Team India, led by Rohit Sharma, has suffered several major setbacks in its series of three T20I games against Sri Lanka, which begins on Thursday. Deep pitcher Deepak Chahar and middle-class batsman Suryakumar Yadav were not included in the upcoming T20I series against Sri Lanka.
Deepak suffered right quadriceps injuries during bowling, while Suryakumar suffered a hair fracture during field training in the third and final T20I against the West Indies in Kolkata on Sunday.
The duo will now go to the National Cricket Academy in Bengaluru to further treat their injuries. The team management has already withdrawn Virat Kohli, Rishabh Pant and Shardul Thakur from the T20I series. Kohli and Pant join the team during the test series, while Shardul takes a break from the entire series against Sri Lanka.
In the last T20I match against Deepak Chahar, he started by eliminating Kyle Mayers and Shai Hope, but as the fifth ball bounced in the second, the seamstress rose and shook the field at his side. The Chennai Super Kings spent Rs 14 million to bring Deepak Chahar back to the IPL mega auction.
Suryakumar Yadav, who was in red-hot form smoked a 31-ball 65, including seven sixes. Yadav guided Venkatesh during an unbroken 91-run fifth-wicket partnership off 37 balls. Yadav’s command unnerved the West Indies bowlers, as they lost the plot and played into the batsmen’s hands. Yadav was adjudged the Man-of-the-Match and Man-of-the-Series.
