India’s top-ranked T20I batter at the moment is Suryakumar, who is renowned for his aggressive and deft batting approach. Both Kohli and Suryakumar have expressed their appreciation for one another and have collaborated on numerous crucial runs for India.

During a pivotal game between Royal Challengers Bangalore and Mumbai Indians in IPL 2020, Virat Kohli was observed attempting to scare Suryakumar Yadav. At that point, Kohli, who was fielding, picked up the ball and moved near Yadav.

The MI batsman remained stationary and maintained eye contact with Kohli. However, since that IPL 2020 episode, everything has changed drastically.

Virat Kohli recently praised Suryakumar for his performance:

Suryakumar’s performance against Hong Kong on Wednesday, as per recent comments from Kohli, “changed the flow of the game on a wicket that was not as easy as he made it look,” Kohli remarked.

“SKY played an outstanding knock, a knock that I enjoyed thoroughly from the other end,” Kohli said during a conversation with Suryakumar for BCCI.tv. “I’ve seen so many innings when we play in the IPL [against each other], or that being done to other teams, but this was my first experience of watching very closely.”

“I was completely blown away. I honestly believe that the way you played today, if you can stay in that zone, you can literally change the complexion of the game against any team in the world.”

Suryakumar is currently India’s top-ranked T20I batter.
