Former Indian cricketer Suresh Raina praised Suryakumar’s wide range of shots and held up the bat to give him time to play in the upcoming Border Gavaskar series. Suryakumar played a great game in his 2022 as a center hitter as he scored 1164 runs in 31 T20I innings.
Suryakumar Yadav had a great game in his 2022, as a center hitter he scored 1164 runs in 31 T20I innings. This was his approach and fans began comparing him to the South African legend he AB De Villiers in his innovative batting displays. With a batting average of around 190, Suryakumar was also able to hit 2nd century and 9.5 century in short form. Suryakumar was named the ICC Player of the Year on Wednesday in recognition of his achievements. Suryakumar has established his authority in the short format and now wants to do the same with the long format.
Suryakumar is included in the squad for his first two Tests against Australia, which begin in Nagpur on 9 February. Suryakumar has yet to test, but Rishabh Pant was injured in a horrific car accident, so he gave up the empty seat and KL Rahul was able to join the wicketkeeper’s duties.
Former Indian cricketer Suresh Raina shared his view on this, praising Suryakumar’s wide shots and helping batsmen to give him playing time in the upcoming Border Gavaskar series. “From his performance, I think he should have played in all three formats and without him all three formats shouldn’t have existed. His performance, the way he shows his intentions, the variety of shots. He knows how to play fearlessly and use ground dimensions,” Raina said in an exchange with Viacom18 Sports’ Aakash Chopra.
“He is a player from Mumbai and knows how to play red ball cricket. You can get stability, he’ll hit a few hundred seconds and then 200 seconds,” he added. The upcoming series is eagerly watched by cricket enthusiasts as it will decide India’s fate in the World Test Championship (WTC). India is now her second in the WTC table behind Australia, and a win in the series will help cement her place in the summit battle.
