Dinesh Karthik has lauded praise on Suryakumar Yadav and the way that he is batting. Surya has been phenomenal in the recent past, the current number 1 ICC T20 batter hit a brilliant unbeaten century in the 2nd T20I against New Zealand. 

SKY's century drove team India to a thumping 65 run win over the Kiwis. The batter only debuted in 2021 but he has cemented his place in the squad after displaying brilliant performances since last year. 

Dinesh Karthik in awe of SKY

"He is making it look much easier than what he is actually doing. What he is doing is really special. To have the ability to hit on both sides of the wicket and use the pace consistently is not an easy task. It comes very naturally to him." 

"Still, having the mental aptitude to go through those initial balls and then get going and absolutely have a blast at the end… You can see why he is so special."

"(His strike rate) pretty much sums up where Surya is on the ladder, so to say. I think among his peers in world cricket right now, he is right at the top. He is batting at the peak of his prowess and it’s a joy to watch him bat - just toying around with bowlers, toying around with the (opposition) captain."
