After Suryakumar Yadav orchestrated Team India’s impressive victory over New Zealand, the former cricketer from Pakistan lashed out at the Indian selection committee. Suryakumar Yadav led Team India to a comfortable victory over New Zealand in the second Twenty20 International on Sunday, when Hardik Pandya and co. scored 65 runs to defeat the hosts.
Suryakumar scored a century to help Team India, without Rohit Sharma, take a 1-0 lead in the three-match series at Mount Maunganui’s Bay Oval after being promoted to the No. 3 batting position. For his batting masterclass against the T20 World Cup 2022 semi-finalists, the fit batter won Player of the Match. Suryakumar gave the impression that he is getting closer to making his eagerly anticipated Test debut after leading Team India to an impressive victory over the team led by Kane Williamson.

Danish Kaneria, a former Pakistani cricketer, claimed that the Indian think tank wasted the top-ranked batter’s crucial cricketing years by giving Suryakumar a late opportunity.
“The Indian selectors wasted Suryakumar Yadav’s five years. However, he has made up for the lost time, proving his mettle at the highest level with consistent performances. Everywhere we look, each and every expert is talking about Suryakumar today,”the former Pakistan cricketer shared his views on YouTube.
In the penultimate match of the three-match series, India hammered New Zealand, and top-ranked batter Suryakumar remained unbeaten on 111 off 52 balls.It is anticipated that the fit batter will end the New Zealand series with the most runs scored.In the third and final T20I of the bilateral series on Tuesday, the swashbuckling batter will lead the batting charge for the team without Virat Kohli.

“The beast mode of Suryakumar Yadav continues. He picked up before the T20 World Cup, continued the same during the World Cup, and is now doing the same in New Zealand. He was phenomenal. The way he bats, there is no corner of the ground that he doesn’t utilize. There has never been a player in world cricket who has hit shots like these. The bowlers tend to look completely helpless against his onslaught,”Kaneria added.
