India defeated New Zealand by 65 runs in the second T20.
The second match between India and New Zealand will be played on 22 November.
New Delhi. The T20 series between India and New Zealand has started. The first match between the two teams was rained off, while in the second match, Team India defeated the hosts by 65 runs. In this match, New Zealand captain Kane Williamson won the toss and decided to bowl first. But India’s deadly batsman Suryakumar Yadav overturned Williamson’s strategy.
The pair of the Indian team could not do anything special. After that, Mr. 360 degree, who came to bat in place of Virat Kohli, presented his skills. One of the bowlers of the Kiwi team did not work in front of Sky and a stormy century came in front. Surya played a blistering inning of 111 runs in just 51 balls with the help of 5 fours and 7 sixes. After this stormy century, many veterans have tied bridges of praise for this player. Ross Taylor, former player of the Kiwi team, is also included in this episode. He has compared Skye to legendary players like Brendon McCullum and Martin Guptill.
Surya takes calculated risks – Ross Taylor
Ross Taylor praised Sky saying, ‘It was an incredible innings. The way he hit the opening gap, I have seen many great innings by McCullum, Guptill, Munro in New Zealand. But this is one of the best T20 centuries I have seen in the history of the game.
He further said, ‘Suryakumar Yadav takes risks after measuring. Inside out shots over the covers against spinners are risky. I think he had a bit of luck against Ferguson. Also, I don’t think they really gave any chance to the opposing team. He hit shots over the fielders.
Deepak Hooda also did a great performance
Captain Hardik Pandya also bet on Team India’s all-rounder Deepak Hooda. He made good use of Hooda in bowling and he too lived up to his expectation. He also took 4 wickets for 10 runs in just 2.5 overs. Apart from this, team Yuzvendra Chahal and Mohammad Siraj also made two successes in their name.
