In a disappointing turn of events, Suryakumar Yadav, Team India’s dynamic batter, has failed to make his mark in the ongoing three-match ODI series against Australia, bagging golden ducks in the first two fixtures. His poor form has prompted former wicketkeeper-batter Saba Karim to question his place in the playing XI, suggesting that Shreyas Iyer could replace him once fully fit.
