Suryakumar will be given more opportunities. He is a player who has shown his potential. So he will be given enough opportunities. With that, we hope that he will show his great performance again.
