Suryakumar Yadav led Team India to a memorable victory over Sri Lanka in Saturday’s third and final T20I at the Saurashtra Cricket Association Stadium.
In the series decider at Rajkot, India finished ahead of Sri Lanka. Thanks to a scintillating knock from the on-song batter.
Suryakumar joined hands with opener Shubman Gill to lay the groundwork for a match-winning total at Rajkot. After Rahul Tripathi’s crucial cameo gave India a rollicking start in the powerplay.
Suryakumar achieved his third century in the game’s shortest format while opener Gill failed to score his first T20I half-century.
Suryakumar, on the other hand, remained unbeaten. India, led by Pandya, posted a massive total of 228/5 in 20 overs. Riding on Suryakumar’s breathtaking knock of 112* off 51 balls.
Indian skipper Pandya praised in-form Suryakumar’s batting prowess during the presentation ceremony.
He is merely stating to us that batting is so simple. If I were to bow to him, I would be discouraged by his batting and shot selection. Pandya stated, “He has played blinders after blinders.”
Arshdeep Singh, Yuzvendra Chahal, and Umran Malik shared four wickets to bowl out Sri Lanka for 137 in 16.4 overs after Suryakumar led India to a massive total.
For his outstanding batting, premier batter Suryakumar was awarded Player of the Match. In addition, stand-in skipper Pandya praised Tripathi for his brief cameo in India’s series-deciding victory over Sri Lanka.
The Indian all-rounder was also asked to advise Suryakumar, India’s go-to batter in the shortest format.
The ball was doing something, but Rahul Tripathi showed great intent. After that, SKY got to work. He knows what to do, so you don’t have to say anything.
We have conversations whenever he is unsure of something. But most of the time, he knows what to do,” Pandya continued.
