Best participant in the game In the third and final T20I game on Saturday, Suryakumar Yadav smashed an explosive 112 off 51 balls to help Team India upset Sri Lanka by 91 runs, winning the series 2-1. Suryakumar has totaled three centuries since making his Twenty20 international debut in 2021. He was the top run-getter in T20Is worldwide in 2022 and currently averages a staggering 46.41 in the shortest format.

Suryakumar once again showed why he is the No. 1 T20I hitter in the world as he played smashes in different stadium corners and toyed around Sri Lanka’s bowling attack. Mr.360, a right-handed batter, hit nine sixes and seven fours, only accumulating 82 runs on boundaries. Former India batting coach Sanjay Bangar hailed Suryakumar’s exceptional performance at the post-game discussion on Star Sports and expressed admiration for his blitzkrieg.

“When doing the Surya Namaskar, there are 12 steps. He covers every square inch of the 360-degree cricket field by dividing it by 12. No matter the direction of the shot, whether it be in the point area, cover, or fine leg, he plays it well “Bangar” said.

He is a once-in-a-generation talent, especially in this format, and because of this, the speaker remarked that “every Indian feels excitement and pride that such a superb player is in the Indian camp.”

Suryakumar’s valiant performance, along with contributions from Shubman Gill (46 off 36 balls) and Rahul Tripathi, helped the Men in Blue post 228/5. (35 off 16 balls). Due to the required run rate being 11.40 from the first ball of Sri Lanka’s chase, the visitors were under duress when they lost their first wicket for 44 runs. In 6.1 overs, the score was 51/3 after the next two wickets fell rapidly one after the other. India bowled out the visitors for 137 in 16.4 overs thanks to a rising run rate and steady wickets.

Axar Patel, an all-rounder, won Player of the Series after amassing 117 runs at an average of 117.00 in three games while also taking three wickets.
