However, Yadav’s strike rate in One Day has been a cause for concern. He averages just 100.42 runs per 100 balls in ODIs, which is well below the required rate for a One Day batsman.
Coaching and Confidence Building: Backing from Rohit Sharma and Rahul Dravid

Rohit and Dravid have given Yadav clear instructions on how to improve his ODI game. They have told him to spend more time in the crease and build his innings before going for his shots.
