Virat Kohli Commented on Suryakumar Yadav’s Century

Former captain Virat Kohli commended Suryakumar Yadav for his effort

Kohli Commented on Suryakumar: One of the numerous admirers left speechless by Suryakumar Yadav’s second T20I century during the second T20I between India vs New Zealand at Mount Manganui was former India captain Virat Kohli. The right-handed batsman destroyed the Kiwis’ bowling for 111 runs off only 51 balls left undefeated.

Despite not traveling with the Hardik Pandya-led Team India for the New Zealand series, Kohli Commented on Suryakumar and lauded his teammate’s performance and referred to it as a “video game innings.” Notably, Suryakumar Yadav entered the game at number 3, which corresponds to Virat Kohli’s place in the Men in Blue batting order.

Virat’s Tweet

Kohli tweeted by saying “Numero Uno showing why he’s the best in the world. Didn’t watch it live but I’m sure this was another video game innings by him.”

Surya’s Reply to Virat’s Tweet

This tweet went so viral that even in the post-match press conference reporters asked him about his thoughts on Virat’s tweet, Surya in reply said “Recently we played together and stitched partnerships as well. I really enjoy batting with him, but we need to run a lot because he is super fit. But at the same time when we bat together, we hardly discuss our game. We respect each other and know how he plays. However, I do tell him one thing you stand firm at one end and I’ll continue to play my shots from the other.”

He concluded by saying “I’ll take it as a compliment and look forward on how to improve further.”

Ind vs Nz: Incredible Innings by Surya Kumar Yadav

His last 64 runs came off just 18 balls as he hammered boundaries and sixes at will. His exciting inning featured 11 fours and seven sixes, and his astounding 217.64 strike rate.

The New Zealand bowlers seemed oblivious as Surya continued to string together some incredible hits. During the run chase, the home team continued losing wickets and never appeared to be in contention. New Zealand was eventually dismissed for 126 runs in 18.5 overs.

India now leads the three-match series 1-0 after the first game was rained out. The decisive game will be played on Tuesday.

Next Match?

The series’ penultimate and final Twenty20 international match will now take place on Tuesday, November 22, at 12:00 PM IST, between India and New Zealand. India will be aiming to win the last match and sweep the three-match series, while New Zealand will be aiming to win the final T20 match and even the series.
