In the 44th over, facing Cameron Green, Yadav unleashed a display of power-hitting, smashing four consecutive sixes. His first six was a classic flick over deep backward square leg, sending the ball sailing into the stands. He followed it up with a scoop over fine leg for his second six of the over, clearing the boundary by a long margin. His third six off Green was elegantly struck over deep extra cover, and he concluded the onslaught with a flick over deep mid-wicket for his fourth six.

Here is the video of the onslaught from Suryakumar Yadav:

Cameron Green, recognizing the danger, wisely bowled outside Yadav’s range to prevent a fifth consecutive six. Nevertheless, he conceded 26 runs in the over, making him the most expensive bowler in the game. In this match, Australia decided to rest their star bowlers, Pat Cummins and Mitchell Starc, opting to experiment with other bowling options.
