India defeated Sri Lanka 2-1 in the three-match T20I series thanks to Suryakumar Yadav’s third T20I century, which enabled them to win the third and final match in Rajkot by 91 runs. India chose to bat first and amassed 228/5 on the board thanks in large part to Suryakumar’s 45-ball century, which later caused Sri Lanka to falter under the weight of run pressure. The visitors’ attempt to win their first series in India was unsuccessful as they were dismissed for 137 runs inside of 17 overs.
After Suryakumar’s lightning-quick innings, he was praised by both cricketers and fans. The batter’s teammate and legendary Indian batsman Virat Kohli also wrote a celebratory Instagram story for Suryakumar.
Suryakumar’s response to Kohli’s story was posted by the Board of Control for Cricket in India (BCCI) on Sunday, along with what the centurion said to the 34-year-old. Suryakumar Yadav responded to the story by smiling and saying, “Oh baba, look who has posted a story!” Kohli had posted two fire emojis and two applauding emojis alongside a picture of him from his century knock.
Additionally, Suryakumar wrote to Kohli in his reply, “Bhau, bohot saara pyaar. I’ll see you soon, Brother (much love. We’ll talk soon!) ”
