Surya Kumar Yadav had to wait for a long time for the India cap

Making his T20I debut after turning 30. But there has been no stopping him ever since as he has gone to rack up runs consistently at a rate not seen before. In 45 T20Is. Surya has accumulated 1578 runs at a phenomenal strike rate of 180.34. The highest for any batter with more than 250 T20I runs.

In the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2022, he finished as the third-highest run-getter with 239 runs in six matches. While striking at an eye-watering 189.68. All three of his fifties – against South Africa, Zimbabwe and Netherlands – proved to be crucial knocks under the circumstances and in the case of the latter two, turned the tide in favor of India.

Surya Kumar will not have to wait for too long to gun for Malan’s record. As New Zealand are set to travel to India for a white ball tour. The Tour consisting of three ODIs and three T20Is later this month. The T20I series will kick off on 27 January in Ranchi and good returns against the fifth-placed Kiwis could see Surya break yet another record, something he has made a habit of.
