“It’s like watching AB de Villiers; everyone turns their televisions to him” Suryakumar Yadav, a batter for India, from Graeme Smith

De Villiers and India’s Suryakumar Yadav share similarities. According to Graeme Smith, an ex-captain of South Africa who helped de Villiers get started. With the exception of KL Rahul on a few sporadic occasions. Very few Indian batters have been able to put Rohit Sharma and Virat Kohli on the back burner in recent years. For close to a decade, Virat and Rohit have been the face of Indian batting.

Shikhar Dhawan in one-day internationals and Cheteshwar Pujara, Ajinkya Rahane. Rishabh Pant in test cricket have all had their moments, but no one has been able to top Rohit and Kohli. This year, Suryakumar Yadav made a change. With his stunning strokeplay and fearless approach to T20 cricket, SKY, as he is known, rendered Rohit and Virat pale.

While Rohit Sharma has four hundred and Kohli is the world’s leading run scorer in this format. They are not the best Indian batsmen, at least not in their current form. In terms of stats and impact, SKY is way ahead. Another thing that sets Suryakumar apart is the fact that his batting style is very similar to that of Rohit and Kohli.

In point of fact, very few batsmen worldwide, let alone in Indian cricket. Have batted at a strike rate of more than 180 with this consistency. AB de Villiers is the only other name that comes to mind. Because of his wide range of strokeplay and mind-boggling execution, the South African legend stood out from the crowd.

De Villiers and India’s Suryakumar Yadav share similarities. According to Graeme Smith, an ex-captain of South Africa who helped de Villiers get started. I’ve been seeing Suryakumar Yadav for some time. I’ve been lucky to watch him while commentating during the IPL. Every year, he grew. He clearly possessed the talent. In many ways, it was almost like watching AB.

The ability and talent begin to catch up to the thinking as well. Having players like Suryakumar Yadav emerge from the ranks is fantastic. The energy and talking points they bring to the game. Everybody watches players like him on television. Suryakumar Yadav ranked No. 1 in the ICC T20I rankings, has scored two centuries. Scored 1164 runs in 31 T20I matches this year at a startling strike rate of 187.43.

The right-hander’s performance in T20 has been so impressive. Indian management is considering using him in red-ball cricket as well. Is Hardik Pandya the upcoming captain of India?
Split captaincy in Indian cricket has been a major topic of discussion as well. It would appear that Hardik Pandya is the most likely candidate to succeed Rohit Sharma as T20I captain.

Smith chose not to pick a side when asked about the same thing. The thing about Indian cricket is their current abundance of talent. Rohit waited for a long time behind Virat. He’s also had a lot of success at MI. Furthermore, Hardik clearly performed admirably with GT. Having pioneers in your team is perfect.
