In India, Suryakumar Yadav outperforms a star from Pakistan. South Africa, who broke a significant T20I record
In the opening Twenty20 International against South Africa and India, Suryakumar hit three sixes, extending his year-to-date total to 45.
The batter with the most sixes in a calendar year is now Suryakumar Yadav. And he won’t be stopped in 2022, when the game will be played in its shortest version. He accomplished this at India’s opening Twenty20 international against South Africa in Kerala, which was the first of a three-match series. As he tried to chase down a low score of 107 on a difficult ball with a lot of swing and bounce, the wristy right-hander appeared to be batting on a different surface during the game.
He therefore blasted an unbroken 50 with five fours and three sixes in just 33 balls. On a pitch where even a strike rate of 100 was difficult to achieve, Suryakumar hit the ball at a rate of 151.52.
He added 3 sixes to his 2022 total of 45 sixes.
Mohammad Rizwan of Pakistan had previously held the record after hitting 42 sixes in 2021, but he has now eclipsed him with this. With 41 sixes in 2021, veteran New Zealander Martin Guptill ranks third. Interesting given that Rizwan needed 26 innings to hit his 42 sixes, Suryakumar has surpassed Rizwan’s record in just 21 innings.
India struggled to get going in their 107-run chase, losing Rohit Sharma (#0) and Virat Kohli as well as cheaply to Kagiso Rabada and Anrich Nortje (3).
India had 17/2 in their six overs after the powerplay was over. The game got a boost from KL Rahul (51*) and Suryakumar Yadav (50*), who were both performing well. Suryakumar was the aggressor, with Rahul acting as an anchor. India won by eight wickets thanks to a game-winning 93-run partnership between the two players.
Arshdeep Singh was named “Man of the Match” for his amazing performance.
