India tour to Australia 2020 is scheduled and BCCI announced squads for India for Test, One Day, and T20 matches. One non-selection that took many by surprise was of Surya Kumar Yadav.
S.K.Yadav is currently showing his wonderful skill with bat in IPL as he is playing for the Mumbai Indians (MI) in the 2020 edition. However, the news hasn’t discouraged Surya at all as MI shared his picture on their Instagram handle with a motivational message. The 30-year-old responded to the post and wrote: “Grind, never stops.”
Harbhajan, Manoj not happy with the selectors
Surya has been doing wonderful with the bat in this season and earlier seasons too. He has been impressive and batting at a strike-rate of around 150. Furthermore, he hasn’t performed below the expectations for Mumbai in the domestic circuit as well.
Despite all this, Surya has been ignored by the BCCI selectors constantly. This has made several fans as well as some veterans of the fascinating game unhappy.
Senior spin bowler, Harbhajan Singh, was of the opinion that the Indian board needs to research deep into Surya’s overall numbers.

“Don’t know what else @surya_14kumar needs to do get picked in the team India… he has been performing every ipl and Ranji season… different people different rules I guess @BCCI I request all the selectors to see his records,” Bhajji wrote on Twitter
The other IPL star, Manoj Tiwary, also said that he deserves a spot in the lineup. Tiwary spoke in favour of Axar Patel, who’s playing for Delhi Capitals (DC) in the current season.

At last, we want to repeat Yadav’s own words: “Grind never stops.”
