India and England are going to face each other in the second semifinal of the ICC T20 World Cup today at Adelaide.
While the match is going to be an interesting one to watch for all the fans, there is one player in particular that Jos Buttler and his men have their eyes on.
It is none other than Suryakumar Yadav who is the star for India in this tournament. He is the third-highest run-getter with 225 runs.
So, if England wants to go past India, they will have to dismiss SKY early on in India’s innings.
While everyone is heaping huge praises on SKY, former England captain, Nasser Hussain is trying to pinpoint Surya’s strengths and weaknesses.
In an interview with Michael Atherton for SKY Sports, Hussain said that he got around 15 strengths of Surya but just one weakness.
It was funny. I sent the CricViz guys a request. They were doing some prep for the game. I said, ‘Come on, send me the strengths and weaknesses of Suryakumar Yadav. And on the WhatsApp group I got some 15 strengths- plays pace bowling well, spin well, hits through the square, scoops it more than any cricketer in the history of the game.
Hussain was flabbergasted by the single weakness which was Surya struggles against slow left-arm spin.
Unfortunately, England doesn’t have any at the moment and Liam Dawson is struggling with an injury.
Moreover, Hussain is of the opinion that Mark Wood can pose some trouble for Surya in the game.
It’s going to have to be Mark Wood up front. I would use him just to test Suryakumar out. He pulled Jofra (Archer) for six of his first ball. He might want to go harder up front with Wood. You know anybody can fail.
