It was a one-man show when it came to India’s chance to bat in the third T20I against England at Trent Bridge, Nottingham as Suryakumar Yadav played a knock of 117 runs off just 55 balls. His knock did not prove to be enough to take India over the line, but the manner in which the batter went about his innings will please team management and the fans. Chasing 216, Suryakumar Yadav kept India in the game for the majority of the time and only after his dismissal in the penultimate over, the deal was sealed for England.
As soon as Suryakumar Yadav completed his century, Twitter went into overdrive with many former players praising the knock of the right-handed batter.
Wow SKY! Surya shining at it’s brightest. Crazy hitting #IndvEng
