Ever since the Indian team was announced for the tour of Australia, Mumbai Indians batsman Suryakumar Yadav has been in the news ever since. After this, the Indian cricket team selectors are facing all round criticism due to their unbeaten 79 against Royal Challengers Bangalore.
Actually, Suryakumar has been doing well for Mumbai Indians in IPL continuously since last three years. Along with this, his performance in domestic cricket has also been good. But still they have not been invited from the floor. Many former cricketers have also raised questions about this.
Even though fans and former cricketers are now praising Suryakumar and advocating feeding him in Team India. But Rohit Sharma, the Indian team’s opener, predicted him to become a star in 2011.
A 9-year-old tweet from Rohit is becoming increasingly viral right now. In this tweet, Rohit had praised Suryakumar Yadav fiercely and described him as a future star. Rohit made this tweet in Chennai after the BCCI Award was over.
Rohit wrote in his tweet, “The BCCI Award has just finished in Chennai. Some great players are going to come. You will see Suryakumar Yadav of Mumbai in future.”
