Aakash Chopra has praised Suryakumar Yadav for playing another magnificent knock in the third T20I between India and Sri Lanka in Rajkot on Saturday, January 7.
The 32-year-old smoked an unbeaten 112 off just 51 balls as the Men in Blue posted 228/5 in 20 overs. Then bowlers bowled out Sri Lanka for 137 to register an emphatic 91-run to win the series by a margin of 2-1.
“It is Suryakumar Yadav’s world and you are living in it. He has hit three T20I hundreds. When he bats, everything looks easy for the Indian team,” he said.
Former player highlighted that India’s Mr 360 is enjoying a prolonged purple patch. “He is going through the deepest shade of purple. Suryakumar Yadav scored the first century for India in 2023,” he said.
Aakash feels SKY will soon equal Rohit Sharma’s record.
“Rohit Sharma has scored 4, the most centuries in T20Is. Suryakumar Yadav is not far behind and will soon score his fourth ton in the shortest format.”
