Despite the presence of Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, and Rohit Sharma in the Indian lineup, Suryakumar Yadav once again showed why he is the most feared batsman. The newly-crowned No. 1 T20I hitter in the world, Suryakumar, lit up Melbourne Cricket Ground with a flurry of boundaries on Sunday against Zimbabwe in the last group-stage match of the T20 World Cup, making fun of the Zimbabwean attack in India’s 71-run victory. The batter received the highest appreciation from Indian great Gautam Gambhir after the game.

Following KL Rahul’s fifty, Zimbabwe was able to turn the tide in their favor for a little while. Zimbabwe had nothing to lose since it had already been eliminated from the semi-final contest, but India was competing for first place in the points standings. However, Suryakumar Yadav had other ideas. In his 25-ball 61, he smashed four maximums and six boundaries, helping India to a massive total.

Just admiring Suryakumar’s strokeplay left Gambhir speechless. After the game, he said in an interview with Star Sports that while India has players like Kohli and Rohit, they have never had a player like Suryakumar who could bat in that way at No. 4. In addition, he chose the Indian star as the tournament’s Player of the Year for his significant World Cup hits.

There are some extremely traditional players, including Virat Kohli, KL Rahul, and Rohit Sharma. The unique Suryakumar Yadav stands out. Enjoy, observe, and savor it. Since India has never had a player of this kind, particularly one capable of hitting at No. 4, they are uncommon. You will get traditional players who will give you much more consistency, but imagine the strike rate if Suryakumar, what was it, 180 I guess? Even if India doesn’t go on to win the tournament, he is already my choice for Player of the Tournament with over 200 runs and three fifties. Because of the sort of influence he has made, he is already the best, the speaker said.

The luxury of bowling those opening six overs is not available to him. However, he bats at No. 4 and has a 175/180 strike rate. In this World Cup, the No.4 batter does not have that type of the influence.

India will play their semi-final match against England.
