Kapil Dev Comments on Suryakumar Yadav: Surya fever is not yet going from the minds of people. The way he played in the final T20I against Sri Lanka, he gained a lot of appraisals from around the world and one such special acknowledgement came from former world cup winning skipper Kapil Dev. 

It was obvious that Surya received praise from around the world for his unique way of batting. Bowlers don’t know where to bowl when Surya is batting and his shot selections all around the park are causing problems for bowlers during the game.

Surya’s Amazing Innings against Sri Lanka in the final T20I

A touching, charming, and beautiful performance from Suryakumar Yadav. Suryakumar Yadav once again showcased his brilliance by collecting his third century in the T20I play and first of 2023. He scored a critical 112 runs in 51 balls.

The heavens pitched a game-winning inning, returning to the game precisely when India needed him to. 100 shorts of such exceptional quality were scattered across the park. This is his third T20I century in less than six months.


Kapil Dev Comments on Suryakumar Yadav’s Batting Ability 

The World Cup Winning skipper started out by saying “Sometimes I am at a loss of words on how to describe his knock. When we see Sachin Tendulkar, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, we feel someday there will be a player who will compel us to think he is also part of that list. There is indeed a lot of talent in India.”

He further added by saying “And the kind of cricket he plays, that lap shot the one over fine leg, then that leaves the bowler frightened because he can stand and hit a six over mid-on and mid-wicket. That is what makes it difficult for the bowlers because he is able to pick the line and length consistently.”

He also compared Suryakumar Yadav with some of the great legends by giving him a separate phrase “Once in a Century Batsman.” He quoted saying “I have seen great batters like De Villiers, Vivian Richards, Sachin, Virat, Ricky Ponting, but very few can hit the ball as cleanly as him. Hats off to Suryakumar Yadav. This kind of player comes only once in a century.”

What’s Next for Suryakumar Yadav?

After an exciting T20I series against Sri Lanka now the Sky will have a chance to prove his worth in the ODI series against Sri Lanka starting from tomorrow. We know that he is the current No.1 T20I batsman and he will now be looking to make a name for himself in the ODI as well.
