Suryakumar Yadav, aka SKY just plummeted bowlers and skyrocketed his knock in Third T20I against West Indies. His knock of 65* of just 31 deliveries including 7 humongous Sixes and a four helped India to sail through easily across this match to put up a clean sweep against WI.
For his exceptional run against WI he was bestowed upon with Man of the series award at the closing ceremony of series.
Suryakumar’s 65-run knock was backed up by a spirited bowling performance as India defeated West Indies by runs in the third and final T20I here at the Eden Gardens on Sunday. Harshal Patel returned with three wickets while Venkatesh Iyer also got two wickets.
“Just wanted to replicate what I did in the first game. Needed someone to stay there after Rohit got out and get the team to a defendable total. We had a long chat in the team meeting as to how we are going to react under immense pressure and it came out very well,” Suryakumar said.
“I just try to keep things simple. Being a little harsh on yourself in the nets, don’t hit every ball wildly and have some quality sessions. Excited for the next series,” he added.
Earlier, Suryakumar Yadav (65) and Venkatesh Iyer (35*) starred with the bat as India posted 184/5 in the allotted twenty overs. In the last five overs, the hosts managed to add 86 more runs to the total, taking the score past the 180-run mark. Iyer and Suryakumar Yadav formed a 91-run partnership for the fifth wicket.
With this win, India won the three-match T20I series 3-0. Earlier, the Men in Blue had defeated West Indies 3-0 in the ODI series as well. India will next lock horns against Sri Lanka in a three-match T20I series, beginning Thursday.
SKY is highly known for his power hitting abilities even in tensed situation and always helps to bail the team out of the crisis.
