IND vs SL: 3 Reasons Why Washington Sundar Didn’t Deserve A Place In India’s T20 Squad vs Sri Lanka
3. Poor Batting Strength
Washington Sundar has done a good job with the ball in T20Is so far. However, the same is not true for his batting. Across 32 T20I games so far since his debut in 2017, Sundar has only batted in 12 innings.
Out of those, he remained unbeaten in 4 innings. His top score is unbeaten 14 runs. This means that Sundar has never scored more than 14 runs in any of the 12 T20Is he batted. Hence, it implies that the all-rounder lacks batting strength.
