New Format, New Beginnings: India’s young T20 stars face first real test vs Australia

New Delhi, November 22,2023.

Suryakumar Yadav will have to suppress the massive disappointment of a World Cup final defeat somewhere in the deeper confines of his heart while leading a sprightly bunch of ‘Gen-Next’ stars against a strong Australian side in a five-match T20 International series, starting here on Thursday.

The scars of defeat are too deep and it would take time for those wounds to heal.

With just around 96 hours of turnaround time from World Cup to the next series, it hardly leaves ‘SKY’ with any chance of introspection as he gets ready to play his favourite format.
