Former India player turned veteran commentator Aakash Chopra believes it will be an injustice to Suryakumar Yadav if he comes to bat any lower than No. 4 in India’s batting order. Yadav smashed an unbeaten 68 off just 26 balls in the Men in Blue’s final Group A match against Hong Kong in the Asia Cup 2022. His knock helped India post a mammoth total of 192/2 and they went on to win the match by 40 runs as well.

Suryakumar Yadav played a dominating knock

In a video shared on his YouTube channel, Chopra said: “This innings has once again reinforced the fact that you need to try and send Suryakumar Yadav higher up in the batting order. I will not say at No. 3, but you will do injustice to him if you send him below No. 4. It is said that the sky is the limit, but our SKY is limitless. How well he plays, his glitter is different, absolutely brilliant, Surya Namaskar. Hong Kong lost by just 40 runs and the difference between the two sides, believe it or not, was just one knock – Suryakumar Yadav.”

However, India’s score read 94/2 at the end of the 13th over when Yadav came to bat. He hit six fours and as many sixes to change the momentum of the innings.

“He is my Player of the Match. The top three (Rohit, Kohli and Rahul) also played, Kohli scored a half-century as well, but none of them played in T20 style, only one guy who played like that for India, he was Suryakumar Yadav. He was searching for six sixes in the last over. We call him Mr 360 and he is that sort of a player. I thought it will be difficult on this pitch and such a big ground because there is no pace on the ball but he played differently,” Aakash Chopra concluded.
