Richard Ngarava stopped abruptly in his follow-through. He turned his attention to Craig Ervine, stationed at additional cover. The captain sighed and made his way to the bowler carrying a message of the consolation of a plan with another alphabet. Zimbabwe had played some games against Suryakumar Yadav. They attempted the harder lengths using mid-off and mid-on up in the rings. They played the slower balls, hoping to block him speed on his scoops. They moved their point to the fence, and then introduced cover and mid-off into the rings.
This particular shot in the last over was a winner. its advantages. The left-arm seamer who was bowling on the wicket expected to rotate the ball over the right-hander. The off-side was secured by the sweeper cover at long-off and deep-point. To reach the legside the batter needed to make a shuffle and then hit the angle. This was confirmed when Hardik Pandya’s attempt to get there ended up with the short third-man being able to get an edge to catch. However, when the play was turned over to Suryakumar and again, the plan became more sour for Zimbabwe.
The only error that Ngarava did was that he didn’t get his wide yorkers to land however low full-tosses can be equally effective at the end of the day, particularly when they are angled diagonally towards one of the tram lines. Suryakumar was able to glide toward his right. He splayed with his front leg across towards the wide line. He dropped low to face the ball, and then employed his hands to sweep the ball over the square leg to score six. It all happened in a blur incredible improvisational brilliance.
Suryakumar Yodav is an T20I genius
Ngarava kept his foot on the ground and bowled a much better low full-toss. Suryakumar took him off again to get the four-over square leg. The blessing Muzarabani attended the conference before the final ball of the innings . He demanded that square leg be moved back towards the fence and the long-on be brought in the middle of the field. Suryakumar moved to the left once more and then flipped it over the short fine-leg to make another six before he began to walk toward the dug-out. Axar Patel as well as Wellington Masakadza made no attempts to conceal their excitement when Suryakumar passed by.

When the final part of the mini-sequence, the temptation was to say that has been suggested by some that Suryakumar is an T20 genius playing to the different physical rules. In the MCG during an World Cup game, he struck 61* off just 25, and hit at 244 strikes per innings, and the batsmen who batted alongside Suryakumar scored 108. becoming only the second batsman to hit 1000 T20I runs within a calendar year. He also helped lift India from a slight slump, and was equally ruthless and attractive at the same time.
If Suryakumar has been able to do this before in larger games, against tougher opponents, it will not affect his performance in front of 82,257 spectators. There’s always the temptation to be critical of the spectacular of the moment, however to perform the way Suryakumar did and then have his players say that they expected that’s a sign that we’re watching an athlete at the top of his powers that is consistently hitting at a high 180.
“Yeah It’s amazing,” India coach Rahul Dravid stated. “That’s why he’s the world’s No. 1 T20 player around the world currently because of his consistency in a format that requires scoring at the same strike rate of his own… It’s not an easy task to remain congru with the type of strike rate he’s playing at. This is why it’s so amazing that he’s been playing. I think he’s very transparent in his methods. He’s very transparent about his strategies.
