Suryakumar Yadav has been making headlines for his breezy knock of 68 runs in 26 balls which included 6 fours & 6 huge sixes. The batter silenced all the critics who were questioning his place in the team after an off day against Pakistan. Suryakumar Yadav has shown his potential by performing exceptionally well against England & West Indies. Head Coach Rahul Dravid would be delighted after seeing Suryakumar Yadav dazzle as the pitch was not that easy.

Gautam Gambhir, the legendary batter was praiseworthy for the batter. Gambhir in India vs Pakistan clash was seen criticizing Virat Kohli for his bad shot selection. The former batter doesn’t seem to fear anyone before making any statement. Gautam Gambhir was one of the architects behind the 2007 T20  & 2011 Triumph as he knows what sort of performances are required to win championships.

Suryakumar Yadav is someone who doesn’t wait for the occasion to go bang bang. In the Hong Kong match, the stylish batter set the tone immediately. He can take the bowler by surprise by playing funky shots and he has an ability to play 360-degree shots which makes him a dangerous asset to have.

The batter would be aware of his previous Pakistan match outing where he didn’t have a great time in the middle. As Ravindra Jadeja is out of the tourney, it looks likely that the batter will play at the No.4 position. He has tasted success in the top order and the management, now won’t be looking to change after his powerful performance against Hong Kong.
