Suryakumar Yadav

Suryakumar Yadav is certainly one of the best T20 batters in the world. His consistent performance in India vs West Indies series has been nothing but a blessing for the Indian team. However, in the last match of the T20I series, he was not able to make his team win, even though he performed well. Suryakumar Kumar recently achieved a great T20 feat. He is the only batter in the world, who has scored 1700+ runs in the T20I with a strike rate of over 170. This clearly shows that he is consistent and at the same time a very quick scorer too.
