Indian Cricketer Suryakumar Yadav was lauded across the world for his spectacular performance at the clash against Zimbabwe at the MCG on Sunday. Twitter is flooded with congratulatory tweets by fans as well as the entire Cricket Fraternity.
Suryakumar made 61 runs in just 25 balls, striking 6 fours and 4 sixes. He hit most of his sixes and fours with lap shots or his trademark scoops over fine leg and was compared to South African legend AB de Villiers. When asked about the comparisons with de Villiers, Suryakumar Yadav said,
“There is only one Mr. 360 and I will try to play like him.”
To which, AB de Villiers hailed Suryakumar Yadav with a tweet saying,
“You’re very quickly getting there dude, and even more! Well played today.”

Veteran Cricketer Gavaskar also lauded Suryakumar for his spectacular performance. He told India Today,-- Advertisement --
“Each of those innings was pretty much 360 degrees. He is the new Mr. 360 degree. There was that one shot that he hit for a six just to the left of the wicketkeeper. Then he went a little squarer in the final overs, for example, taking advantage of the angle that the bowler was trying to aim at. Then also the lofted extra cover drive, he has got every shot in the book. There was a straight drive as well.”
The cricketer is the current World’s Best T20I Batsman. Moreover, he has set a new record of scoring over 1000 runs in T20 Internationals in 2022. Suryakumar Yadav is the first Indian to achieve the milestone and the second cricketer ever to do the same.
The world’s best T20I batter has a new record to his name.
