Suryakumar Yadav, without a doubt one of the greatest batters in the history of Twenty20 cricket, did not have a good performance in the second Twenty20 international against New Zealand on Sunday.
On a difficult surface, the standout player for India was only able to score 26 runs after facing 31 balls, as the team laboured mightily to meet its target of 101 runs.
Suryakumar was also involved in a run-out with Washington Sundar while he was on the crease, and it took place while he was there. When Surya voiced his displeasure at not being allowed a single, Washington ended up giving up his wicket in order to save him.
The occurrence took occurred during India’s batting in the 15th over of the game. Suryakumar, the belief that a single could be achieved, rushed down the wicket, but Washington remained uninterested throughout the entire process. Surya was adamant about not going back, and he encouraged Sundar to go for a run despite the latter’s reluctance.
Understanding the significance of the senior batter’s wicket, Washington ultimately decided to give up his wicket by allowing Surya to touch the crease at the conclusion of the innings where he was not the striker.
On Sunday, India defeated New Zealand by six wickets in a low-scoring and stressful second Twenty20 international match, levelling the series at 1-1. Suryakumar Yadav hit an unbeaten 26 during the match, which led to India’s victory.
On a slow and moving field in Lucknow, India held New Zealand to a score of 99-8, with Yuzvendra Chahal leading the spin-charge for India. New Zealand had previously won the first match of the three-match series.
India then continued to lose wickets as the New Zealand bowlers dragged the game into the last over, but Suryakumar and Hardik Pandya anchored the difficult run chase to ensure that they were successful with one ball to spare.
Spin was used throughout the entire match for a total of 30 overs, although neither team managed to hit a six during their innings.
