Yadav put up quite a few memorable performances throughout the year. But maybe his best performance came in Nottingham. Where he made his first T20I hundred, a remarkable 117 off 55 balls. Playing against one of the best white-ball teams in recent memory, England.

Yadav raised India from 31/3 in a run chase of 216 to lift India. As giving the visitors a chance to knock down the target. Although he was dismissed, India was still within striking distance of a stunning triumph that would have made them renowned.
