In a recent Twitter post, he posted a very serene picture of nature beautifully captured in mountains. The post captioned, “Watch out for these 3 in the series. #SLvIND.” The post intrigued different interests as the post had no relation to cricket.
IND vs SL 1st ODI: Wasim Jaffer cryptic Tweet: A close eye at the picture brings out three Indian players who have been brought out in the masked picture. Shikhar Dhawan, Prithvi Shaw, and Suryakumar Yadav are the players Jaffer wants fans to be watchful of in the upcoming series.
The mountains (Shikhar in Hindi), earth (Prithvi in Hindi) and sky (an acronym for Suryakumar Yadav) in the picture represented the three Indian players. The trio is likely to feature as Team India’s top-order batsmen in the upcoming series.
IND vs SL 1st ODI: Wasim Jaffer cryptic Tweet: Shikhar Dhawan hints of Suryakumar Yadav’s ODI debut
In a press conference on Sunday, Indian skipper Shikhar Dhawan sounded promising of Suryakumar making a likely chance for his ODI debut in the first clash against Sri Lanka in Colombo.
Talking about Suryakumar Yadav, Dhawan said: “Suryakumar Yadav is a great player. He has performed well in domestic and international matches. He is a very talented player, I am sure he will do well. He is in great touch.”
As of the opener alongside Shikhar, Prithvi Shaw has a likely chance. insidesport.co had earlier learnt from a team source in Colombo, “Shaw scored pile of runs in the restricted domestic season. Dhawan & Shaw have great understanding as opening partners as they come from the same IPL team. I will be surprised, if anyone else will be played as India’s opening pain in the 1st ODI on 13th July, I think both Ruturaj and Padikkal will have to wait for their chances.”
