Is India Overdependent on Suryakumar Yadav in T20Is

Team India’s 21-run defeat in the hands of New Zealand in the 1st T20I match in Ranchi has not only exposed the weak Indian death bowling but also the overdependency on Suryakumar Yadav in T20Is. As a matter of fact, this has been the pattern in most of the T20 international matches India has played. In the 49 T20 innings Surya has played, India has won 34 of those matches. He has 2 hundreds and has scored 1192 runs at an average of 51.82 in these 34 T20Is that India has won. 

India has lost 11 T20Is and the stats suggest that Suryakumar Yadav failed to score in these matches. He averages 38.8 and has an aggregate score of 420 runs in these matches with a century. Except for the T20 World Cup 2022 opening encounter against Pakistan, Surya’s failure has directly translated to the team’s failure in T20 international matches. 

How This Overdependency on Surya will Affect India in the Future?

The overdependency of the Indian T20I batting lineup on Suryakumar Yadav is a matter of concern even though the next T20 world cup is more than a year away. India needs players who can step up on days when Surya has an off day in the field. Currently, he is at the form of his life but during uncertain days, India will require the services of other players to pull off victories. Currently, Surya’s form is allowing the top-order and the lower-order to play freely which is leading to irresponsible and requisite shots. By the time the T20 World Cup in 2024 arrives, India will need a set of players as a single player cannot win the team the biggest event of T20 cricket.
