Suryakumar Yadav, considered the world’s first 360-degree batsman after South African opener AB de Villiers, made his debut in the Nagpur Test of the Border Gavaskar Trophy. With this he created history. He got a chance to play his first match in all three formats at the age of 30. He was preferred over young opener Shubman Gill. A big inning was expected from him, but he could not do anything special and got out after scoring 8 runs.
When Suryakumar Yadav opened the account by hitting a four, Ravi Shastri, who was commenting, also started tying bridges of praise. The shot itself was like this. Suryakumar Yadav opened the account by sweeping Murphy’s ball outside the boundary with the help of spin. It seemed that he would bat in Nagpur in the style of T20, but after that he slowed down a bit and then got out after scoring 8 runs.
Surya was clean bowled by Australian spinner Nathan Lyon in the 60th over. Surya was completely gutted by Lion’s ball. Actually, he wanted to hit the cover drive, while there was a lot of turn after the ball fell and Surya could not judge it accurately. There was a huge gap between his bat and pad. The ball very easily entered between the two and took the stumps.

This ball of Lion reminded me of the ball of the century by the great Shane Warne. The ball had got so much turn that Surya, who is considered to be a PhD in playing spin, could not understand. In this way, the lackluster innings of debutant Suryakumar Yadav came to an end. Earlier, even Virat Kohli could not do anything special with the bat and after scoring 12 runs, he was caught by Alex Carey off Murphy’s bowling.
