the luxury of an abundance of talent and the series in the pocket already meant that india could experiment with five debutants in the final odi the match may have not gone india’s way but plenty of positives from this young indian team in that final outing hey guys you’re watching minthra presents rcb 12th man tv credit to sri lanka they were the better team they pushed india right till the very end in the second game but were able to cross the line in that final odi and as far as india concerned plenty of positives we’ll start with surya kumar yadav an average of 62 over 120 runs in the three match series he ended up as india’s second highest run getter after skipper shikhar davan and he scored all of this at a strike rate of 120 for a format that is soon evolving into an extension of the t20s scoring at such a strike rate in the middle lowers has its own advantages surya kumar yadav is certainly sending a strong message that he is ready for bigger responsibilities and with two t20 world cups lined up well sky is the limit the future of indian cricket is in safe hands that’s an established fact now but the manner in which the two debutants made full use of their opportunities and made a match of a modest total is a sign of things to come raul chairs three wickets were crucial for india and zakaria’s two wickets at a time when lanka were cruising was equally important as well and with the t20s starting tomorrow trust these young boys to continue their rise in international cricket and finally yusvayn richard’s form this one is for the rcb fans despite being rested on his birthday to make way for another leg spinner raoul chad yuzi ended up as the tournament’s highest wicket taker five wickets at an economy just a little over five and an average below twenty one you yuzi certainly accomplished what he wanted to from the series at a time when many people are doubting his form the spin maestro silenced his critics in the best way possible and seems ready and confident for the t20 series and also the ipl in the uae so far the team has managed to achieve the target it had for the tour they won the series and tried a whole bunch of new faces while the main squad gets ready for the big challenge against england the backup options have given enough indications that they are now finished products you
