IND vs ENG: “Such Shots Are Next To Impossible”


In Sunday’s T20 World Cup 2022 match between India and Zimbabwe, Suryakumar Yadav was outstanding. The MI star scored 61 runs off 25 balls in an undefeated effort that featured six fours and four sixes.

Fans and former cricketers lavished appreciation on the 32-year-old. Virender Sehwag, a great batter, joined the chorus by poetically describing Suryakumar’s Melbourne innings.

“Wherever he wants to direct his shot, even if it’s not the right ball for that, he will make it reach there”, he said. 

“He can guide an off stump wide over the wicketkeeper to fine leg for a six. Such shots are next to impossible. But it’s Suryakumar, so it’s possible.” 

“If he wants to smack it to the covers, it’s Suryakumar, so it’s possible. If it needs to be launched over the bowler, it’s Suryakumar, so it’s possible”, he further added. 

India reached 186 for five in 20 overs thanks to Suryakumar’s contribution, setting a goal of 187 runs. KL Rahul, who batted first, also produced a significant innings, scoring 51 runs off of 35 balls. For Zimbabwe, Sean Williams was in good bowling form and claimed two wickets.

Zimbabwe, facing a target of 187 runs, was dismissed for 115 in 17.2 overs. With a three-wicket haul, Ravichandran Ashwin was in excellent bowling form for India. Mohammed Shami and Hardik Pandya each claimed two-wicket hauls in the meanwhile.

Despite being in decent batting form, Ryan Burl (35 off 22 balls) and Sikandar Raza (34 off 24 balls) were unable to lead their team to victory. 

The team captained by Rohit Sharma has also advanced to the semifinals, where they will take against England on Thursday.

I Bat According To The Situation And What The Team Needs: Suryakumar Yadav

After the game, Suryakumar Yadav, who was also named Player of the Match, said: “I think the plan was very clear when me and Hardik were batting together. He said we should take a positive route and we started hitting the ball and never stopped.

I think the atmosphere in the team is really nice and so is the build-up towards the knockout, really looking forward to that game.”

“My plan has always been clear, I do the same thing in the nets, I practise the same shots. I bat according to the situation and what the team needs. It feels really good, to be there (number 1 ranked T20I batter).

You got to start from zero everytime, that’s what I think. It’s good to see people come out, let’s see how it goes in the next game”, he further added.
