3 min read

Suryakumar Yadav is leading the home side in the ongoing IND vs AUS T20 series after Hardik Pandya got ruled out due to an ankle injury.

Suryakumar Yadav started his captaincy stint with a quickfire fifty in IND vs AUS 1st T20I in Visakhapatnam. Leading the Men in Blue in Hardik Pandya’s absence, SKY hit a 29-ball fifty to put India in a commanding position in 209-run chase.

Yadav said, “We will bowl first. The wicket looks good, dew should come later and should make the pitch better. It’s a little difficult, but there’s always light at the end of the tunnel. Lots of positives and looking forward to the series. The guys have played a lot of franchise and domestic cricket, just told them to express and enjoy themselves. Washington, Shivam and Avesh are sitting out.
