SuryaKumar Yadav’s hundred in the second T20I was worthy of all the praises.
In the game when other batters managed to score just 69 runs in 69 balls, the number 1 T20 batter Surya slammed 111 runs in just 51 balls and showed the world why he deserved the number 1 spot. For his excellent knock, Surya was chosen the player of the match.
After the innings break, Surya was invited by the broadcasters and asked about his knock, on which he said that In T20, a hundred is always special but at the same time, it was really important for me to bat till the very end. Hardik was telling me to bat till the 18th or 19th over, and get to a score of 185 or so. After the end of the 16th over, we had a chat about taking it deep. It was important to maximise the last few overs. Have been doing the same things over and over again, in the nets and it’s just coming off for me”
When Surya was giving interview, Rishabh Pant came from behind and held him from back and then described his innings in 4 words, “This is unbelievable innings”. Surya was chosen player of the match for his terrific innings. It was his 7th man of the match award in T20Is this year.
