The Indian team registered a big win by 8 wickets in the first ODI against South Africa played at the Wanderers Stadium in Johannesburg. In this match, left-handed opening batsman Sai Sudarshan from Team India got a chance to debut in international cricket. Sudarshan had earlier shown his talent in both domestic cricket and IPL. In this match too, Sudarshan gave a similar performance with the bat and returned with an unbeaten inning of 55 runs, leading the team to victory. Sudarshan has now become a part of a special club by scoring more than 50 runs as an opening batsman in his debut ODI match.

Sudarshan became a part of this club along with KL Rahul and Robin Uthappa.

Sai Sudarshan has become the fourth player to play an innings of 50 plus runs as an opening batsman in the debut match for India in the ODI format. Earlier in the year 2006, Robin Uthappa had played an inning of 86 runs against England. After that, KL Rahul and Faiz Fazal had achieved this feat in their debut ODI match against Zimbabwe in the year 2016, in which Rahul scored an unbeaten 100 while Faiz Fazal played an unbeaten inning of 55 runs. Now Sai Sudarshan’s name has also been included in this list. Sudarshan faced 43 balls during his unbeaten innings of 55 runs and also hit 9 brilliant fours. If we look at Sudarshan’s record in List-A, he has scored 1324 runs at an average of 63.04 in 26 matches, which includes 6 centuries and five half-centuries.

Made the fifth highest score while remaining unbeaten in ODI debut

For Sai Sudarshan, his first international match can be called quite memorable, in which he became the fifth highest run scorer for India by returning unbeaten in the debut ODI match. After KL Rahul, Ambati Rayudu, Ravindra Jadeja and Krunal Pandya, now Sai Sudarshan’s name is in this list.
