Team India has managed to reach the semi-finals of the ICC T20 World Cup 2022 owing to a dominating win over Zimbabwe by 71 runs. Sublime performances from the Indian batters, KL Rahul and Suryakumar Yadav guided the Men in Blue to a mammoth total of 186 in their 20 overs before the Indian bowlers restricted their opponents well short.
However, the recent performances from Suryakumar Yadav have garnered a lot of limelight for all good reasons and this time he grabbed the attention of the legendary AB de Villiers. The former South Africa skipper heaped ultimate praise on Yadav for his performance against Zimbabwe as he scored 61* runs off just 25 balls, including a few shots similar de Villiers’ style.

Well played today.” Earlier, Suryakumar had reacted to his comparison with de Villiers after being branded the new-age 360-degree player. In response to the reports.
Earlier during the post-match presentation, Suryakumar Yadav said, “There is only one 360-degree player in the world and I will try to play like him.” Coming to the match, Team India registered a comprehensive win over Zimbabwe as they posted a mammoth total of 186 in their stipulated 20 overs.
In response to the massive score, the African nation was thoroughly beaten by the bowling unit and humbled as India won the two points from the contest. India along with the likes of Pakistan have registered their spots in the semi-finals of the tournament from the Group 2 of the Super 12 stage.

The side will look to maintain the sheer dominance they projected against Zimbabwe and will look to clinch the coveted title this year since their last win in the T20 finals back in 2007.
