The flamboyant Indian batter, Suryakumar Yadav played a fantastic knock in the game against Hong Kong and clearly showed why he is rated among the best T20I batters going around. He made a brilliant partnership of an unbeaten 98 with former skipper, Virat Kohli for the third wicket and helped India to reach a huge total.

During the interaction, Kohli wanted to know if Suryakumar was aiming to smash six sixes in the final over. The question had popped up after Suryakumar hit three sixes off the first three balls in the final over of the innings and there were immediate comparisons with Yuvraj Singh who hit six sixes in an over in 2007.

Suryakumar Yadav cheekily replied to Kohli stating that he doesn’t want to get past Yuvraj’s record on a funny note. In a video shared by the BCCI, he said, “I was trying my best. But, let’s not get past Yuvi paa.”
