Suryakumar Yadav took India to 133/9 in 20 overs against South Africa in the ICC T20 World Cup. It was his 68 off 40 balls.
South African pacers bowled exceptionally well from the start. Lungi Ngidi got rid of KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma, Virat Kohli, and Hardik Pandya to leave the Men in Blue in trouble.
While, Wayne Parnell sent Dinesh Karthik, Ravichandran Ashwin, and Suryakumar Yadav back to the dugout.
However, a counterattack by SKY, restored some pride. He hit 6 fours and 3 sixes, and his runs came at a strike-rate of 170.0
With this he registered two Indian milestones and a world record in Perth.
SKY is the first Indian to score 1000 T20 runs while batting at No.4 or lower in a calendar year.
