However, Yadav has been injured twice this year. The Indian think tank would be desperately hoping that the Mumbai cricketer suffers no more injuries going forward which could put them in all sorts of trouble in order to find a consistent and well-established middle-order batter.
Even though Bhuvneshwar Kumar is playing for India only T20Is on a regular basis now, there could be fitness concerns for the pacer in the future, and should that happen then it would definitely turn out to be a huge blow for the Indian pace attack.
He was all set to lead the Men in Blue in the home T20Is against South Africa in June before a groin injury ruled him out of action. One more unfortunate injury to Rahul going forward would leave them with hardly any choice of finding a suitable batting replacement.
