Virat Kohli lavishes praise on Suryakumar Yadav after Australia’s series victory

Virat Kohli and Suryakumar Yadav organized India’s thrilling 187-run chase against Australia on Sunday in Hyderabad to win the T20I series. Virat Kohli guided India to a 104-run victory with a 48-ball 63, while Yadav hammered 69 off 36 balls. Suryakumar Yadav, according to Kohli, has been in fantastic form over the last six months.

Before the third T20I, the series was tied at 1-1, and the two sides faced a do-or-die scenario. Australia set a 187-run target after the first innings, but the Indian hitters came up big in the last over, chasing it down with one ball to spare. After Kohli and Yadav were out, all-rounder Hardik Pandya maintained the momentum of the game, allowing India to win the series.

“It’s absolute clarity in what he wants to do. He has the game to bat at any sort of situation, in any conditions. He has shown that already. He got a hundred in England. He has batted beautifully in the Asia Cup as well. Here he was striking the ball as well as I have seen him,” Kohli said.

While chasing, India swiftly lost their opening pair of Rohit Sharma and KL Rahul. However, Kohli and Suryakumar batted well to maintain India in command for the duration of the innings. While Yadav fell in the 14th over, Kohli fell in the last over, but he had established the tone with Pandya on the field, making it simple for the latter to conclude the game comfortably.
