India's Suryakumar Yadav has been lighting up the T20 World Cup 2022 stage with his batting heroics and never seen before shot selections. The batter has been phenomenal with his strike rate in the tournament and has also played the saviour and drove the team to victory.
He has been displaying his brilliant strokeplay that has impressed fans and peers alike. Former Australian legend Matthew Hayden commented on the 32 year-old, stating that the batter has proved that T20 cricket is much more than power-hitting and muscle power.
Hayden in awe of SKY
"Suryakumar Yadav is playing beautifully, from the middle to the late stage. With a competency of all areas of the ground with access shots innovation. Batters like him are threats. So It’s not always about the power."
“As I said I think as cricketers we are all trying to come to grips with when is the power? When’s that foot go down on the floor? When does it decelerate and look to preserve? Lot of the matches have been very close. The tricky balance between preservation of the wickets versus exploration of innovation have been really why I think a lot of these sides that are here now in this tournament are still here.”
Another SKY performance will be on display against England in India's semi-final contest on 10th November at 1:30 PM.
