‘two birds with one stone’; The former star enumerated the advantages of Suryakumar Yadav’s batting position
India’s own T20 specialist Suryakumar Yadav is breaking the stage with an amazing performance in the cricket world. Former Indian player Anjum Chopra points out that along with the performance of Suryakumar Yadav, the player’s position in the batting order is also crucial in the performance.
He also said that this batting order is very helpful for the Indian team as a whole. There are obvious reasons for that, he added. His reaction was after Sunday’s match.
He came to bat third. So there was opportunity and time to score good runs. There is a big difference between playing third and fourth. Getting more time to bat will benefit both him and the team,’ says Anjum Chopra.
Suryakumar Yadav, India’s spearhead in the T20 format, gave a performance that touched the sky like his nickname Sky the other day. The player scored 111 runs from 51 balls at a strike rate of 217.65. Sky is the man of the match.
As the first T20 match of the India-New Zealand series had to be abandoned due to rain, both teams entered the field at Bay Oval on Sunday with only the aim of winning the second match. New Zealand won the toss and sent India in to bat.
But the Kiwi birds were being washed away in Suryakumar mountain water patch. The performance of the player who led the innings with 111 runs from 51 balls brought India to victory.
Sky brought out all of their magic in the 19th over bowled by Lockie Ferguson when the New Zealand line-up was beaten by all the bowlers in fairly good fashion.
Suryakumar Yadav started by bowling the first ball of the 19th over. No runs were scored in the second ball. Suryakumar hit boundaries in the next three balls and ended the over by hitting the sixth ball for a six.
Batting first, India scored 191 runs for the loss of six wickets in the stipulated over.
Set a target of 192 runs, the Kiwis made a mistake in the beginning. Finn Allen was out for zero in the first over. Arshdeep Singh was caught by Bhuvneshwar Kumar and got out.
Captain Kane Williamson scored 61 runs from 52 balls for the Kiwis. But with no one to support the star, New Zealand collapsed like a house of cards. New Zealand were all out for 126 runs in 18.5 overs.
Meanwhile, India’s next match is on November 22. The third T20I of the series against New Zealand will be played at McLaren Park.
