ICC T20 WORLD CUP 2022, Australia

Modern Day 360° Batsman

Fastest Indian T20 Fifty: With two half-centuries in his first three appearances at the current men’s T20 World Cup, Suryakumar has been in excellent form. His 68 off 40 balls against South Africa came in a match where other Indian batters struggled. With 1006 runs, including a century, he also has the most runs in T20Is in 2022.

Although Suryakumar has one T20I century and a commendable 11 half-centuries to his credit, it is his batting strike rate of over 177, his capacity to score in all areas of the field, and the all-around play that make him stand out.

Unstoppable Surya

It seemed impossible to stop Suryakumar Yadav! In India’s final Super 12 encounter against Zimbabwe for the T20 World Cup 2022, the batter was unstoppable at the Melbourne Cricket Ground on Sunday, scoring 61 runs off just 25 deliveries to remain unbeaten. Suryakumar’s 25-ball 61 helped India defeat Zimbabwe in Melbourne by sending the ball flying across the entire field.
