Date:

Former India National Cricket Team wicketkeeper-batsman Parthiv Patel showered praise on the middle-order batsman Suryakumar Yadav for his sensational century in the third and final T20I match against England at the Trent Bridge in Nottingham, saying that his knock “might be the best knock in Indian T20I history”.

After that, Suryakumar Yadav batted brilliantly and added 119 runs with middle-order batsman Shreyas Iyer for the 4th wicket. The 31-year-old completed his maiden T20I century off 48 balls to become the 5th Indian batter to smash a century in T20 International (T20I) cricket after Suresh Raina, Rohit Sharma, KL Rahul and Deepak Hooda.

Overall, the right-handed batsman scored 117 runs off 55 balls, including 14 fours and 6 sixes, before being dismissed by Moeen Ali in the 19th over. India lost the match by 17 runs, but won the series by 2-1.

Speaking to Cricbuzz, Parthiv Patel said that the Nottingham T20I between India and England will be remembered for Suryakumar’s outstanding innings. He added that the innings played by the ‘360 degree player’ is probably the best knock played by a batter in Indian T20I history.

“While both teams made over 200 in this match, this match will be known for his innings. I always believe that if a player can score a six at fine-leg and cover, the bowler does not have many options. If there is someone in the world who can play 360 degrees at the moment, it is Suryakumar Yadav.”

“He does not even take risks. The shot selection is very good, so is the control. He showed this throughout the IPL and has been showing this for Indian cricket as well for a while. This might be the best knock in Indian T20I history, despite coming in a losing cause. It will take a while to see a better innings than this,” he added.
