Suryakumar Yadav is having a great time in his career. The Mumbai player recently made his debut for the Indian team during the T20I series against England in Ahmedabad last week. His wife Devisha Shetty was at the stadium with her husband, but Hardik Pandya’s wife Natasha Stankovic uploaded a hilarious story on her as Surya was batting in the middle.
Yadav has been knocking on the doors of the Indian team for quite some time now. But, finally, the southpaw was given an opportunity to represent his country. On his debut, he didn’t a chance to bat. In his second match though, he got an opportunity to bat and he stamped his authority with a brilliant knock of 57 from just 31 balls.
In the Instagram story shared by Natasa, she took a picture of Devisha looking with a binocular. In that picture, Natasa had written that she is looking for the third umpire. The reason why this was done was because of an incident that created some controversy in the fourth T20I match between India and England.
Suryakumar Yadav was given out in a controversial manner
During the Indian innings, Surya was batting at 57 and was looking quite good with the bat. But, he tried to scoop the ball and Dawid Malan took quite an awkward catch. The on-field umpire gave the soft signal as out and sent it for a review by the third umpire. However, the pictures which were shown on the replay suggested the ball might have touched the ground before Malan gathered it properly. However, the images from the replay didn’t look conclusive to the third umpire. The umpire decided to stay with the original decision which was out.
In this way, Surya was dismissed for the first time in international cricket. The incident also sparked a lot of debate around the soft signal. The match eventually was won by India. Suryakumar further went on to score 32 runs from 17 balls in the fifth match of the series. Both his knocks were fortunately in wins over England. It also played a crucial part in India’s series win by a margin of 3-2.
