Suryakumar Yadav made an impressive start to his T20 International career. After getting into the side, SKY joined KL Rahul on the crease after Indian opener Rohit Sharma was caught and bowled by Jofra Archer.
SKY faces his first international ball and hammers it for six over deep fine leg, this marks his first international runs in the ongoing India vs England 4th T20 at Narendra Modi Stadium today, 18 March 2021. He played some excellent shots and looked solid throughout his innings.
Suryakumar scored 57 of 31 balls. He became the fifth player to score 50+ runs on T20I debut innings for India. SKY’s desperate try to hit back-to-back sixes made him lose his wicket. He scooped the ball towards fine leg and Malan took a ground touching catch. The main umpire signaled ‘out’ to an arguable catch. Thought the TV umpire checked for almost 5+ minutes to make sure before making their decision. As seen in the camera, Malan’s fingers under the ball. TV umpire did not find enough evidence to reverse soft signal and hence SKY’s top inning came to end with an arguable low catch.
