Former batter Ross Taylor said that Suryakumar Yadav’s knock in the second T20I on Sunday is one of the best he has seen on New Zealand soil. On November 20, Yadav scored an unbeaten 51-ball 111 with the help of 11 fours and seven sixes.
On the back of his knock, India beat the Black Caps by 65 runs at Bay Oval in Mount Maunganui and took an unassailable 1-0 lead in the three-match series.
“It was an unbelievable innings. The way he started, the way he hits gaps; I have seen a lot of good innings in New Zealand by McCullum, Guptill, Munro, but that would have to be up there with the best T20 hundreds I have seen on these shores in the history of the game,” Taylor was quoted as saying to ESPncricinfo.
