Mumbai’s middle-order batsman Suryakumar Yadav has come into spotlight after he was slapped with a show-cause notice after the right-hander retweeted a tweet. The matter does sound cheeky but the Mumbai Cricket Association didn’t take the gesture from Yadav in a positive way.
“The problem is Yadav has been vocal and retweeting stuff which is uncalled for. He was dropped from T20 because he has not done well in the past two seasons for Mumbai in the T20 tournament. Even in the past he has done such things. Every player, who is dropped, will certainly not be happy but criticizing the association is uncalled for,” a MCA insider said.
The MCA selection committee had not picked Yadav for zonal T20 league games back on January 25 after Yadav had retweeted a tweet from well-known Mumbai columnist. The Retweet: “You are dropped? Looks like Bombay selectors are unaware that you are the Vice Capt of IPL champion team KKR.”
The KKR batsman’s place in the Mumbai team, for the upcoming Vijay Hazare tournament, has also come under some confusion as he might be shown exit doors after this controversy from the ODI tournament.
Mumbai team: Aditya Tare (Captain), Abhishek Nayar, Shreyas Iyer, Siddhesh Lad, Akhil Herwadkar, Prithvi Shaw, Shivam Dube, Sufiyan Shaikh, Dhawal Kulkarni, Shardul Thakur, Shivam Malhotra, Pravin Tambe, Aditya Dhumal, Vijay Gohil.
