Former India flyhalf Aakash Chopra has claimed star hitter Suryakumar Yadav is India’s 360 degree player. Suryakumar’s heroism on Sunday was in vain as England beat India by 17 points in the 3rd T20I.
The right-handed hitter showed a range of hits on his way to a flawless century. Aakash Chopra has praised Suryakumar Yadav after his sensational rounds in the 3rd T20I as he compared the fighter with former South African slugger AB Devilliers.
“Surya’s shot was not just bravado, but also a lot of sense of the game…knowing where the outfielders were…and where the bowlers were likely to bowl. It’s own Mr. 360 degrees of India,” Chopra said exclusively on the Koo app. India may have lost the match but the visitors won the T20I series 2-1 against England. Coming to the game, England crushed 215 in the 20 overs allowed as Dawid Malan and Liam Livingston wreaked havoc on India’s bowlers.
Chasing 216, India didn’t get off to a good start as the visitors lost skipper Rohit Sharma, wicketkeeper Rishabh Pant and Virat Kohli in 5 overs. However, it was the sensational century of Suryakumar (117) that brought India closer to the mark before succumbing to defeat.
Both teams now lock horns in the ODI series from Tuesday. (ANI)
