Suryakumar Yadav has been awarded his first BCCI central contract
Suryakumar Yadav, India’s ace middle-order hitter, has been rewarded for his outstanding batting of late by being included in the Board of Control for Cricket in India’s (BCCI) central contracts for the first time.
The 31-year-old batsman, who has played seven one-day internationals and 14 T20 internationals for India, has signed a ‘Grade C’ deal for Rs 1 crore per year.
The dashing Mumbai hitter, who earned his national cap last year against England at home, was overjoyed. After scoring a tonne of runs in domestic cricket and the Indian Premier League, he received the call. He didn’t get to bat in his first game, but he made a statement in the second by hitting 57 off just 31 pitches. Yadav has a strike rate of 165 in T20 internationals, which is 23 points higher than his T20 strike rate of 142.
Yadav has a reputation for being a floater who can make an impression wherever he is asked to bat. The guy may also switch gears at certain points throughout a match and, if necessary, can switch to a part-time off-spin bowler with 24 first-class wickets.
