The 32-year-old scored four goals in the opening game, and then in Hamilton, he went undefeated with 34. But he once again fell short, being out for just six runs in Christchurch’s final game.
Although Suryakumar Yadav rose to fame among Indian cricket fans in the run-up to the 2022 T20 World Cup, his performance in ODIs may cause some worry. He was dismissed in a similar manner in the just-finished three-match ODI series against New Zealand, scoring 4 and 6 in the first and third matches, respectively.
Even though he scored 34 in the second game, which was a counterattack, the similarities between his dismissals in the first game of the series and the last ODI did tell a narrative because he was caught edging the ball to the slip fielder in both instances.
Wasim Jaffer, a former cricketer for India, responded that the inclusion of a slip fielder has something to do with Sky’s recent stretch of scoreless innings.
“Yes, he was caught by the slip fielder in both ODIs, which is how he was out. There is no slip in T20 cricket, therefore you live. But as his career develops and more people speculate that he might play in Test matches, he must become better in this area,” he told ESPN Cricinfo.
In the opening game, the 32-year-old managed to score four goals, and in Hamilton, he then scored an unbeaten 34. He did, however, fall short once more as he was out for only 6 runs in Christchurch’s final game.
Ravi Shastri’s remarks on Suryakumar Yadav.
Former India men’s national coach Ravi Shastri had expressed his admiration at HIS fireworks, comparing him to AB de Villiers at his best, and said “he is one of the top T20 players in the world.”
“In the quickest format of the game in 2022, Surya made news by displaying magnificent strokes that very few people had ever had the chance to see.
“Surya is a top-tier player, if not the finest T20 player in the world. He is deadly and has a strong all-around game.
“On his best day, if he bats 30 to 40 balls, he will win you the game since he scores quickly and disenfranchises the opponent with his style of play. He resembles AB de Villiers in his prime quite a little.
“After India’s second match against New Zealand,” Shastri told Prime Video that Surya can deflate the opposition just like AB did when he played one of those amazing innings.
