Suryakumar Yadav: Suryakumar Yadav, the number one T20 International batsman and India’s captain for the five-match T20 International series against Australia, is just a few steps away from breaking a record of former Pakistan captain Babar Azam and star Indian batsman Virat Kohli. In fact, Surya can become the fastest batsman to score 2000 thousand runs in T20 International.
However, it will not be so easy for Surya to break this record because he needs 159 runs in the next innings to get his name written on this record. If he scores 159 runs in the next innings, he will break Babar Azam’s record. If Surya scores 159 runs in the next two innings, he will equal Babar Azam and Pakistan wicketkeeper batsman Mohammad Rizwan. Actually, Babar and Rizwan had touched the figure of 2000 runs in 52 innings of T20I.
If Surya scores 159 in the next five T20 International innings, he will break Virat Kohli’s record. Kohli took 56 innings to cross the 2000 run mark in T20 International. Now it will be interesting to see which batsman’s record Surya can break. So far, Suryakumar has scored 1841 runs in 50 innings of T20 International at an average of 46.02 and strike rate of 172.70. During this period he has scored 3 centuries and 15 half-centuries.
Will take command of India for the first time
Let us tell you that Suryakumar Yadav will take charge of India for the first time in the T20 series against Australia. Hardik Pandya has captained the Indian T20 team in 2023. But due to his injury in the World Cup 2023, the responsibility of captaincy has been handed over to the number one batsman in the format. Ruturaj Gaikwad has been made the vice-captain of the team for the first three matches of the series. Shreyas Iyer will join the team as vice-captain in the last two matches.
