Suryakumar Yadav is anticipated to take charge as the captain of the Indian cricket team for the upcoming T20 International series against Australia, according to reports from Cricbuzz. With several top-tier players expected to be rested, India faces a unique challenge as they gear up to compete in a five-match series set to kick off on November 23 at the Dr. Y.S.Rajashekar Reddy ACA-VDCA International Cricket Stadium – Visakhapatnam.
Hardik Pandya, the designated T20 captain, is unlikely to play the series due to an ankle injury sustained during a World Cup match against Bangladesh. The absence of Pandya adds to India’s roster woes, particularly after their defeat in the World Cup final on Sunday, where they fell short against Australia.
The Indian team, already dealing with the disappointment of the World Cup loss, now faces the task of regrouping under the potential leadership of Suryakumar Yadav. The dynamic batsman, known for his aggressive style of play, is expected to bring a fresh perspective to the captaincy role, steering the team through what promises to be a challenging series.
