‘Suryakumar Yadav remains calm even in stressful environment’: Veteran cricketer praises SKY

Adelaide. Suryakumar Yadav is one of the most reliable batsmen of Team India, hardly anyone will deny that. In the last few days, Suriya has made many exceptional performances with the bat. His flamboyant innings have played an important role in winning India on many occasions. Suryakumar’s impressive performance continues in the ongoing ICC T20 World Cup in Australia as well. He scored an unbeaten 51 in 25 balls against the Netherlands and 68 off 40 balls against South Africa at a time when Team India was losing wickets fast. Seeing his current performance, former South Africa captain Faf du Plessis lauded Suryakumar for his calmness during tense situations.

Du Plessis said in a video posted on ESPNcricinfo, ‘Suryakumar’s cricketing skills are so great that as a bowler you don’t feel like you can tie him. He has all the different shots, the ability to score in all different parts of the field. But what I like most about him is his calm nature. A player who has so many shots, I have almost never seen him rushing. He always looks calm even in stressful environment.

Du Plessis further said, ‘He knows when and how to change the game with his batting… yet he always looks calm. He is a great T20 player that you want to see him play. He is a brilliant cricketer, so as a youngster you can learn how to change your batting at different stages of the game.

India’s star batsman Suryakumar Yadav has become the world’s number one batsman in the latest T20 International rankings released by the International Cricket Council on Wednesday, thanks to his stellar form in the recent past. Suryakumar overtook Pakistan opener Mohammad Rizwan to take the top spot with his 25-ball 51 not out against the Netherlands in Sydney last week. He is only the second Indian batsman to reach the top of the T20 International rankings. Earlier, Virat Kohli was at the top for 1013 days at various times between September 2014 and December 2017.

Suryakumar has 863 points which is the second best score by an Indian. Kohli had scored 897 points in September 2014. Since making his T20 International debut in March last year, Suryakumar has cemented his place in the Indian team and has carved a niche for himself in world cricket as one of the best batsmen in the shortest format of the game. Suryakumar has scored a century and 11 half-centuries in 37 T20Is for India. He has also represented India in 13 One Day Internationals.
