West Indies skipper Kieron Pollard has lauded the player of the series Suryakumar Yadav, saying all batters of the game should learn from him and emulate his standards. The right-handed batter scored 65 runs off just 31 balls in the third T20I at the Eden Gardens to assist in a 17-run win and complete a series whitewash.
Yadav was the highest run-scorer for the hosts in the series, with 107 runs at an average of 53.50 and a strike rate of 194.55. He will next play against Sri Lanka in the upcoming three-match T20I series.
“He is a world class player. I had thye opportunity to play with him at Mumbai Indians when he first joined them in 20111. He is doing great things for India as 360-degree player. All batters can take a page out of his book,” Pollard said during a virtual press meet.
