India’s second league match in the Asia Cup. In front of Dubai stadium and India was a weak team like Hong Kong. It looked like India’s batsmen would score a lot of runs. But in the initial overs, the Hong Kong bowlers did not allow this to happen. Trying to score fast, captain Rohit Sharma got out after scoring 21 runs. At the same time, KL Rahul was playing a Test match. His flop show continued in the second match as well. The ball was not coming on Rahul’s bat. While Virat Kohli was looking for his lost form. In such a situation, he was afraid to play big shots.
KL Rahul was dismissed for 36 runs in 39 balls. Strike rate of just 92.30. Suryakumar Yadav came to bat after his dismissal and told how to bat on the Dubai pitch.
Reminds me of de Villiers and Dhoni
When the long shots were coming out of Surya’s bat, he remembered former South African legends AB de Villiers and Mahendra Singh Dhoni. He showed a 360 degree shot like de Villiers as well as Dhoni’s helicopter shot in his innings. Let us know when and how Suryakumar shot 360 degree as well as helicopter shots…

Suryakumar Yadav scored against Hong Kong at a strike rate of 261.
Ajaz Khan was shot in such a way that he kept watching
The 16th over of the Indian innings was going on. The Hong Kong bowler was Ejaz Khan and it was the fourth ball of the over. Ijaz bowls the ball outside the off side. Suryakumar took a step forward and, leaning down de Villiers’ style, passed the ball over the wicketkeeper to the boundary. Seeing his shot, the entire Hong Kong team, including the bowler, kept watching him. Former veteran players doing commentary have even said that Surya is de Villiers of India.
Surya hit 4 brilliant sixes in the last over and added 26 runs from the over.
Helicopter shot played on Ayush Shukla’s ball
Ayush Shukla came to bowl the 18th over of the Indian innings and on the fourth ball of the over, Surya played a helicopter shot like Dhoni. The ball went outside the boundary. Surya scored 15 runs in this over.
During the inning break, when he was asked about this shot, he said, ‘I had not practiced all these shots before. When I was very young, I used to play a lot more cricket with my friends on a hard pitch than with a rubber ball. So these kinds of shots have come from there inside me. When I was sitting inside the dug-out with Pant and Rohit, I had already told them that once it is set, I will try all those shots and try to take the score to 170.
After Suryakumar’s brilliant innings, former Team India captain Virat Kohli bowed in his honor and saluted him.
The shots that Surya was playing against Hong Kong were similar to those played by AB de Villiers during his time.
4 sixes in the last over
Suryakumar Yadav along with Virat Kohli scored 54 runs in the last 3 overs. In this 41 runs came from Surya’s bat. He hit 4 sixes in the last over of the innings. He scored a total of 26 runs off the balls of Haroon Arshad, who came to bowl the 20th over. After three consecutive balls in the first three balls, then the fourth ball was dot, the fifth ball crossed the boundary for a six.
