IND vs NZ: “He’s a player who can hit you and hurt you in a number of areas” – Tim Southee on Suryakumar Yadav


Indian Cricket Team recorded a clinical victory over the mighty New Zealand. The Men in Blue would be delighted as winning the match by 65 runs is a huge number in T20I Cricket. Suryakumar Yadav, the sparkling right-handed batter, crushed his 2nd T20I century and looked in beast mode.

New Zealand would suffer if their skipper struggled again. Williamson smashed half a century, but his inability to break boundaries hurt the team. The right-handed batter used up a lot of dot balls and hesitated between attacking or defending.

Tim Southee on Suryakumar Yadav

Tim Southee was seen at a post match press conference being asked about Suryakumar Yadav. “Anytime a T20 player gets a hundred in a game, that’s often the difference. You look at the rest of the side and the way we kind of batted, his innings was miles away from anything else we saw today.

“Probably it made them get a score that was probably a little bit more than what we were hoping for. It was an exceptional innings and it was limiting the difference between India to 175-180 and then getting over 190,Southee said.

Invincible Suryakumar Yadav

The right-handed batsman once again showed world cricket why he is one of the best batsmen in modern cricket. The peculiarity of his knock was that he did not throw his wicket, as he made sure to keep to the end.

Plus, it looked like he was playing with the bowlers. The way he decimated Southee & Co was quite captivating. The batter had all the shots in the book as none of the variations proved to be effective.

Management is said to be pumped up as this is Suryakumar Yadav’s first stint in New Zealand. Captain Hardik Pandya would be well aware of the fact that the rest of the batters have to contribute as Suryakumar will not play a significant hit for the team every time. With only 1 T20I left, management seems unlikely to experiment.
