For Team India leading 2-1 in the T20 series against West Indies, the fourth T20 to be held in Lauderhill, USA on Saturday is very important. That is because with the victory in this match, Team India will get an unassailable 3-1 lead in the series. By the way, this match is also very important for Suryakumar Yadav because if his bat speaks in this match, then he will become the world’s No. 1 T20 batsman. Meaning he will leave Babar Azam behind. The question is, what will Suryakumar have to do to become number 1?
Suryakumar will go above Babur!
Babar Azam is the number 1 batsman of T20 with 818 points. He has remained in this position for the last one year but now Suryakumar Yadav has shaken his chair. This player is just 2 rating points behind Babar. Suryakumar Yadav can overtake the Pakistani captain in the fourth T20. For this, just Suryakumar Yadav will have to play just one effective innings. Meaning if Suryakumar makes 30-40 and the team wins the match, then he will become the No. 1 batsman in the world. And if Suryakumar hits a half-century, then consider Babar to be behind. Even if Suryakumar flops in the fourth T20, he will still have a chance to play a big innings in the fifth T20. Meaning Suryakumar has two chances to become number 1.
