Former Indian cricketer Ajit Agarkar has questioned Suryakumar Yadav’s shot selection after his dismissal in the game against Punjab Kings. He had had a string of low scores in the IPL 2021 so far. , Surya scored 5, 8 and 0 in his last three innings including his duck against Punjab Kings. He is a part of India’s T20 World Cup squad but his recent form might well make the selectors think of axing him along with Ishan Kishan.

Talking to Star Sports during the mid-innings break, Ajit Agarkar criticised Suryakumar Yadav for his shot selection. He was bowled by a googly from Ravi Bishnoi as he misjudged to pick the length of the ball early. Agarkar also expressed surprise over Suryakumar’s lack of confidence at the moment.

“It was nothing shot from Suryakumar Yadav (when he got out). Everyone goes through bad patches. But you still want to try and bat a few balls. Just look so short of confidence, Suryakumar Yadav at the moment. This must be a worry for them. He needs to spend some time on the pitch,” Agarkar said on Star Sports.

“If you bat certain number of balls, and if you have the ability, the rhythm might come back. Today was a great chance, because the other pitches have been a lot tougher. So, it is certainly a little bit of worry because he has looked way short of form and confidence,” he added.

The former Indian pacer also went on to say that the form of SKY and Ishan Kishan is a cause of concern for the Indian cricket team ahead of the T20 World Cup next month. There is a huge expectation from India to win the title and their wobbly middle-order can pose problems if they are not in good form.

“Suryakumar has been in so good in form for India, and in past few IPLs, it’s just surprising how short he has looked in form and confidence. Ishan Kishan also, rightly left out in my opinion by MI. Yes, he has been part of the Indian team, but Saurabh Tiwary has looked good. And Mumbai had to win this game.”

“So they needed a couple of players in good form because Mumbai’s middle-order has looked quite fragile. But it is certainly a little bit of worry for India, because they have invested in these two guys, and at this point, they do not look great,” concluded Agarkar.
