“Can’t Shut Him Down”: Faf du Plessis’ Ultimate Praise For Suryakumar Yadav After Whirlwind Knock

Written by Mohan Sharma

Chasing a stiff 200-run target set by Royal Challengers Bangalore, MI on Tuesday romped home in 16.3 overs.

RCB skipper Faf du Plessis felt they were 20 runs short.

“I think at least 20, the context of the wickets so far this season, anything under 220 with MI’s batting line-up. They are a strong side, they bat deep. We didn’t capitalise on the last five overs (of our innings), so very disappointed,” he said.

Du Plessis was in awe of Suryakumar Yadav’s 35-ball 83-run knock for MI.

“(SKY) He’s one of the best, when he gets going he’s really difficult to bowl to. So many options you can’t shut him down. (Siraj) He’s been fantastic, the nature of T20 cricket is bowlers will be under pressure. That is the nature of the beast, long batting line-ups and guys are going to come out and play positively,” he said.
