Suryakumar Yadav resumed his performance at the second Twenty20 International in Pune, but his fifty was insufficient to defeat a chase of more than 200 and send India home. He scored his century with eight sixes and six fours in just 46 balls.
At Rajkot on Saturday, Suryakumar Yadav produced yet another T20I gem. His feat of scoring a century in just 45 deliveries puzzled the Sri Lankan bowling attack and cricket fans. This is Suryakumar’s third century in T20Is, making him one of only five international batters to score three centuries or more. Rohit Sharma holds the world record with four centuries in T20Is. The group is completed by Glenn Maxwell, an Australian, Colin Munro, a New Zealander, and Sabawoon Davizi, a Czech.
In the second Twenty20 International from Pune, Suryakumar resumed his innings, but his fifty was insufficient to defeat India’s chase of over 200 runs and send them home. India’s number four batsman batted after losing Rahul Tripathi’s wicket, scoring a 35 in 16 balls.
India received a significant score thanks to Suryakumar, who once more demonstrated his ability to score sixes and boundaries from all directions.
With two overs remaining in the innings, he reached his half-century with eight sixes and six boundaries, helping India surpass the 200-run mark.
In just 45 deliveries, Suryakumar, the top batter for the ICC, scored India’s second-fastest century in the format.
His shots were full of power, class, and elegance as he continued to awe cricket fans worldwide with his improvisation and technique.
Suryakumar Yadav scored 112 runs with 9 sixes and 7 boundaries in 51 pitches.
