Suryakumar Yadav has been India’s hero in T20Is for the last year and continued his excellent run in the Asia Cup 2022. The right-handed batter scored 68 off 26 balls against Hong Kong while batting at No.4.
Former India player Gautam Gambhir said that SKY is a better fit at No.3 than Virat Kohli, which drew a reaction from the man himself.
“I feel agar Surya No.3 pe batting karta he toh zyada behetar rahega as compared to Virat Kohli,” he said while Suryakumar quietly stood beside him.
The two were part of Kolkata Knight Riders in the Indian Premier League.
“Maine toh bol diya he ki he should be batting at No.3.”
TV presenter Jatin Sapru replied, “Usne (Suryakumar) bola he should be very flexible.”
Gambhir immediately said, “Woh uska majburi he,” as Suryakumar and Jatin shared a laugh.
