Suryakumar Yadav has been one of the most consistent batters in T20Is and is ranked second in the ICC Rankings. He has played a couple of match-winning innings for the Men in Blue against big teams.
In 25 T20Is, he has accumulated 758 runs with the help of a century and 6 fifties. His runs have come at a strike rate of 177.51.
Despite his impressive record, one of the Pakistan journalists, Arfa Feroz Zake, has made an unwanted comment on SKY, calling him one of the most overrated batters in T20 cricket.
“Suryakumar Yadav is one of the most overrated batter in T20! Don’t know which pity opinions had started his comparison with the great Babar Azam!,” he wrote.
His words didn’t go down well with the fans, who took him to the task.
Here are the tweets
‘He’s 10x better in t20 than Babar. Babar is so selfish with no intent to score quick,” one of the users wrote.
“True comparing Babar to Sky, lowest point of sky career,” another fan tweeted.
“Cricket is a team game ❤️day… This is India, not Pak team to concentrate on individual score and ranking. Everyone got out trying to score runs and that’s what matters.”
“Who compares SKY with anyone? He is in the league of his own. It’s you guys who compare him with the player you have mentioned.”
Meanwhile, India scored 181/7 against Pakistan in the second game of the Asia Cup 2022, with Virat Kohli contributing 60 off 44 balls. SKY managed 13 off 10 balls at the Dubai International Stadium.
