Suryakumar Yadav has created a stir in the cricket world since his international debut. Playing explosive innings has become his addiction. In the third and final match of the 3-match T20I series (Sri Lanka vs India T20I Series, 2023) against the visiting Sri Lankan team in Rajkot, he scored 112 runs in just 51 balls and remained not out. India won the match by a huge margin of 91 runs under the captaincy of Hardik Pandya (Hardik Pandya Captain Team India IND vs SRL T20I Series, 2023) and also won the series 2-1.

Gautam Gambhir, the former opener of the Indian team, has advocated the inclusion of Suryakumar Yadav in the Test team. Gautam Gambhir said, “What an amazing batting, now the time has come to include him in the test..”
Remind you that before the T20 series against Sri Lanka, Suryakumar Yadav had played more than 90 innings in the two matches he played in Ranji Trophy Tournament 2022-23. And now in the third T20 against Sri Lanka, he has made his mark by scoring a tremendous century.
However, now it remains to be seen whether Suryakumar Yadav is given an opportunity to step into Test cricket in the Test series against Australia coming on India’s tour (Australia vs India Test Series, 2023). No.
