Suryakumar Yadav Named India Captain For T20I Series Against Australia


New Delhi: Suryakumar Yadav is set to lead the Indian cricket team in the upcoming five-match T20I series against Australia, commencing on November 23, 2023, in Visakhapatnam. The team undergoes a significant overhaul with several key players from the Cricket World Cup rested.

Ruturaj Gaikwad assumes the role of vice-captain for the series against the newly-crowned ODI champions. Only three players from the ODI Cricket World Cup 2023 squad, namely Prasidh Krishna, Ishan Kishan, and Suryakumar himself, have been included. However, Shreyas Iyer will join the squad for the last two T20Is in Raipur and Bengaluru, taking over the vice-captaincy from Gaikwad.

Thiruvananthapuram is set to host the second T20I, while Guwahati will be the venue for the third T20I.

Hardik Pandya, India’s star all-rounder who led the Men in Blue in several T20I series this year, will be absent due to an ankle injury sustained during the Cricket World Cup league stage match against Bangladesh. Sanju Samson is not included in the squad.

The upcoming T20I series will closely monitor the performances of players like Yashasvi Jaiswal, Tilak Varma, and Rinku Singh, as India embarks on a phase of introducing fresh faces with an eye on the 2024 T20 World Cup.

Bowlers selected include Arshdeep Singh, Avesh Khan, Mukesh Kumar, and Ravi Bishnoi, all with substantial T20 experience for India. Axar Patel, Washington Sundar, and Shivam Dubey serve as the all-rounders, while Jitesh Sharma is the backup wicketkeeper.

These chosen players, known for their stellar performances in the Indian Premier League, now face the opportunity to secure a lasting spot in the T20I format, given the BCCI selectors’ inclination to provide the younger generation an extended opportunity, especially with the focus on the T20 World Cup next year.
