Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav were Team India’s heroes in the third and final T20I against Australia in Hyderabad.
They shared a partnership of 104 runs in just 10 overs, which played a key role in India’s win by six wickets and taking the series by 2-1.
When Suryakumar arrived at the crease, Virat took the back seat and allowed his batting partner to attack the rivals. Kohli lauded SKY for his knock.
Yadav scored 69 off 36 balls, laced with 5 fours and as many sixes. On the other hand, Kohli smashed 63 off 48 balls, including 4 sixes and 3 fours.
When the 33-year-old was asked about Yadav’s performance, he saluted the player.
“Surya can bat in any conditions and has been outstanding with no fear. The array of shots he has is just brilliant. I looked at the dugout, and Rahul Dravid Rohit Sharma asked me to continue until the end as SKY played aggressive cricket. He was in good form in England and then scored runs in the Asia Cup,” he said.
