Former Pakistan cricketer Salman Butt believes that the upcoming ICC Men’s T20 World Cup 2021 is a perfect opportunity for Suryakumar Yadav to show his mettle. The former stated that if he performs well in the tournament, he can become a hero in India. For Suryakumar Yadav, it will be the golden opportunity to announce himself on the big stage.
“The World Cup or any other big tournament is an opportunity for youngsters to prove themselves on the grand stage. If they are able to win games for their team in the World Cup, they definitely become heroes and people to be remembered. Their careers get launched on a very high note. It is a great opportunity for Suryakumar Yadav to announce himself on a grand stage. Not only Suryakumar Yadav but also people like him, who are part of other teams.”
Suryakumar Yadav has had a fantastic couple of years. He made his international debut in the T20 series against England. He went on to score a half-century in his debut match. In the last T20 series against Sri Lanka, Surykumar Yadav scored a half-century in the only game he played. In the ODIs, he managed to score 124 runs in 3 matches at an average of 62.
The upcoming T20 World Cup is scheduled to start on 17th October. Suryakumar Yadav is part of India’s squad for the T20 World Cup 2021. He is most likely be playing at number four in the playing XI. Recently, Gautam Gambhir also stated that Suryakumar Yadav is the ideal choice at number four in India’s playing XI for the perennial tournament.
“He can lap you, he can late cut you, he can hit you over extra cover; he’s got all the shots, especially at No.4, because sometimes No.4 is the most tricky position to bat in T20 cricket, probably the easiest is the top three, but No.4, because you might be in when you have lost two early wickets and you still want to continue the momentum,” Gautam Gambhir stated on Star Sports.
