Suryakumar Yadav can do anything for India in T20Is. He has opened the innings and batted at different positions. Former India all-rounder and 2007 T20 World Cup winner Irfan Pathan said there is nothing Surya can’t do now.
His comments came after the 31-year-old stunned Hong Kong with the bat. SKY scored an unbeaten 68 off 26 balls, with the help of 6 sixes and as many fours to take the team to the knockout stage of the Asia Cup 2022 in the UAE.
India would have scored 160-170 had Yadav not played one of the best knocks of his career.
“Is there anything which he can’t do? He has opened the innings and batted at different batting positions. SKY gives flexibility to the batting order, and Rohit Sharma can make changes around him,” said Irfan.
India defeated the rivals by 40 runs after scoring 192/2 in 20 overs. The minnows managed 152/5 in the end.
