Suryakumar Yadav, the star batsman of the Indian cricket team, once again presented a spectacular sight of his explosive batting ability and scored a fiery half-century in the Asia Cup against Hong Kong. On the pitch where KL Rahul and Virat Kohli had to struggle for runs, Surya scored runs at a strike rate of 261 including a hat-trick of sixes and took India to a strong score of 192 runs. Surya returned unbeaten after playing a blistering innings of 68 runs in just 26 balls.
Suryakumar Yadav could not bat as expected against Pakistan three days ago in Dubai ground and only 18 runs came out of his bat. Now on this ground, Surya showed his ‘360 degree batting’ style. KL Rahul and Virat Kohli were unable to bat freely after the dismissal of captain Rohit Sharma for the Indian team batting first against Hong Kong. The condition was that when Suryakumar came to the crease in the 13th over, the score was 94 runs.
Fastest half century of career
In such a situation, India not only needed a big score, but also needed more and more runs faster and this work was done by Surya. After coming to the crease, Surya sweeps his very first ball and hit a four at square leg. Then the same shot on the next ball and the same result. In this way, Surya filled the speed of the rocket in the last 7 overs.
In the last over, Surya completed his sixth half-century by hitting three consecutive sixes. This fifty of Surya came in just 22 balls, which is the fastest fifty of his career.
He came. He hit. He made us #BelieveInBlue with a 5⃣0⃣.
How many for #SuryakumarYadav‘s ️ knock?
