Aakash Chopra, a former cricketer for India, has questioned the handling of bowling resources by Suryakumar Yadav in the third T20I between India and Australia. The Men in Blue set the Aussies a huge target of 223 runs after being asked to bat first in Guwahati on Tuesday. The visitors chased down the score off the final delivery with five wickets to spare to keep the five-match series alive, with India leading 2-1.
Reviewing the game in a video shared on his YouTube channel, Chopra opined that calculation mistakes could potentially cost India the match. He explained, “Axar Patel bowled the 19th over. Prasidh Krishna was extremely expensive, but he bowled the 18th and 20th overs. India still did not use six bowlers. Prasidh Krishna went for 68 runs, but you got him to bowl because you didn’t even try to use a sixth bowler.”
The former India opener added, “Axar was bowling extremely well, but you held him back for the 19th over. Why did you hold him back? I have no idea. Huge error in calculation because you did not use a sixth bowler, got a spinner to bowl the 19th over, and Prasidh Krishna to bowl the 18th and 20th overs, and you got hit a lot.”
