Suryakumar Yadav being named player of the game “surprises” KL Rahul, he claims.
The second Twenty20 International between South Africa and India at the Barsapara Stadium in Guwahati produced some excellent batting performances. KL Rahul’s 28-ball 57 and Rohit Sharma’s more composed 43 gave India a great start. Suryakumar Yadav went on a scoring spree when India reached 237/8, slamming 61 off 22 while Virat Kohli hit an unbeaten 49 off 28. Even though South Africa ultimately lost. David Miller played a crucial game-changing innings, almost single-handedly guiding the visitors to an incredible triumph with his 47-ball 106*.
KL Rahul claimed Suryakumar Yadav had a greater impact on the game and that he was “surprised” to be named player of the game. KL Rahul believed that his innings of 57 off 28 against South Africa in the second T20I was the finest of the series.
There were a number of contenders for “Player of the Match,” but the judges selected India’s opener, KL Rahul.
The Indian vice-captain quickly pointed out that Suryakumar Yadav had contributed more to the team and that he had been taken aback by the honor.
“I have to admit that I’m taken aback by this. Because of the way he batted, I think Surya had a stronger impact on the game and altered it. KL Rahul speaks with host Harsha Bhogle after accepting the award at the post-match presentation ceremony.
Bhogle proceeded, saying that a “senior opening batsman” in the commentary box had said that opening is the most difficult position to play, and KL Rahul chuckled.
“We opening batters always assume that our job is tougher in ODIs,” he said, “but after batting a few innings in the middle order. I’ve come to know that it’s challenging as well, and as I said, Surya had a bigger impact.
Additionally, he lauded Kohli and Dinesh Karthik. He entered the game in the penultimate over and scored 17 runs off of 7 to help India win the match.
“Likewise Virat’s batting style. And it’s not easy for someone like Dinesh, who doesn’t receive many balls; just getting into the game and performing as expected was an excellent batting effort.”
