India’s Suryakumar Yadav is the No.1 T20I batter in the current scenario.
He’s usually batting in the No.4 position for India but this is an incredible feat from the batter.
Former New Zealand batter and T20I skipper, Ross Taylor believes that SKY has more firepower.
Yadav’s average is 40.65 along with an incredible strike rate of 177.
He has done this 21 times in his T20I career for India.
Four-five is the hardest place to bat in T20Is
Adding further, he says,
To be ranked No.1 when you’re batting behind KL Rahul, Rohit Sharma and (Virat) Kohli, some fantastic batters in there, and for him to just come out and play the way he does is a credit to him.
Taylor also had a good close-up view of Suryakumar Yadav when he came to India to watch him bat.
Taylor also pinpointed SKY’s advantages and praised his batting skills as well.
He’s able to utilise the pace, play some dinky shots, but at the same time he’s got the power, he’s able to hit those pockets, hit them hard.
Taylor also says that Suryakumar has silenced all his critics who thought that he wouldn’t be able to perform in Australia.
There was a lot of talk leading into (the ICC Men’s T20 World Cup), that he’d scored a lot of runs in India but could he do it away from home, and I think he’s proved a lot of those people wrong.
Adding further he says,
The big boundaries as well, he’s smacking them for six on the biggest boundaries in the world, so he’s silenced a lot of critics.
