Every position in the team is up for grabs, and with the ODI World Cup just eight months away, no player is certain. India’s batting coach, Vikram Rathour, spoke out about the ODI omission for the home series against Sri Lanka.

According to Ishan Kishan and Suryakumar Yadav, scoring a double hundred in an ODI match and consistently scoring in white-ball cricket could almost certainly guarantee a player a long run in the playing XI. But things have changed.

Every position in the team is up for grabs, and with the ODI World Cup just eight months away, no player is certain.

Despite Sri Lanka’s unassailable 2-0 lead in the three-game series, India’s batting coach Vikram Rathour has spoken out about the ODI omission for the series against Sri Lanka at home. Suryakumar Yadav and Ishan Kishan absolutely “understand” that.

With captain Rohit Sharma out with an injury. He scored a record-breaking double-century in only his previous game, against Bangladesh.

Suryakumar, on the other hand, has been consistent in the white-ball format. Particularly in Twenty20 Internationals, where he is ranked No. the one batter In the T20Is against Sri Lanka. He also scored a century, continuing his incredible form from 2023.

However, Shubman Gill and KL Rahul were left out of the Sri Lanka series ODI playing XI in order to make room for them. Rathour broke his silence about the call when he spoke to the media prior to the final ODI in Kerala.

He explained that because “others are doing good as well,” they “need to wait for their opportunity.” Veteran cricketers and fans were furious about the call.

He has been chosen to start, but because our batting order is flexible. We might have to try someone like Ishan in the middle order if we need to.

When the discussion turned to Surya, the batting coach made the observation. “He has great potential, he has been in great form.”

It is wonderful to have him on the reserve team, and I hope that when the time comes. He will make the most of it and perform admirably for the team. The team is fortunate to have such a versatile player.
