Suryakumar Yadav was in a different mood when he came out to bat against Hong Kong in the ongoing Asia Cup 2022.
He hardly wasted his time before unleashing breathtaking strokes, which took the game away from the rivals at the Dubai International Stadium.
His 26-ball 68 had 6 sixes and as many fours, leading India to 192/2 in 20 overs. With his sensational hitting, he equalled the world record of Kieron Pollard and Aaron Finch.
The 31-year-old has been the top scorer for the team, and his runs have come at a strike rate of 200+ on three occasions in a calendar year.
Finch in 2018 and Pollard in 2021 had scripted the landmark in the game’s shortest format.
