Suryakumar Yadav shared one of Virat Kohli’s incredible reactions during one of their partnerships, the former India captain has contributed to a few of those knocks.

Suryakumar Yadav, who attained the top spot in the ICC T20I batting rankings in 2022, has been in sensational form in T20 cricket. Not his run total of 1164 runs, which was the most in 2022, but his capacity to hit at a strike rate of 187.43 and average 46.56 at the same time made his T20I figures for the year look dangerous.

Nine 50s and two 100s are also included in his total. During one of their partnerships, Suryakumar mentioned one of the incredible reactions that former India captain Virat Kohli had to one of their knocks.

With 535 runs scored in 11 innings, two-century partnerships, and two fifty-scores, Kohli and Suryakumar have been the most prolific T20I pair in 2022. Five of those runs took place at the T20 World Cup that was held in Australia earlier this year, including a breathtaking 95-run stand against the Netherlands.

“Once I was batting with Virat Kohli bhai, and he came and told me “Are you playing video games? You are at a different level. It felt nice to hear these things,” he revealed during an interview with Indian Express.

“Rohit Sharma saw so many knocks that a time”: Suryakumar Yadav

Suryakumar further disclosed that Rohit Sharma, the India captain, had previously given him the freedom to express himself in white-ball formats while closely monitoring his ascent.

“Rohit Sharma is the only one who has seen me in quite some time. But this season, he took so many blows that he didn’t tell me anything. In a few games, he stated Now I don’t have anything to say about you,” he said.

Suryakumar Yadav has been in explosive form in T20 cricket throughout 2022, the year that saw him rise to the No.1 ranking spot in the ICC T20I battings chart.
