To further solidify his rising status as the best T20I hitter in the world, Suryakumar Yadav turned up yet another spectacular performance on Sunday.
The No. 4 batting position for India is already at the top of the ICC rankings, and against Zimbabwe, he produced an unbeaten 61 off just 25 deliveries to once again assist India in reaching a significant total. For the third time in the competition, Suryakumar has reached the fifty-run mark, and he once more played some mind-blowing shots.
Ravi Shastri, a former head coach of India, inquired about Suryakumar’s ramp shot, which resulted in the Indian batter hitting a six-over deep fine leg. In order to play the stroke, Surya described his preparation.
I rehearsed the stroke a lot when I used to play a lot of rubber-ball cricket. So, you had to be thinking about what the bowler is thinking at that time. “I mean you got to comprehend what the bowler is going to bowl at that time. That is a little predetermined at that moment.
Suryakumar Yadav’s remarks
According to Suryakumar, “If the field is in, I just back myself to go there.”
Shastri continued by questioning Suryakumar on the amount of wrist force needed to play that shot.
The middle-order hitter replied, “You must be aware of the length of the back boundary. From where I am standing, it seems like only 60 to 65 meters. I just try to time it with the ball’s pace and take it on the sweet spot of the bat; if it hits there, it goes all the way.”
India and England square off in the second semifinal on Friday in Adelaide.
