The year 2022 has been no less than a dream season for Suryakumar Yadav. This year he scored 1,164 runs in 31 matches at an average of 46.56 and a strike rate of 187.43.
Not only this, he was second only to Virat Kohli in terms of scoring the most runs in the T20I World Cup. He scored 239 runs in 6 matches at a strike rate of 189.68.
This is the reason that in such a short span of time, he is being termed as the best batsman in the world in T20I cricket. Not only this, he was also compared to 360 degree player AB de Villiers.
Seeing his batting, not only the cricket stars of his country but also the cricket stars from all over the world are praising him.
Australia all-rounder Glenn Maxwell said that he watches his batting. He told an anecdote about Surya, how he sent the picture of the scorecard to Aaron Finch when Surya was batting and asked what was happening? He was batting like he was from a different planet.
You see their score and then you see the score of others. Talking to The Grade Cricket, he said that I saw his replays later and it was surprising to me how he was playing differently from the rest. No one can even come close to him in terms of his style of play.
Maxwell’s opinion on Surya playing in BBL -:
When Maxwell was asked about Suryakumar Yadav playing BBL, he replied with a laugh. We do not have that much money, there is no chance. We have to take out every player. We cannot afford them.
