IND VS AUS: Ever since the stellar performances of Suryakumar Yadav, there has been a lot of backing for him to play test matches. Suryakumar Yadav’s dream to play a test match may finally come true. BCCI’s 2-match squad for upcoming Ind vs Aus has been announced with Suryakumar Yadav a part of it. While some do not believe that it was a good move to include Suryakumar Yadav but Mohammad Azharuddin is optimistic about it.

Mohammad Azharuddin, in an interview with PTI, outlined the reasons why the hosts cannot currently stand to leave a talent like Yadav from any squad. Suryakumar Yadav earned the call-up for the Indian side in 2021 after his diligent performances in the Indian Premier League. Irrespective of his T20 game is great, in the longer format, Yadav has not been that impactful.

IND VS AUS: Mohammad Azharuddin backs Suryakumar Yadav to do well in test matches

Ind vs Aus: Mohammad Azharuddin Calls Suryakumar Yadav 3-Format Player

IND VS AUS: “When the player is in form, it’s not right to have them on the bench. Suryakumar Yadav has the potential to play for the Indian team in all three formats. He has also done well in his last Ranji match. After a long time, India has got such a batsman who can play in all formats,” Mohammad Azharuddin said.

In December 2022, Yadav had expressed his desire to represent India in the longest format of the game. Apart from Suryakumar Yadav, Ishan Kishan also is part of the squad. “Ishan Kishan has been selected in the Indian Test team on his recent form. I think he will be a stronger contender for the wicket-keeper batsman option. He is a left-handed batsman,” he added.

The Ind vs Aus series beginning on February 4 is an important series for India. India’s place in the finals of the World Test Championships will depend on these 4 matches. Rishabh Pant’s unavailability is a big blow to team India. It is highly possible that Ishan Kishan might find a spot for himself as the primary wicket-keeper batsman. As part of the WTC cycle 2021-2023, India visited Bangladesh to play 2 test games and won the series 2-0. The Ind vs Aus series will be the concluding bilateral of this cycle.

India’s squads for the first 2 Ind vs Aus games:

Rohit Sharma (Captain), KL Rahul (vice-captain), Shubman Gill, Cheteshwar Pujara, Axar Patel, Kuldeep Yadav, Ravindra Jadeja, Mohd. Shami, R. Ashwin, Mohd. Siraj, Umesh Yadav, Virat Kohli, Shreyas Iyer, KS Bharat (wk), Ishan Kishan (wk), Jaydev Unadkat, Suryakumar Yadav
