For the last one year, Suryakumar Yadav has started playing ball around the field. But if one looks beyond the glare, he has solved a long-standing problem for India i.e. number four in the shorter formats of cricket. India has tried many batsmen at this position. Remember Manish Pandey, Kedar Jadhav, Shreyas Iyer? All are good batsmen but somehow they didn’t last long.

He completed his half-century in just 24 balls at the start of his innings and hit huge sixes in the second half of his game. One would have realized that the more he plays, the more runs he will score. Captain Rohit Sharma also played a brilliant innings of 43 runs, while Kohli again delighted his fans with a brilliant innings of 49 runs. Karthik came to play in the last over and scored 17 runs in 8 balls, which also included 2 smart sixes. This underscores his role that the finishers were consistently scoring runs from the very first ball. India scored 105 runs in last 6 overs as Suryakumar Yadav, Kohli and Karthik South Africa The bowling was destroyed. Suryakumar Yadav is becoming reliable in the batting order of Rohit, Virat and Rahul.
